Wedding planning is hard.
I keep telling people that things are going okay, but I’m really starting to freak out and I’m getting to the point where I don’t want to do anything because I’m just afraid it’s going to get messed up. (My perfectionism causing problems again, I see.)
What am I learning in this? Patience, definitely, but I think I have the ability to be patient to a fault. I went to the
local florist for an initial consultation at the end of March. I didn’t hear from them in April, so I emailed. They said they were busy with a few tragic deaths in their community in a short time frame. I understand, it’s difficult. I still hadn’t heard from them in May. I emailed, they replied that they were busy with Mother’s Day. I emailed again at the beginning of this week and I haven’t heard back from them. It’s just frustrating!! Maybe I’m just using this blog post to vent about that, but I feel the need. I have someone from my school that is willing to help me design and put together silk flowers, so I’m going to work with her to get *something* done. (What do you think about the calla lilies? I really would love circus roses and tiger lilies in there too… still searching for pictures on that…)
Being that my fiance and I are 500 miles apart and the place where we’re getting married is somewhere in-between, it’s been really difficult to coordinate things. There are times where I just wish we would have waited until next summer, but I would have probably still have been putting certain things off.
I guess what I’m writing to tell myself, keep calm. Things will be fine. Like Tony said, “If, at the end of the day, we’re married, it will have been a success.”
