Sometimes I go into magazine and wedding blog overload. I find myself either so excited about too many potential details or I am completely non-committed and ready to elope. I need to back up and look at the big picture. I am marrying the man I love- my best friend. When I am able to look at the big picture the decisions regarding the color of the flowers and whether we have a band or a DJ seem pretty superficial. I don't really need to plan anymore for at least a few more months. We have a reception venue that caters, a photographer, and soon a church. We are one evite and an ipod away from a wedding! We don't need to rush to book the other vendors and and we can save more for the wedding. I want to be able to relish our engagement and enjoy the planning.
Therefore, I think I am going to start my posts with a countdown to the wedding. This may drive me crazy in about a year, once we get down to the three month marker, but for now I think it will remind me that I am in no hurry. When I say 430 days out loud, it calms me. I've got time.
