I will celebrate my 5 year wedding anniversary in July this year. It feels like 30……
Does anyone else say that? Maybe, and of course when I say it everyone laughs a forced laugh and I reply with a, “oh I’m just kidding.” But truthfully speaking, some days it does. I am sure I can speak for Alex on this as well. Be it 5 years or 30 there is nobody I would rather annoy for the rest of my life than him!
Considering we are getting into the thick of wedding season I thought I would take a trip down memory lane and talk about some of the things I wish someone had told me on my big day. However, in thinking back there truly wasn’t anything I wasn’t prepared for. I had this wedding shit covered! I had been planning since I was 5 years old and each one of my Barbies got to marry my one Ken doll, he sure did get around! Seriously when it’s the game of Barbies who wants to waste their hard earned mowing money on Ken doll’s? NOT THIS GIRL!!
It may be hard to believe but I really was cool as a cucumber when planning my wedding. I knew what I wanted, and for the most part I was able to make it happen without a hitch!
There is one thing I can advise all you brides on. You will hear this about a million times in preparing for your wedding, and you will get sick of it, but it. is. so. true. Your wedding day is going to fly by. So at some point make sure you stop, take a moment, and breath it all in. Because in an instant it’s over and you are just a sad ex-bride sitting on your couch the next day refusing to take your veil off. What………….I’m not saying this was me………ok it was. Alex wouldn’t let me wear it on our honeymoon either. Fun hater……see why it feels like 30 years now instead of 5?!
So there is my unsolicited advice for brides. Just enjoy it, with a glass of wine in your hand and a wonderful man by your side!
**One other very important piece of advice that I was given on my wedding day was, “the one in white is ALWAYS right.” Great isn’t it?! So great that I put it on a shirt! You can wear this while you sip a mimosa and NOT be a bridezilla! YOU’RE WELCOME BRIDES!!!!!!!!!!!!
