Everyone says that something will inevitably go wrong when planning your wedding… and I’ve been paranoid about that for the last year.
Well, the paranoia is over because my my centerpieces were completely destroyed. My moms friend picked them up because she was going to bedazzle them for me, because she’s an angel, and someone rear-ended her on the way home.
All of my beautiful GLASS centerpieces. Ruined. The centerpieces that I got for $150 flat for 17. I had gotten an amazing deal and jus like that… they’re gone.
Now, we’re 5 weeks out to to the day, and I have no idea what we’re going to do. We’re strapped for cash because final payments need to be made, and I’ll never find anything that’s as perfect as what I had found. Anything now will be something I settle on because it’ll have to be cheap and it’s lost definitely last minute.
BUT, the silver lining here is that at the end of the day, whether we have centerpieces or favors or cake or not, or if it monsoons or snows or whatever, I’m still marrying the man of my dreams. No matter what could go wrong, the love of my life will be at the end of the isle waiting for me.
So ladies, whatever will be will be. A lot of things are going to be out of your control. Let it go. Remember the wedding is about marrying your soulmate. It’s not about all the bells and whistles that cost us a fortune and make us cut ourselves to sleep at night.
Take a deep breath. Have a tall glass of wine. It’s going to be ok.
