Wedding planning… well as everyone who has planned a wedding knows, it is not always fun or easy to do. Often it is stressful and exhausting. I am lucky that my mom has been so supportive, and not in a pushy way. She lends an ear or gives her two cents, but only when I have NO Idea what I want to do or need some guidance. I thought going into the planning that finding my dress would be the most difficult thing to do, but I was wrong. When it came to my dress, I fell in love with the first dress I tried on. Talk about luck! Or, as my mom said, I just knew what I wanted. Not to mention as soon as I came out of the dressing room in THE dress my mom started to blubber… so that means it was a keeper!
The hardest thing thus far, for me, has been picking the flowers for the wedding and reception.
My mom offered to meet future Dr. Hubby and I at the florist for our consultation back in April to led some moral support. About 10 minutes into the consultation I was already feeling overwhelmed and anxious. I HAD NO IDEA THERE WERE SOOO MANY FLOWERS!! Not to mention there a lot of ways to display them. Short, tall, candles, no candles, glass vase, silver vase… options are endless. As I looked lost and confused listening to the florist my mom and future Dr. Hubby sat there quietly chuckling and giggling watching my eyes get huge and roll back in my head. Needless to say I walked out of that consultation more unsure about what I wanted than when I went in. It has been a couple months and I still have not figured out what I want, besides pink roses. Also, when I was shown how many different pink roses there were to choose from, I wanted to throw in the towel right there. “Alright, forget it. You win flowers!
Let’s hope I can put my big girl panties on and pick some damn flowers… soon 🙂 .
