A friend of mine got married recently, and it was so interesting to hear her thoughts on weddings after hers was over. Partially because they were so similar to my own. What we both noticed is that the thing that often stands out, after it’s all done, and the thing that really makes it feel magical, is the overwhelming amount of love, care and joy expressed toward the two of you from your friends and family. More than maybe any other time in your life.
It’s easy to forget that’s an aspect of it when you’re wrapped up in little details, but when it hits, it feels so profound and so much more meaningful than what favors guests will be taking home or how your dress looked. It’s shocking too, to suddenly hear just how much the people in your life want good things to happen to the two of you, but shocking in an incredibly wonderful way.
So, when things get a little crazy in the months and weeks leading up to your wedding, remind yourself that there’s something bigger—and better—ahead that has nothing to do with planning or budgets.
And, now, the links we’re loving from around the web this week:
Have a wonderful weekend!
