remember to smile.

{i could use this right about now}

It's truth time.
The wedding planning is taking it's toll.
We're getting down to the wire... less than two months to go... and the day to day decisions are starting to wear on me. I feel like I can't escape the planning. There is always an email, voicemail, question, statement, etc waiting for me to respond to. And I know I'm no different than any other bride but I'm here to state from this bride... it ain't easy.
I'm tried of thinking about the wedding... I just want to be married. Is that too much to ask?
But I asked for this and now is the time to execute. And I have to remind myself that it is all a means to an end. And that end means marrying my Guy.
So I'm going to take my smile and keep on keepin' on. What is that saying? Stay Calm and Carry On? That has become my wedding motto.
Hope you're enjoying your Wednesday. For some reason it's felt like Wednesday all week so this is my third Wednesday of the week. Let's hope it's a good one!
xoxo

Totally normal, I think every bride feels like this the last couple months. It can be tiring and stressful but totally worth it in the end. Try to enjoy this time as much as possible because it will only happen once.

That would be a cute thing to put in a lunch room that smile print! Ohh best wishes with the rest of the wedding planning!!! =)

Oh darling, I hate to read this. I so want you to enjoy every last second of the engagement, such a magical time. It'll be here before you know it!! And then the stress will be over.

I am already getting sick of wedding planning and I have 6 months to go. I will be sure to adopt your motto. I feel bad now for tweeting you a wedding link, sorry Morgan!! Hang in there, you are going to have a beautiful wedding and it will be wondering to marry Guy and you will live happily every after ;)

I can only imagine the stress you are going through. Those 2 months will fly by though, and soon you'll be a Mrs!! Hang in there, and don't be afraid to ask people for help!!

What a cute thing to randomly put on bulletin boards around town. Just found your blog and I'm loving it so far.

Good luck with the wedding planning. I've been married for 18 years and I'll say I don't think too much of my dress or decorations. My husband was in Med school when we got married so we didn't have too much money. The thing I do remember was having the ones I love there and since my mother is now gone, I'm glad I have a picture from that day! Don't stess too much over the planning and details because none of that stuff really matters. It doesn't have to be perfect. Your guy is marrying you not the dress or details!
