It’s just incredible how quickly the 2014 year has gone. While brides are finalising plans for the Christmas and Summer weddings, the average Joe is fantasising over the upcoming holidays, hearty family meals, longer days and sultry summer nights.
Is it that we feel the passing of time more keenly as we get older? Or is it that we’re packing so much into life these days that time literally is flying in one door and out the other?
I often hear brides commenting on how quickly the months of planning went, so perhaps the age-old saying is true, and that time does fly when you’re having fun … and let’s be honest here … planning a wedding is a special time, and one should enjoy it to the max. If you’re tempted to have a Bridezilla or Groomzilla moment, take a deep breath, count to twenty, and relax!
Something else I’ve noticed is that the busier we are behind the scenes putting each issue together, the more ideas we come up with, and the more work we make for ourselves. We then put those thoughts into action, and more come bounding along … it’s a wonderful Catch 22 position … the thrill of constantly bettering your efforts.
That said, when planning a special event, there does come a time when you need to just stop. Constantly taking things to the next level can lead to disaster for the uninitiated and inexperienced. It’s great to set your sites high, but don’t make them so high that there’s no chance of success.
The most important thing is to have a day that is fun, memorable and completely you … whatever that YOU might be. If you’re a Boho chick, don’t try for too much glam. It won’t feel natural and you’re not likely to relax on the day.
