I have to say, as I panic over wedding planning which has been put on the extreme back burner while I started teaching my class, this is how I feel about most of it:
I do want a beautiful wedding that will be enjoyable for my friends, but in this day of Pinterest* wedding boards, wedding blogs and HUGE, dictionary sized wedding magazines, its easy to feel overwhelmed. I mean, will my friends and family think I'm a trashy jerk if I don't have a photo booth and artisanal cheeses? Will there be judgment over the extreme lack of Mason jars? Will my marriage even be recognized by the state if I don't have some adorable pennant flags?
I don't really care if anyone thinks my weeding is the coolest or anything, but this wedding stuff is just baffling to me. Where is the happy medium between the couple in the video and courthouse wedding with no guests? If you find it, that's where I need to be. Okay, enough with my rant, Happy Tuesday.
*In fairness, Pinterest has been a helpful tool and I did make myself a wedding board to help corral my ideas. Just looking at it now makes me realize... Man, I love chalkboards.
