We are 2 weeks away from our wedding!! Ahh!! I’m so freaking exciting and officially counting down the days!
There is one thing I don’t understand.
Whenever I tell someone we are 2 weeks away from our wedding, people automatically assume that I’m stressed out. I get a lot of “I can’t believe how calm you are!” or “Wow! I bet you are stressed!” I just don’t get it. Why does every bride have to be stressed out? Why does society put this pressure on women and make us think we aren’t doing a good job of wedding planning if we aren’t stressed.
I’m personally not that stressed about this wedding. It’s not that I don’t care or I’m not getting anxious for our wedding, I’m choosing not stressed out!
Here are a few ways I’m keeping calm before our wedding:
I keep my perspective in check. Whenever I feel overwhelmed or like I can’t make a decision I remind myself this is only one day. Our wedding day is only 24 hours. (the same amount of time that Beyonce had for her wedding) I’m sure our wedding day will fly by too!
I stop myself from being indecisive. For the most part we’ve known what type of wedding we want. Sometime I’ll ask my fiancé some questions, but he only gets two options. To be honest, we have really limited our options so we don’t get overwhelmed.
I remember it is one party. This is only one of many parties we will host! I’m also not alone is hosting this, my fiancé and I are hosting it together!
It’s the start of our marriage! At the end of the day, we are having a wedding because it’s the beginning of our marriage! We are getting married! We are starting our life together and so lucky!
At the end of the day, I don’t understand why people put so much pressure on themselves. Let’s collectively agree to stop assuming that all brides are extremely stressed out. Not everyone wants a perfect white wedding so I think we all need to stop assuming and step back.
