Pep Talks

Thank goodness for friends on Gchat who can talk you down off the edge....

me: So nothing big, just something
3:46 PM I'm so stupid to keep adding sh*t to my plate
But I have a huge fear that everyone will think I put no effort into it, that I didn't do "enough"

8 minutes
3:54 PM Melissa: Honey, that will be the absolutely LAST thing anyone says about this wedding of the century.
me: I hope so
Melissa: They'll more likely say "how the h*ll did this bride do it and LIVE till her wedding. She did SO MUCH on top of having a full time job! Whew!"
me: But the reception decorating is minimal, just the table overlays, centerpiece and candles
That's all I got
3:55 PM There aren't any cutesy details anywhere
3:56 PM But thank you for saying so
I mean, I was all bummed about how simple our invites were
And one of Ryan's friend at the shower loved them
I'm probably just way too close to this I guess!

5 minutes
4:02 PM Melissa: Yeah, I think that's it.
We get so over-involved in our teeny tiny details, that it's obsessive.
no one but you will notice anything.
You know?

Melissa, you rock.


  1. Your wedding is going to be wonderful!!

  2. Thank goodness for Google Reader also, which reminds me throughout the day that there are other people out there who are going through the same sorts of nonsense that I am!

  3. ...and you have put so much thought and such a personal touch on EVERYTHING that has to do with your day that it will be impossible for people not to notice!!

  4. It's good to have friends like that who can keep it all real for us crazy brides! I felt the same way right before my wedding, but trust me when I say that once you get it all together in the venue it just all has more "oomph" that it does in your head right now. I promise!

    It's going to be beautiful!


Hearing from you all makes my day!
