Second Guessing

“I’ll take that one. . . . no, no wait – that one. Maybe this one is better. What do you think?”

Lately, I’ve been second guessing every decision I’ve made in my wedding planning process. I told you about my wedding dress and how much I love, love, love it.

The off-the-shoulder style I just wasn’t too crazy about. Next was a strapless gown with detachable train, but the train was cathedral length which I quickly decided was longer than I wanted. I was getting a bit discouraged, then she came along. . .

My niece Athena told me a few days ago that she’s getting married July 18th. . . of this year. Allow me to put this in perspective for you. She (and I, as her MOH) have three weeks to coordinate a venue, flowers, attire for the bridal party & parents of bride and groom, music, photographer, cake, food, and a bridal shower. Seems a bit overwhelming, right?
Actually, it’s not too bad.
