Keep Calm and Carry On

I like watching a lot of wedding shows and reading a lot of bride's blogs about their journey up to their wedding day. I know that a lot of brides get stressed about money,the little details, changing their minds about decorations, and the list goes on. However, I noticed that the common theme throughout watching the shows and listening to brides is that...they CAN'T WAIT until the day is over! I find that very sad because you should be excited about marrying your true love. If you feel like you are up to your elbows on budgets, to do lists, vendors, decorating and all the other details....get help! Especially if you are a DIY bride, enlist help from your bridal party, families and friends!

Have your mom or mother-in-law whip up treats such as cupcakes for a cupcake bar, edible favors for your guests, or even your wedding cake if they are up to the challenge! They would be delighted to do something special and you know that it will be filled with love!
Have all your bridesmaids get together to have a DIY floral arranging party for your centerpieces. It would be interesting to see the different styles. =)
 Have a handyman around? How about building a one of a kind backdrop or signs for your ceremony, reception or centerpieces!

Some (or should I say most) grooms believe the best thing to do is stay out of your way and show up for the wedding to say "I do." Some brides might actually like that idea, but how about doing something together? If you don't want your fiance to moan and groan when you approach him, how about saying it would be a special project to do together for your special day? You could design your own invitations or make your own "bride and groom sign" like below and pretty much anything else. =)

Also, if you have a vision in mind for your wedding, stick to it. Your family and friends can give you advice on what would help but it might make you more confused and frustrated.

Next time you feel blue...

Keep calm and carry on. =)
