When D proposed last August, it felt like I had all the time in the world to plan this wedding. I guess it always does when you first get engaged. Now, I have only one month left and my to-do list is very long. That is part of the reason why I have not posted in (gasp!) one month.
I am not stressed though. I have planned and catered a lot of events over the years and one thing I have learned – that is not about the food, the cocktails or the flower arrangements as much as it is about how you make people feel. I think people go over the top now trying to create the perfect wedding day. When all you really need is good music, the right lighting and the people you love together in one place to make your wedding memorable. So, I will have my iPod ready for back-up, make sure the lights are on a dimmer and feel happy knowing that all of my closest friends and family will be together for once (and perhaps only once) in my entire life to celebrate this very special moment in time with us. And no food, wedding favor or flower arrangment could top that.
PS. if you are going to serve wine, that better be good too!
