Five weeks till the wedding and I’ve been planning, calculating, making, purchasing, and sweating quite profusely in the inferno that is my room. I didn’t think my to-do list would be so lengthy at one month prior, but the list keeps on expanding and my sanity and emotional stability is tested every day. Today I read an instruction manual for screen-printing and I might as well have been reading German; es machte überhaupt keinen Sinn (“it made no sense at all”).
Stressed, yes, but I’ve been trying to enjoy the process. It’s our very own wedding, and since he left the aesthetics to me, I have had complete freedom in choosing everything (most things), within the budget of course. But the truth is, working within the budget has been the most stressful part. Everything is money and money gives me headaches.
How do you compromise quality.
I found that the answer is research and creativity. You must research thousands of wedding blogs, narrow down from millions of options, choose a couple of options (which is difficult when there’s so many great ideas), calculate cost efficiency and total sums, then choose one option (or mix a couple), plan, purchase, and execute with creativity. My head swirls with ideas and procedures. Don’t be surprised if everything turns out haphazard. I decided at the very beginning, as a preference (and precautionary measure), that my theme would be “organic.” Organic is supposed to look haphazard, and I am trying my best to make haphazard look like a wedding.
Enough rambling about wedding planning, huh?
