I have two very big goals for the next year: graduate and get married. As luck would have it, both of these events will take place next December. Of course, I am excited to finish my undergrad and marry to the love of my life, but at the same time, the thought of planning a wedding while hurry to finish school a semester early is stressing me out.
I’m so sick of college… My first two years, I was hardcore and took eighteen hours a semester. I think the extra essays and tests are finally starting to catch up with me and I want out. Because I’m so close to being done, I’ve aimed to be done in three and a half years. That means I’m going to have to take several summer classes online, but my goal is to be DONE with my undergraduate degree by December.
Colby and I are planning our wedding for December 23, 2010. Why? Because our church is absolutely gorgeous at Christmas. It’s my absolute favorite time of year and I love Christmas decorations. Having a wedding right before the biggest holiday brings up it’s own difficulties, but I’m still very excited about our date.
I could drown in the details though. There are so many things that to decide between now and the big day. Between the tablecloths, photographer, China, and endless list of things that I have to decide I could very easily get stressed out.
My goal is to stay focused on the end result and not to worry about every little thing. Colby and I will be married. Our two hundred guests will have a fabulous time. In the end, it will not matter if absolutely everything was perfect.
Do you guys have any great wedding advice? What was your favorite part of your wedding? Did it go exactly as planned?
