I didn’t want my wedding to be stressful… and it really hasn’t. Well yeah it has. But at first it wasn’t. To be honest, I couldn’t care less about the food… the invitations… the sign in book… etc. My mom did the invites, I just basically saw them and said,”oh that looks great!” (I am so lucky I had my parents to take the reigns) David and I at first wanted to make our own food and our own cake… luckily my parents talked us out of that.. I would have been stressed out of my brains right now if we had ended up doing that. I am still laughing at the idea… it seemed so good and easy at the time. Parents know best.
I only cared about David and I being happy, my dress, the flowers at the wedding, the photos, and weirdly.. my cake topper. That probably sounds like just about everything haha, but any of you who have planned a wedding know that is just not true.
I have a very distinct idea of how I want my flowers at the wedding… if flowers weren’t so expensive I would have quadruple what I am already having and my whole reception would look like a fairly land…. or something. I am praying it all turns out how I am picturing it in my head. I also had an exact idea in my head of how I wanted my dress, so I got it custom made and I love it. And I reeeealllly wanted elephant cake toppers… the only ones out there are super expensive, so David and I went and got clay and molded them one night and let me say, they are adorable and just what I wanted.
I keep randomly getting caught up in all the madness and small details that I get all stressed out. I need to remember to just chill out and enjoy this time because it is only going to happen once. And at the end of the day, if it is pouring snow, freezing cold, my flowers are hideous, my curls go flat, my make up gets smudged, or whatever…. we will still be Mr. and Mrs. David Clark en route to the Bahamas.
here is your one and only sneak peak 🙂 my wedding pics part 1 (there will probably be 4 parts haha) will be posted at 8:30 this friday!
A picture of a screen is all you get today! Look Friday night to see more 🙂

  1. I happened upon this post and SO needed it! I am in the process of planning my own wedding, and keep feeling like I should be doing more. But then I keep coming back to the thought that this special day is for me and my fiance — it doesn’t have to be some grand party. Thanks for the advice 🙂

  3. I was wondering the same as Melissa… did you get all ready exactly as if it was your wedding day, for the photos ahead of time? I hadn’t heard of that either…

  4. Oh my gosh I just discovered your blog randomly, & I love it! You are not only stunning, but hilarious, I’m cracking up. Congratulations on your wedding this week!!

  5. I recently got into blogging and found your blog and just might have gone through all your posts in a day…such an amazing blog (-: I am excited to see your wedding pictures! Congratulations!

  6. I’m confused, so you already got married? or did you do all the photos a few weeks before? if you did them a few weeks before, did you at least do a “first look” portion of the shoot since he’s not seeing you for the first time in your dress the day of the wedding? I’ve never heard of doing the shoot weeks before the wedding….
