I've been watching her.
I keep a close eye on her each day
I wonder how she handles it.
My co-worker who sits next to me is planning her own wedding. I watch her each day as she scrolls from website to website trying to find something. I never stopped her to ask her about the process. Is she stressed? Probably. Her wedding is next week. Planning a wedding is hard work.
I didn't plan mine so I really don't know. I DO know that people spend a great deal of time planning for this BIG DAY. I'm sure that she (like a lot of women) has always dreamed about what this day would bring. She's probably envisioned it all of her life. Unlike her fiance, she has planned for this day...this moment. This is it...the wedding day! Maybe I should let her in on a HUGE secret...
The wedding is only 23 minutes long!
Months, days, hours, and minutes of preparation for 23 minutes!
She may spend 10k, 15k, or 20k on this wedding that will only last 23 minutes.
Does she realize that these 23 minutes will come and go so fast? It'll be a blur to her.
My late, high school football coach used to always say "We must prepare for war in a time of peace." Translation...we must be prepare ourselves for the battle BEFORE we go to battle. So if that's the case...
Shouldn't she be spending most of her time at pre-marital counseling??? I'm just sayin'
