I’m not even a week into my engagement and, I have a confession to make, I’ve been reading wedding blogs.
[[ducks in case of flying fruit]]
Okay, here’s the thing that bugs me about this.
1. I shouldn’t be ashamed for having dreamt of this! Hulky (yes, this is a legitimate nickname of his, and while I think I’ve referred to him by name here, I’ve still never asked if he’d prefer anonymity) and I spoke about getting married quite a ways back and agreed that we both wanted that, together. So, what’s wrong with a bit of dreaming? It’s not like I planned out the whole wedding on my own before we were even engaged. Even if I had, maybe that works for us and who cares what other people think of what I do (I do, but I try not to).
2. The blogs I’ve been reading have had some really helpful articles that have set some of my worries at ease before I even had them. Being someone prone to anxiety, that means worlds to me. I read the advice and think, “Man, I’m glad I read that, I know this is something that would have worried me!” Just in case that wasn’t clear and I needed to spell out the entire thought to you.
3. My writing style has evolved as a result (well, I think it has). I feel like I have a different approach in “speaking” to my audience. [[crickets chirp]]
And now, I share with you some of my favorite blogs. I fully intend to sign up for those that have resources and wed-sites (customizable sites that can be set up in lieu of invitations), but most require you have a wedding date, so first things first.
