One Big Day
It dawned on me the other day when visiting a venue that ALL OF THIS is just for one day. Obviously the wedding itself has little to do with the future of our relationship since we’re pretty much a married couple already so in the end the wedding is just one big party that is over in a few hours.
I know this is a given, I always knew this but while trying to plan it everything started to really come into focus. All the little details are all just for this one day and I imagine it flies by faster than me on Route 2 trying to get home from work. No wonder so many people feel this is a pointless tradition because it’s a lot of work to go into something so fleeting.
I’m still excited to plan it, it’s just weird that some of the stuff I am planning I will actually miss out on. I probably won’t eat much of the food or have many drinks. I know I will miss out on the “cocktail hour” and will be so busy through it all I may miss just taking in the surroundings.
I can see how so many marriages don’t last far beyond the wedding, because maybe their relationship didn’t have the foundation before big hoopla.
Oh well, that’s how it works and eventually this whole concept will fly out of my mind as quickly as the not wanting to get married one did 😉
