Bridezilla?

bridezilla

The idea of getting married always seemed so foreign to me.  I could never imagine meeting anyone I would want to spend the rest of my life with.  Shamefully, I admit that my attention span for individual people is limited.  I often can only do people in small doses at a time before I feel smothered and want to be alone.  For that reason, I’ve not given an actual wedding much attention, or at least not as enough as some of my friends that I grew up with.  I remember them talking about the dress, the shoes, the veil, the first dance song, with such passion it lit up their eyes.  Me?  I was more interested in reading.

When Jon first proposed to me, it took about a week before we even discussed anything about the wedding.  And then we immediately decided to employ Angel as our wedding planner, who has been a big help.  Our first meeting with Angel had me saying to her that she would have to do everything and I didn’t want to over-complicate any of it, she was the expert at weddings, not me.

Which is why it came as such a surprise to me a few weeks later that I found myself obsessing over fonts and hexadecimal colours for our wedding website.  And also how quickly I lose the funny when anyone tries to criticise something I think will be lovely for the wedding.  And especially when anyone doesn’t jump for joy and enthusiasm when we do something, like send out save the dates, or screenshots of snippets from the website.

Because, HELLO.  DO YOU PEOPLE NOT KNOW THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY OF OUR LIVES?
ARE WE NOT SPECIAL ENOUGH TO DROP EVERY LITTLE THING AND SCREAM EXCITEMENT FOR?
IS IT SO HARD TO JUST ABSOLUTELY LOVE EVERYTHING WE’RE PLANNING?
DO YOU NOT REALISE OURS IS THE ONLY WEDDING THAT MATTERS, EVER?

I mean, Jon and I have the absolute best taste in all things wedding.  It will obviously be the most unique, most fun, most entertaining, most participation-driven wedding of all weddings in the history of ever. If everyone could just get on board and realise all of the above, that would be great.

And, Jon, if you could stop googling “running medal hangers” and get back to work on the website, that would be great also.

I wish I could claim that all of the above is a parody. Sadly, it is not. Wedding fever has hit, hard. I’m trying my best to keep it cool, pretend it’s all good, act like I’m not dreaming about it every night, but it’s so difficult! I can only beg forgiveness from those around me, apologise to the ones I’m driving crazy, thank the others who are supporting me anyway and thank the lord Zod that this will all be over in 11 weeks.

    LOL! I did all my ‘Zilla moments during pregnancy. There was at least one major “Bilbo incident”, as David likes to call them, during each one, where I totally lost my shit and scared the crap out of everyone within a 1km radius.
    You’re in excellent hands with Angel and I’m sure your wedding is going to rock so very, very hard! 🙂

    Don’t wish away the time because it’ll all be over before you know it (and before you’re ready for it to be). Enjoy the craziness and the excitement and the planning. xx
