Whether you’re having a micro wedding or a big huge wedding, it’s always good to plan ahead!
Man, it’s been a weird weather month. I know a ton of spring brides were VERY SAD to have their wedding plans altered. Who wouldn’t be sad, right? All that time and money, forfeited for Mother Nature’s wrath! What a B. That’s why it’s always suggested to have a backup plan!
I dunno about you, but I’m not very good at backup plans. I’m actually not that great at planning either. I have a day planner, but when my depression is at its peak, I definitely am not looking at my planner. My backup plan, when I have depression, IS TO GET EVERYTHING DONE WHEN I FEEL BETTER AGAIN. *nervous chuckle*
I look at people doing all these amazing things, starting huge companies, writing 72 books in a year, having successful podcasts and I’m over here, neuro-divergent and a bit of a mess. I’m not good at backup plans, because I sometimes don’t even have the energy to plan something in the first place. I know I’m not alone in this struggle, which is the only reason I’m sharing it. I believe mental health should no longer have a stigma.
And planning a wedding is a little bit like having manic depression or any other disorder (mostly). You’re going to have ups, you’re going to have downs. Things are going to go sideways and things are going to be amazing….all in the same day sometimes. I don’t have a depression planner, but you can certain have a wedding planner! Professional event planners make EVERYTHING BETTER. Totally worth the $$.
On that note, let me ironically show you a wedding that didn’t have a planner (they did have a venue coordinator) but by the graces of the gods, the horrific storm passed an hour before their ceremony and we got a tiny glimpse of sunshine too!
And this time, I loaded images backwards. Cause it’s kinda weird and fun. hah!
