Getting philosophical

Collecting wedding ideas is half the fun!

Does pinning, tweeting, or updating our status make us feel more present in the world? Does it give us a sense of ourselves as the center of our own universe? I struggle with these on-line activities  which I do, admittedly, love and am slightly addicted to. And here I am, after all, writing my blog.

When it comes to your wedding, by all means surf, pin, blog and facebook, but also think, feel, contemplate, and get ready to be in this big moment.

Collecting ideas for your wedding is fun and helps you sort through the myriad of choices we have in today overwhelming digital world. But you can’t taste a cake on-line, and you can’t choose an officiant without, at a minimum, speaking to her or him.

Preparing for a lifetime together is the other half.

And I hope you won’t approach this important day without talking about its true meaning with your true love. “Being in the moment’ is more than just a catch-phrase. It takes work and self-awareness. It is not easy, especially when there is anxiety. Being nervous is normal and natural, especially with something as important as your wedding. So give yourself permission to be worried and consciously work to breathe it all in, and enjoy this amazing milestone in your life.
