I feel silly even admitting this, but I had my first wedding planning mini-meltdown over the weekend . . . at Bed Bath and Beyond. Sad, I know. What kind of sadness or stress could possibly happen there? It's a wonderful world of bed sheets, gadgets, and decor! Unfortunately, it was also the location of my first stress-induced meltdown.
I’m kind of hoping someone reading this will know exactly what I’m talking about bc I’m sort of hoping to not be alone on this one . . .
There we were . . . browsing towels for our gift registry at Bed Bath and Beyond . . . where John was being his typical agreeable laid back self . . . and i'm presenting the options looking for his feedback. That's when it happened. I couldn't make ANOTHER decision. I just couldn't do it. From invitation fonts to color choices to what the heck are we going to do if it rains . . . I just couldn't stand to make another choice, even if it was something as simple as WHICH TOWELS TO REGISTER FOR.
The awesome thing about being the groom is . . . John gets to pretty much be kept out of the loop of 85% of the decision making because I know he frankly wouldn't care to have an opinion about most wedding related things. The bride, she has to choose choose choose choose and choose again. There are SO MANY decisions to make . . . so many choices . . . it’s a little overwhelming, but I’m a planner by nature . . . so until this point, it was easy peesy . . . everything was all good. I don't know what came over me at that moment, but choosing towel colors pushed me over the edge. I couldn't bare to choose. Really? I feel ridiculous even admitting this, but I got teary eyed. Pathetic, I know.
I was on decision making overload and had a mini-meltdown right there in the towel section.
I've since gotten my act together, made a few more lists, and completed our registry. John was helpful and did all of the scanning . . . and even made some executive decisions about towel colors and brands while I mentally recovered and laughed it off.
Thankfully, we both laughed it off. He knows I love all of the planning, but it's definitely A LOT to do, choose, and execute. I kind of can't wait for October 12. :) I'm going to be someone's wife! Haha, not just someone, actually the most laid back, go with the flow, awesome guy ever! Gosh, i'm thankful for his patience and love.
For what it's worth . . . we went with the purple & grey . . . also our wedding colors. :)
