Too simple? by Andrea

Is there such a thing as being "too simple" when it comes to a wedding?

I'm really pleased with the way things are going with our planning...but I almost feel like I'm oversimplifying everything. I've always had a fear of becoming a Bridezilla, so I think I tried to combat that by making things super simple. I apply that same logic to my personality too. I never wanted to be perceived as a high-maintenance chick, so I end up wearing little to no makeup, ponytails with a super quick 15 minute morning routine. I do clean up nicely when I do decide to put the effot in, but that's only for special occasions or if I happen to feel motivated in the morning after my 5 minute shower!

I like that there's very little stress involved in this wedding, but I sometimes wonder if it wouldn't hurt to have just a few more details added in for fun. But then again, I've never heard of a bride looking back on her wedding and think "Gee, if I could do it all over again, I would have been a high-maintenance Bridezilla." Usually I hear about the psycho brides going back and apologizing to the bridal party for the insanity, just trying to salvage their friendships. So now I'm actually a little bit bored. Everything is so low key, and we started planning so far in advance, that now we're way ahead of the game and I've got nothing to do. Everyone keeps telling me to enjoy the down time, but I'd rather be busy than bored....it helps the time pass faster. And like I mentioned in a previous blog post, I'm ready for cake NOW. Andrea
