I’m an obsessive compulsive type. I often think that nobody knows how to stack the dishes just “right.” I take great pride in arranging the condiments in my fridge door in a way that makes perfect sense to me. I think of a wedding as an elaborate play that requires a skilled stage manager to ensure a successful show.
Lately, I’ve been neglecting the dishes, the condiments are lined up all willy nilly in the door, and I am focused — monomaniacally — on one thing. The show must go on.
I am the stage manager, the skillful coordinator, whatever title fits the bill for obsessing about my wedding and all the plans that go into making it a kick ass party for family and friends. This week’s obsession is finalizing the save-the-date cards and attempting to narrow down the many DIY decoration and favor ideas I like most (thanks to thebitchybride for a great how-to post that will save me lots of money on my flower budget).
I called my mom yesterday, and she told me she picked up a Martha Stewart wedding magazine to help me find ideas for DIY wedding decor and favors. Thanks, mom. You don’t have to encourage my obsessiveness, really. I’ve already been scouring Offbeat Bride and The Knot on a daily basis. What I need now are minions to help me make all this stuff, minions who have storage space to spare. Because I don’t have enough space to fit all of those nifty paper flowers.
