Pale white-rimmed, glass lantern
Hanging over aqua-blue seas
Smooth, blush-colored candle,
Unlit, awaiting it’s potential
Accompanied by the soft, full bloom
Of iridescent-colored petals
Waiting for me.
White lace that clings and shapes
Diamonds that settle comfortably
Atop of collarbones
White, heeled shoes that clack
Excitedly against tiled floor
Pacing, anxiously awaiting
The arrival of guests.
Last weekend was my bridal shower and everything felt like a wonderful dream. I was beyond blessed by my family and friends. The decorations were lovely, the games a blast, the food delicious, the gifts generous, and the company priceless. I hope to always remember it as it was, a wonderful day.
My best advice to any bride out there who is dealing with the stress: be sure to put aside your expectations on big days and simply focus on being in the moment to enjoy it. Things will always go differently than we planned (but that is not always a bad thing). If you are anything like me, you will plan and plan and plan and plan and plan. There’s nothing wrong with being a planner, just remember that on that day to let go of your plans and let it be. With that attitude, I was able to truly and entirely enjoy my Bridal Shower completely, even when things did not go exactly according to plan.
