Today, I am going to recount a personal incident on my blog because it reminded me that life is about the little moments you spend with people. And I’m not talking about those once in a lifetime moments which one
I totally mean myself of course might have spent endless days and nights obsessing over. I shall admit that I have been A PRISSY BITCH FUSSING OVER THE NEED for wedding to go so perfect that at times I find myself starting to lose self-control and start yelling at people over it.
I guess it's common that many brides-to-be feel that they need to ensure that their wedding day goes smoothly for that one day. And because of my obsession for perfection, it makes everything SOOOO SOOOO stressful for us. Just the other day, while I was slowly morphing into 'Bridezilla' for the 10,000,000th time, I suddenly started to laugh. The hubby was made confused by my sudden outburst of laughter too.
Weddings are celebrations meant for F.U.N so I learnt that to truly enjoy it, I must be willing to laugh it off even when there are mistakes.
I started laughing because I realised that even if something does go wrong on our wedding day, it’s not going to HAUNT us for the rest of our lives.
In fact, the mistakes and cock-ups would be the most memorable part. No one can seriously remember the parts that are so perfect.
Don’t let anyone, including yourself convince you that your wedding is the most important life moment. IT IS NOT! A wedding is the rainbow sprinkles on your ice cream. A wedding is the whipped cream in your frappe. A wedding is the celebration of a new love story. A wedding is not the foundation of a marriage but the party to celebrate the beginning of a new bond.
I truly am saddened that it’s becoming easier and easier for me to forget that life is all about those interpersonal details that make the foundation for an awesome relationship and a blissful marriage. It seems like as the world advances, the adverse effect on all of us is that we are spending less quality time with the very people we claim to love.
An interpersonal detail is taking time off to visit your grandfather, and having you over for an evening probably means more to him than you’ll ever know it did.
An interpersonal detail is that 5 minutes, you and your sweetheart spent laughing after that silly argument over how much you look like GODZILLA's BFF.
*okok I am totally talking about myself especially when I morph into bridezilla hahahahahahaha =p*
End of lesson 1
After laughing with the hubby, I told him as I looked him in the eye,"I don't want the wedding dinner/ wedding makan session / wedding get together liao, dear! I have always only wanted an ROM then "eloping" for my honeymoon just because I feel it is much more romantic this way. So instead of fussing over something that I don't even want, why don't we just opt for the honeymoon only?!"
Hubby hugged me tightly and whispered into my ear, "Baby, as long as it makes you happy."
***Maybe he totally heaved a sigh of relief after I said that. ahhahahahahhahah =p***
And so, it is decided that I will have my wedding photoshoot and then mini honeymoon this year and our proper honeymoon next year. =)))))
Very very very very happy that we are not holding the wedding dinner, which also means that NO MORE DIETING.... ahhahahahaha *joking*
