Stuck in a Planning Rut Sort-Of

  |   By Alison Westlake

So here we are. I'm not going to say we're stuck in a planning rut however, we can't really move forward until certain things are finalized. With Christmas around the corner progress has slowed as vendors are gearing up for winter weddings and events, so meetings with caterers and such are postponed until January. I'm surprisingly calm about it though, perhaps it's because there is still eight months between us and our wedding day, but it's coming fast and I predict a very stressful couple of months before the big day. But isn't that how it always goes? Isn't that how most of us work best, with a deadline? The home stretch is pivotal and it's where most of the action takes place. I don't want it to happen like this, I'd prefer to head towards the finish line cool, calm and hydrated. In my defense I have been doing a lot inside this incredibly imaginative head of mine. I can almost visualize the entire wedding day from start to finish, and isn't that what they say, "If you can dream it you can do it?"

No.

Stuck in a Planning Rut Sort-Of

Well, I'm "being the ball," "nothing but net." This is going to be a "slam dunk." Forgive the basketball references but sometimes you've got to put a little swagger in that step, and get your game face on. A little confidence can go a long way. I'm trying to make decisions with confidence and doing my very best to let go of my expectation for what the day should be. There are a million different ways to set a table but we have to decide on one way and we have to stick to it. I can rest knowing I've secured my florist at least. ;>  For now, I'm going to worry about Coriander Girl, eat some home made short bread, a cup of tea, and I'll worry about the rest come January 2nd.
