Letting Your Wedding Day Be An Adventure by Carina Mead

Even if you haven’t planned a destination wedding in Costa Rica or atop a mountain, your wedding day can still be an adventure like no other.

There is much to be said about rolling with the punches, so to speak. Will everything go according to plan on your wedding day? Certainly not. Will everything completely fall apart? Probably not. Could minor inconveniences totally ruin your day if you let them? Absolutely.

One way to go into your wedding day is with the mindset of detachment, or not expecting a specific outcome. That’s not to say you won’t get excited or hope that it is a beautiful day, because it will be beautiful regardless, but let your satisfaction and enjoyment of the day be because of things going exactly as they will, rather than going as planned.

I kept this in mind as our champagne bottles arrived completely shattered, as I had to cancel my nail appointment, as my beautiful flower crown I stayed up late making the night before the wedding wilted in the Summer heat, as I realized that my fiancé hadn’t communicated with the caterer about us needing her to do appetizers until I asked him about it the morning of the wedding, as I couldn’t find the lipgloss I purchased for the wedding day, and so on and so forth. If it sounds like everything completely fell apart on our wedding day, it did not. But if I focused on all of these little mishaps and almosts, I probably wouldn’t have been able to enjoy all of the precious moments surrounding them very much.
