It's gone around and around...

and then the truth came and beat me over the head.

I had much appreciation when I first saw that posting 2000 dollar wedding from the girl who rants and rants about what she doesn't want. And then I forgot about if for the most part, plugging away and now nearly halting the planning process, because I'm stuck. Then OffBeat bride made a point that slapped me across the face. I have cast off much of the typical wedding tradition both because I find it boring, antiquated, unoriginal, impersonal, etc, and because it's expensive, impractical, and on both accounts, not me at all. I do look at a lot of things I don't like, but mainly because these things are right in front of me: all those beautiful weddings on snippet & ink are rarely what I want, but I dig for inspiration nonetheless, because at least those weddings aren't as poofy, pink or pretty pretty princess as... well everything else.

The problem is, I have picked my dress, my date, my flowers, my venue and so narrowed down food to the venue options, and begun wandering off onto the little extraneous things. I am still against favors, but now I'm seeing why they've become so popular -- they are distracting and easy. If I could just keep focusing on those stupid details, I can procrastinate thinking about the important bits, you know, the creative, meaningful, part where I marry G, the man I love.

I was just reading this post on Tea and Whimsy when she nutshelled that it was time to be creative, and it's true. It's time for the hard work to begin.
