Being the diy bride that I am aspiring to be, I realize that it will not be as "easy" as I assume. I know that I'll need help, probably crazy tons of it. No no, I'm not stressing already...I swear. I actually think that it could be really fun to decorate and get things set up with my friends and family. There are a zillion things to accomplish that day: make bouquets and flower arrangements, hanging lights and pom poms or lanterns, set up the centerpieces, light candles, do the mantle, cake table, heirloom pictures, isle decorations...and all those other things that I haven't even thought about yet.
My wish is that my friends WANT to help! That people jump in and take part in creating the celebration with us. My sister keeps telling me, "yea right, you are going to be getting ready all morning you won't have time to decorate!" I guess this could be true...I dunno. It just sounds like it would be memorable to spend a couple of hours with my buddies being crafty.
I have such talented folks in my life, if they help me, our celebration will be even more fantastic than I can imagine. Plus, I think it sounds like homespun fun. Hey. A girl can wish.
