A little while ago I wrote a blog called On Getting Married about the emotions that are involved with getting married. It was a bit clinical and dry but informative none the less (in my opinion, at least). Below is a quote that kind of says the same thing I said, but with a lot more passion and recent experience. 

Written as the final post # 687 on the blog "a $10,000 wedding" it gives some great perspective on the emotional roller coaster ride that is planning a wedding:

"weddings, no matter how you slice it and dice it, will tug at your heart strings and push your buttons. you're emotional because you're thinking about your families and what this shabang will mean for them, you're emotional because you're excited about the new family you're about to build, you're emotional because all of your besties are there to support you, you're emotional because there's a lot to do and you're kind of like just stressed the eff out, you're emotional because you find yourself walking that fine line between keeping everyone happy and being true to yourself...

...you're emotional because you're committing to f.o.r.e.v.e.r with that one amazing person...and want the wedding to be that kind of perfect...

it's just one day. but it's significant, you know?

so amidst the flurry, should things ever get a little hairy or overwhelming, take a step back and remember what it's all about. (hint: it's not about cake flavors or wedding dresses.) "
