Wedding and marriage

I think I'm still a wedding planning junkie, even after 5 years of being married. No, not enough to be a wedding planner, but enough to want to check out other people's weddings. I still love looking at how they gradually add elements -- themes, motiffs, ceremony venue, reception venue, bridal attire, wedding accessories and all the other elements to make a wedding their very own.

I've enjoyed the process of planning my wedding, and although my own wedding had its share of glitches, I'm happy with the way things went and I've held fond memories of the day when my husband and I vowed to share our lives together from then on.

The most important thing to remember is that it's all about marrying the person you love. All the other things are secondary. So no matter what your budget, no matter how many guest you have, the most important thing is that you're now going to be husband and wife.

When it comes down to it, I'd have married my husband even with less of the pomp and the glamor, although having all the extra touches (all within budget, of course!) and all the guests to witness our coming together certainly added an extra oomph.

So don't worry too much about having no or little of the "essentials" that are really extra. What's really essential is the two of you becoming one.
