Creative Overhaul Part 1

According to my preview post, I think I'm doing ok...I've updated you on the honeymoon (Mr. P FINALLY applied for his passport yesterday! YES!) and given you some insight to a couple DIY projects: the slideshow and something or other in memory of Mr. P's mama.

BUT, I know the biggest thing has to be the redesign, redirection, creative overhaul of the wedding! Hello?! That's HUGE.

Here's what went down:
A couple of weeks ago I was having a minor panic attack to Mr. P about how I was now uncomfortable with what the florist and I came up with for the centerpieces and that I didn't know how to properly incorporate and execute this peacock theme. And then, my whole wedding world came shattering down: Mr. P gave an inkling to the fact that he wasn't a fan in the first place. Ugh! How could he have waited SO long to tell me?! My feeling were not hurt, I was just having trouble breathing wondering HOW in the world I would pull off a completely new idea having already had trouble deciding on one in the first place. He tried to cover it up by saying that he just didn't know how I was going to do it, but I knew. I totally knew.

We spent an hour or two browsing through Knot photos and Google Image searches to see how we could pull it off to our liking. It wasn't working.

The next day, I talked to my mom about it, but I was still struggling and still bummed out. 4 months and we don't know what the wedding is going to look like now? AHH!

The day after that, I finally had an epiphany. I am almost embarassed to admit the simplicity of it all...but I will. I realized that instead of basing what the wedding would look like off of what we already had (dresses, venues, etc.) that I would think about what I truly LOVE and find a way to incorporate everything together.


DUH! How was I letting the items I had already chosen dictate EVERYTHING?? Ugh, the absurdity of it all. See, wasn't that ridiculously simple?

I think it is important to go with your gut and it sounds like that is what you did. I'm anxious to hear what the new game plan is as I'm sure it will be just beautiful.

I can't wait to see it all come together! I'm sure it'll be fabulous. I know you want it to be a "surprise", but I'm a bridesmaid and should be privy to everything that's going on, in my very humble opinion ;)
