In the mess of wedding planning, I know that some of us get caught up and forget about what is truly important in life. Yes, the weddings that we are planning are important. But don't forget about why we are planning this wedding in the first place. It is to bring together all of the people we love to help us celebrate the joining of two people.
Don't let dresses or invitations or bridal showers get in the way of friendships or families. After all, you never know how much time you have on this earth. You can't predict when something like this is going to happen:
Be thankful for all that you have. Remember what is really important. Remember to enjoy life and tell the people you care about that you love them. You never know if you'll have another chance. And keep those in Japan and the areas affected by the tsunamis afterwards in your thoughts and prayers.
