Danny and I have the worst luck with anniversary photos. This picture isn't the best quality but at least it's better than last year's blurred selfie. I started the week with marriage advice and will end it with wedding advice.
It's your day, do what makes you happy: During the planning process it may seem that this is the most important thing to happen to everyone in your inner circle but it's not. Our wedding theme was television, the reception was in the afternoon, we played Motown music exclusively and limited our guest list. This caused some problems during our year of planning but after the wedding was over no one said a word and I can happily look back on our big day.
Photography is important but not everything: I was a laid back bride but one thing that stressed me out was pictures. I didn't know how we would have time to do them and had a huge list of grouping/poses I wanted. The reality is you don't look at a wedding album often and there are only so many pictures you can hang in your house. I have over a hundred pictures but only use a handful. I'm glad we have the memories but I spent more energy worrying about it than was necessary.
Enjoy the day because time flies: Since we got married in the afternoon our wedding day was over by 5:00 p.m. but even our friends who have evening receptions comment on how quickly it ends. Remember to relish in every minute because it's over way too soon.
On to the weekend. Today I'm going to an all day Live, Work Detroit event put on by D:Hive, I have no idea what to expect and I'm admittedly nervous. Tomorrow, is Danny's early birthday celebration. It's beer fest at Eastern Market and he'll be enjoying himself with a group of friends. I'm the DD and will spend part of the festivities at the DIA. After the festival we will head to Greektown for dinner and dessert. Hopefully our downtown adventures end at a reasonable hour because the Lions play at 9:00 a.m. Sunday. The weekend will conclude with a trip to the Eastside with Mom for a show at Granny's church.
P.S. This is what I thought about during our wedding Mass :)
