Hi! Did you get engaged over the holidays? Are you already overwhelmed by friends, coworkers, and relatives you didn’t even know you had telling you that your wedding must be done a certain way, cost a certain amount per guest, have a theme and set of colors, look like a magazine, or include whatever tradition that person holds dear, lest it be a terrible wedding or not even a “real” wedding at all?
Let me ask you just two questions, and I promise I will put your mind at ease.
1. Did you pick the right person? This is the most important thing, so don’t f*ck it up.
2. Does your wedding day plan include exchanging vows and signing the appropriate documents with an officiant and witness(es) meeting the legal requirements of your local jurisdiction and, if applicable, the religious institution of your choice?
If you answered “yes” to both questions, then CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE DOING IT RIGHT!
Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.
