"Getting married is the boldest and most idealistic thing that most of us will ever do."

Marrying Israel will be the greatest moment of my life. I'll be marrying my best friend, my love, my life. Saying yes to him was the easiest decision I ever had to make in my life. There has never been a moment since I met Israel where I questioned our relationship and if it was worth fighting for every step of the way. He is worth fighting for - always. I love him more than words can even explain which makes marrying him the easiest part of this whole wedding!
For me, having a big wedding was never really what I wanted. I don't care to please people, out do other people
I am lucky as well to have a few select people who have been very caring along and helpful along the way. Israel's parents and mine have been supportive - financially and emotionally and have helped take a lot off my plate. The few who have been there to listen to me bitch and have been holding my hand while I want to cry a little bit (maybe even punch someone?), thank you.
Things get tough when planning a wedding. You have to keep on top of EVERYTHING - outfits for the wedding party (fittings, when they should buy it, different stores), keeping up with our guest list (as our wedding is destination and we get so many people say "YEAH! I'LL DEFINITELY BE THERE!" only to hear "Yeah, no ... I can't come". I'm not saying they have to come, but it's just hard to keep up with our guest list and having to plan our wedding around how many people are coming), keeping in touch with our wedding coordinator in Punta Cana and my list can go on....
Stress, angry, unreliable-ness. It all gets to me. It makes me more bitter than I should be sometimes. But thanks to Israel, he always brings me back back down when I'm in those kind of moods. He's definitely my anchor and he knows how to calm me down. I just don't want to seem like bride-zilla...
Only 7 more months to worry and then we'll be home free from this!
