I'm getting married!
So why does happy feel so crazy?
It’s normal to feel moody and anxious.
Sad and scared.
To feel like your identity is in flux.
To focus on your fiance’s flaws.
To fight with your family.
To miss being single-girl-about-town.
To wear the Perfect Bride mask, when inside you’re twisty-turny.
It's not about the guy
It's about you
I get it.
"Planning a wedding was much harder than I expected.
From my discomfort with being the center of attention, to my parents' and in-laws' conflicting expectations, to the stress of making so many decisions, it brought up a well of complicated emotions.
But thanks to Allison, I was able to see what I was experiencing as normal, even healthy. She helped me understand it was OK to feel something other than complete joy, and see my wedding not as a romantic comedy fantasy, but as an important rite of passage for my own growth as a woman." -- J.M.
