A note from the Editor

2022 Edition


This last year, I found myself hastily planning my own spring wedding. I learned a few things in the process: always accept help, be flexible, keep your eye on what’s important, and anything that goes wrong will soon be a funny story your family tells at holidays.

On my wedding day, my dress almost didn’t zip, one of the groomsmen was late, my maid of honor passed out during the rings exchange, and I forgot my vows at home. Any one of those things could have ruined the day for me, but I can honestly say that I wouldn’t change a single minute. Even though we paired our guest list down from 85 to 25 and we set our date just two months beforehand, it ended up being perfect.

However big or small, your wedding is going to come together. The seemingly insurmountable to-do lists will get shorter, I promise. The big day will come (you’ll have so much fun), and it’ll pass. Afterwards you’ll be married, and a few weeks later, on a sunny Saturday morning, you’ll wonder how you ever found time to fit in wedding planning on top of everything else.
