I can't thank my mother enough for helping us to have our wedding at an inn that is handling nearly everything for us!! Our stress has been minimal in regards to wedding planning even though we only had three months to plan our wedding. And, one of those months we were still in Taiwan and one of those months we were busy spending time with each other, sightseeing, and meeting with family.
Also, our pre-marital counselor (a missionary in Taiwan) gave us a golden piece of advice. He told Lawrance to give me one specific set time each week to talk about wedding stuff with him, the rest of the time we were to work on continuing to build our relationship and prepare for marriage. We weren't supposed to discuss wedding stuff 24/7. It was golden advice. It was great for me, and, I think, it was good for him too.
So, I thought I'd share with you just exactly what our current mental states are:
You'd be amazed (well then again, if you know us IRL, maybe you wouldn't) at how many people have told us how loud our house is going to be--a place of fun and laughter and just sheer joy!! Of course, we hope we also have done the same thing with the wedding. We hope it is a fun, fun, time of joy and laughter . . . and an opportunity to glorify God because He is our everything, the reason for all the fun and laughter we share.
Our wedding is in two days . . . here we go!!
"Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us!
(Psalm 126:3 NLT)
