It’s funny how sometimes it’s the details that make all the difference. It can be the small things that make or break a business relationship. It can be the small things that determine whether you’ll take a certain trip or not.
And sometimes the details aren’t that big of a deal. When I was in Belgium after college and getting ready to come back to the states and to so many unknowns – like where to live, getting a car, finding a JOB – a lady who has been so near and dear to me said that those were just details and God would work them out. And low and behold she was right. I could have stressed myself senseless with trying to figure those things out before I got home, but there was no point in it because there wasn’t much I could do from across the ocean. Well, there was, but at the time I didn’t know where to start so I just let it be until I got home and had nothing else to do than to look for those things I needed. And it was THE best decision. Not worrying about those details when I still needed to be present and focusing energy and effort into my life in Brussels was what was important at the time. And when I got home… I was able to live with my mom for a month, a little while into that month God provided me with a car, and while it wasn’t my life’s ambition, He also provided a job hostessing at California Dreaming.
When it comes to wedding details, it’s sometimes easier and less stressful to let an overall theme fill in for the details. With our wedding, I was trying so hard to have SO many details that I about drove myself (and everyone around me) crazy. I ended up having to let some of them go as time got closer and I realized some things just weren’t going to happen. But you know what? It was ok!! One thing that stuck out to me at Davis and Matt’s wedding last weekend was how she used daisies as here theme but also for the details. Daisies were EVERYWHERE! Did she have other details? Yes! And it was simple and beautiful. And I can’t wait to show you more of those tomorrow in their wedding blog. But I just wanted to encourage those brides out there who have been scouring Pinterest for weeks and months for those adorable DIY (Do It Yourself) ideas and details that you feel like you can’t live without… you don’t have to do every cute idea you find! Don’t make the same mistake I did and find 15 DIY projects that will take up more of your time than is actually worth it. I know Pinterest is addicting… trust me! But I just don’t want you to feel like your wedding has to be saturated with details! It will be beautiful regardless of whether you have details everywhere or just a few main pieces that decorate and create a fun and beautiful atmosphere.
And since every post is better with a picture… and since this post is about details… here’s another sneak peek of Davis and Matt’s wedding :-)
