Tiny bits of random thoughts from Wife of 36 days — Scripting Happiness

Tiny bits of random thoughts from Wife of 36 days

Getting married and becoming a wife is a big deal in Scripting Happiness. If you’re wondering what life looks like 36 days after the big “W” day, here’s my take.

  1.  Planning a wedding turned out to be a mini test to see if we can work well as a team. Navigating two sets of families, friends, taking everyone into consideration and keeping to a budget was tough.
  2. We took dance lessons and found to our surprise that we really enjoyed it. Now we have a hobby we can enjoy for years to come.
  3. I have no regret about not buying center pieces or not being color coordinated. I do wish we skipped the fancy bouquets and picked up flowers from the corner flower stand instead.
  4. It was decidedly the happiest day of my life. I find myself reliving all the precious happy moments in my head. (It’s like daydreaming but about something that’s already happened.)
  5. That $4,000 dress that I really wanted? It seems completely insane that I even struggled with that decision. It’s a dress that I would’ve worn for 5 hours. That’s $800/hr. I rented mine. No regrets there.
  6. All the details that I spent months obsessing over? It really didn’t matter that much. I wish someone would’ve told me this much much earlier.
  7. Just like life in general, s*** happens. Our caterer showed up an hour late and a man short. Yes, I was freaking out but it turned out okay. I’m glad we didn’t have to resort to Plan B and order pizza. But if it did happen, it would’ve made a good story.
  8. I love our wedding photos. I feel so happy whenever I see it. I hope it always bring me the same sense of joy.
  9. I still feel a bit tickled when I say “… my husband.” It seems so special each time I say it.
  10. Getting back to life post “W” and 10 days of honeymoon was harder than anticipated. It gave us much needed breathing space to contemplate what’s really important to us and prioritize.
Thanks to @MrsJenBardall for encouraging me to put my thoughts in writing!

It’s definitely a learning experience! You’ll have all kinds of great ideas for planning your 50th anniversary though. 🙂

All smart points!
Our ten-year anniversary is coming in December. I can’t even believe it.
Fun post!

Congrats on 10 years! Any words of wisdom for a newly minted wife?

Those are all very great points! I love that in taking dance classes, you found something new you love to do together! I still love looking through our wedding photos…in fact, my daughter and I looked through them the other day and I loved all the questions she was asking like, “Mommy, where did you get your earrings?” and “Do you still have your dress? Can I wear it when I get married?”

I love the photo that you posted at the top of this post….gorgeous!!!!


Jeena Cho August 15, 2011 at 7:03 pm

Aw. That’s so sweet about the wedding pictures. They are so precious. 🙂 How old is your daughter?

We spent $300 on a guy to walk us in with bagpipes at our wedding. He walked in, then walked us out. Total was like 1 minute maybe? It’s hilarious 18 years later how important that was to us.

Yup. Everything that you completely obsess over ends up not really mattering at the end. I’m just pissed no one told me this sooner!
