I See, I See by Meg Keene I think I have discovered the why and wherefore of the atrocious bridal to-do list. Five weeks out, my hands are largely free of tasks, as we have all but finished our list (Type-A alert). I’ve noticed that my newly free hands tend to start wringing themselves. It’s not that I’m nervous about the wedding, per say, or about our marriage. Its that now I have time to think about the vast unknown (what does a wedding feel like when youâ€™re a bride?) and the way our lives will never be the same after we marry (together five years or no). I have time to think about my emotions. I think this is why favors were created, actually, as a monumental distraction from the truth.
