I loved our wedding. I truly did. There is nothing that I regret. Nothing that I wish I would have changed. We had the most beautiful weather, at the most beautiful location, with the most beautiful family and friends surrounding us.

But if I think about it honestly, it is not something I ever want to do again. I know, that's a good thing. I don't mean it in the sense that I hope I never get married again, because I've already got my perfect match, but I mean it in the way that I never will plan another wedding. Not for myself. Not for someone else. Never.

Wedding planning was stressful. It was expensive. Who wants to spend their hard earned money on bubbles or a silver knife you will only use once? I know I'm being a little ridiculous, but I think planning my own wedding has jaded me. If I turn to TLC and Say Yes to the Dress is on, I have to change it. Immediately. My heart starts racing, and I feel that at any moment my palms just might start sweating.

I know I'm only three months past my own wedding, and maybe this reaction will fade over time. I'm hoping that it does. Weddings are a beautiful reminder of why we all fell in the love in the first place and they cause us to hope that our love can always be new and fresh every day.
