How to avoid being a bridezilla!! (What to do when your wedding isn't going exactly as planned)

My friend is getting married in two days. As an assertive and opinionated woman (why we love her) we expected her to have a mild case of briditis. As it turns out, she is the reason for writing this post. I have been amazed with her cool demeanor and humble gratitude towards all of us. And it can't be easy. She has been experiencing a little more than a few snafus. Her venue isn't properly hydrated, along with her flowers. Her dress was altered and still a bit too big, along with the men's tuxes. A little thing here, another there...It is enough to make my head spin and I am just one of the bridesmaids! But she has been quite the opposite of the bridezilla we might have assumed anyone to be after such events, going out of her way to make us comfortable while we all scramble to the finish line. It really shows me how much she is ready to spend the rest of her life being a wife to someone she is deeply in love with. I have watched this person change in such a short time that it blows my mind. I love her even more today than when I first knew she was my friend. I see many people in my life becoming more and more wonderful every day. I see the power of love overcoming failures, shortcomings, and issues big or small. Love is my God, my God is Love. And I am happy to witness this exchanging of God through vows, bows, pom-poms, feathers, fancy dresses and good times...I hope that my newly different, old love becomes like theirs...and I hope someday we will be able to share days like this together...but that's a different story ;)
