Napkin drama…

Posted on January 30, 2009. Filed under: reality |


… or lack thereof.

All along, my personal Bridezilla limit was getting all worked up making sure the napkins matched everything else.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I admire and respect the use of napkins to continue a color scheme or theme throughout a room, but I’m at peace with the fact that I’m neither inclined nor capable of doing that without angst.

And yet, twice now I’ve found myself stressing over what color napkins go best with yellow or light gray or poppy colored linens.  TWICE.  I’ve debated making them myself (all you need is a Serger, and I’ve wanted one for years), buying them on eBay, or having them embroidered with our monogram (sweet, right?).  I find myself driving and thinking, “Maybe light blue on gray?  Wait, that might be too boring.”

This is crazy.

Therefore, I am making an executive decision.  We will be using regular disposable paper napkins.  And they might not even be color-coordinated.

There, I said it.  There comes a time in a bride’s life when she just has to put her foot down and decide that she is not going to spend another minute worrying about it.  I’ll spend that time working on our ceremony or hugging my husband-to-be or petting my cats.  Heck, I might even train a dog to do a trick.

Are you horrified?

    I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt (and divorce papers) to prove it. Here I am again, pledging my life to my (new) love with eyes wide open (and heart racing) knowing full well how emotionally traumatic this can end… and doing it anyway.
