via yoganonymous: The wedding industry makes us feel like everything should be glossy and romantic.

But the reality is that the high-stakes stress of planning “a perfect wedding” can transform even the calmest yogi into bridezilla. As a highly-sensitive yoga teacher and introvert, I knew my wedding had the potential to drive me over the deep end.

Planning held the promise of fun and excitement, but quickly became tension-fraught as various family members (as well as my fiancé and myself) had dramatically different ideas about where the big day should take place. Once we survived securing a location, I found myself project-managing an endless to-do list involving vendors, save-the-dates, fittings, and budgets.
