Did you see the article featuring i-do Boutique in Eastsider magazine? Here’s my favorite excerpt:
Having recently tied the knot myself, I can finally testify to the sheer terror of planning an actual wedding. In the moments just before the ceremony I was an anxious wreck. Me, the self proclaimed Zen Bride, could not have been more panic stricken. The anticipation was dizzying and everyone around me, including my beloved team of helpers, appeared to be just as stunned and confused as I was. Despite my intense dislike for the bridezilla stereotype, I found myself barking at everyone around me to answer the bleepin’ phone, see who is at the bleepin’ door and call the bleepin’ groom’s party. (I’ll leave you to insert your own expletives.) My behavior was a tad mortifying, even to myself.
By the time I was ushered to the ceremony doors I couldn’t have been more grateful for the purposeful, calm countenance of my wedding coordinator. She coaxed me into place, fluffed my train just so, and gave me a final once over. She was my personal Zen Master. If it were not for her gentle hand guiding me in the direction of the isle, my racing thoughts would not have paused long enough to recognize the sound of my own wedding march. Everything was exactly as she promised, and when things did go wrong, which they inevitably do, she ran off to resolve the problem while I luxuriated, peacefully, in my special day. Had it not been for her, I might have hurt someone.
Like most brides and mothers involved in planning a wedding, the writer discovered it is hard to predict how you will react to the pressures of the day. If you are looking for some peace of mind on the wedding day or would simply like to bring some order to the chaos you may be feeling as the big day approaches – please stop in and see the Zen Masters at i-do Boutique. We even have Zilla pills in case of emergency!
P.S. We’re not kidding about the Zilla pills. These novelty white peppermints bring light-hearted humor to stressful wedding situations and are available at the boutique for $4.95 a tin.
