I have a wedding coming up in a couple of weeks with a bride to be that I'll call Ms. T. We've been working together for about 13 months and have planned virtually every aspect of the day together. We email, I'd say, at LEAST 10 times a day.
I woke up this morning and while she may not have been the VERY first thought that came to my mind, she was certainly the third or the fourth. I hadn't even wiped the crusties out of my eyes when I started thinking about her favors and suddenly it occurred to me that in a couple of weeks we aren't going to talk anymore. After more than a year of thinking of this person every day, multiple times a day, and vice versa, suddenly, well, we won't.
I started to miss her. I'm sure that we will email or chat sometimes, and maybe even get together, but truth be told, our relationship won't be the same....
Obviously, this happens all the time. Brides get married and then there is no reason for them to speak to their wedding planner everyday. (I mean, if they did it would be weird and we wouldn't get much done in the office) But for some reason today, it just hit me what a WEIRD aspect of our job that is...... We're so close with our brides for such a long time and we're at this huge event in their lives and then, well, it just changes.
I'm having separation anxiety!!!
