"Ever since I was a little girl I could close my eyes and tell you my " dream wedding". It would be romantic, soft, and intimate with a touch of glam. I never could have imagined that my dream wedding would become a reality, but that is exactly what happened. From the soft blush and cream flowers to the long flowing bridesmaid dresses and to my princess ballgown dress it couldn't have felt like more of a fairy-tale. As I walked down the aisle with my dad and I looked up and saw my prince I couldn't have been happier. That was the single best moment of my life. "Marry Me " by Train was being performed, everyone I loved was all together for the first time in my life and in that single moment the world stopped. Nothing else mattered. If I could freeze that moment in time I would in a heartbeat.
Lets be real. Every bride stresses out. I had been stalking Pinterest for months on end, envisioning this huge day in my life and worrying about how I was going to make it perfect . I played the day over and over in my head and thought about every single detail and wondered how I was going to pull it all off. I tried on more dresses than I can even count and thought to myself "maybe I just wont find "The Dress". But I did find " The dress" and in the end all the details came together perfectly .
At the end of that day all my husband and I really wanted was to have a "FUN" wedding, we wanted everyone to celebrate and to dance and thats exactly what happened. We all danced the night away. As we look back on the wedding day we cant help but smile because it was truly the wedding of our dreams and a day we will cherish forever.The fact that all of our loved ones traveled near and far to be there and celebrate with us was a feeling we will never ever forget." -Bride
Wedding Planning Advice: Enjoy every moment and really take in the " big day ". Every bride says this but it couldn't be more true. The day goes by so fast and all the little details that you are worried about you wont even notice, PROMISE :) Smile and take a look at everyone that is surrounding you, they took the time out of their day and their lives to be their with YOU because they love and care about you so much . Its a very special feeling and I have never felt more love in a room before than on the wedding day . Relax, breathe and take it all in and this will be one of the best days of your life . Remember that in the end its more important to make your wedding day about YOU and your significant other". Do what reflects you two as a couple and have fun with it. Laugh as things go wrong, and remember that you are creating lifelong memories as you go through the process. Smile as much as you can, wipe away the tears and embrace this next chapter in your life with open arms :)
