If you could get married anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Would you choose a destination wedding, in the mountains, at a church, in a garden, or at a beach? Do you want a big wedding, small wedding, or do you want to elope? I think we all have a vision of what our dream wedding would like. When I began planning my wedding, what I didn't realize was how torn I was going to be. I knew what I envisioned for our day, but I had several other people also telling me how our day should go or what it should look like. What do you do when people that you absolutely love are pulling you in so many different directions?
If you are going through this struggle, I understand how you are feeling. I think what helped me was realizing that I cannot please everyone. When I let go of others expectations, I began feeling more peace. Its 100% okay wanting to please others, but whats not okay is allowing yourself to give into the stress of wanting to please everyone. I realized that while others may have given me unwanted opinions, they were doing it with a helpful heart. My advice is to be open with everyone during your planning process, but to also show others and yourself so much grace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Planning weddings are fun! They are also stressful and overwhelming. Just remember, that while all the pretty details are great, the most important part of your wedding is celebrating your marriage. Above everything else, starting your marriage on a great foundation is the MOST important part. When things get stressful, and oh they will, take a step back, go on a run, eat some chocolate, laugh and most importantly, take time to go on a date with your love and reflect back on the very beginning of your love story and remember why you’re getting married ❤️
I loved these @showmeyourmumu
bridesmaid dresses that Rachel chose for her outdoor summer estate wedding. These girls were so fun to work with! ✨
The varying silhouettes and loose drape of their dresses looked formal and put together for the wedding, but also allowed the girls to be comfortable and casual dancing the night away.
When choosing your bridesmaid dresses, you should consider your vision, designs, atmosphere, style of wedding, seasonality, and all other circumstances to make sure your bridesmaids look and feel the part🥂
