“I didn’t ever dream of my wedding.” ” I don’t want to ‘feel like a princess for a day’.” “I don’t have a theme for my wedding day. I didn’t know weddings had themes. Do we need a theme?”
These are all such common things I hear during a consultation. And all of which are totally okay.
I dreamt of being a wedding planner, but I never dreamt of my own wedding. I dreamt of the guy I’d meet and what my life would look like but never the gown I’d wear. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with dreaming of your wedding day your entire life, not everyone feels that way. Some people might not have ever even imagined getting married. And then love happened.
Lately I’ve noticed so many couples feeling apprehensive about their wedding. “We don’t have a whole lot to spend.” “Our engagement story isn’t anything special.” “We don’t really want a glamorous wedding.” I wish that every couple realized that love is beautiful and perfect in every form. When it’s true to who you are as a couple, no other stereotype matters.
You don’t have to wear a ball gown on your wedding day to feel beautiful. You don’t have to pick a “theme” to have decor. You don’t have had dreamt of your wedding your entire life for it to be special.
It’s time to stop following everyone else’s rules and let your wedding be your own kind of beautiful.
