Yesterday afternoon I was chatting with a bride during her consultation with me and we were discussing the changes that have happened to weddings since we were young, or even since our parents got married. We both agreed that the customization of weddings nowadays is the best part. Everything is so personalized. You don’t need a blueprint for your wedding- it’s all about you and your partner!
Over the years I’ve spoken to many clients and some of them fully embrace this, while others, feeling societal pressure or pressure from other sources, consider doing things they really aren’t interested in or comfortable with. I’m here to tell you - DO YOU!
You don’t want to cut the cake? Don’t do it! You want to skip introductions to your reception- totally fine! You want to get married in an aquarium? Find the venue of your aquatic dreams! You want to wear a red satin gown instead of a white or champagne dress? Call me so I can take some gorgeous photographs of you in that incredible dress! ;)
There are so many amazing things you can do for your wedding day that expresses you and your partner- explore and check them out!
On the flip side- dig the traditional white or champagne dress? You’ve got plenty of options that still make it you. You want to boogie on in to your reception with a fabulous introduction from the DJ? DO IT! At the end of the day, you hold the reigns, now get out there and have the wedding of your dreams- whether it’s big or small, all the planning and touches you put into it will make it YOU.
