So choose what fits you and your fiancé and go with the flow. Enjoy planning! Pick the dress that suits your personality (says the girl who went through 3 dresses actually brought home!) Choose the season you feel is perfect or will make you the happiest like we did today!! Do NOT let anyone plan your wedding for you or take things too personal. When it comes down to it all,the wedding should reflect both of your styles! You are marrying the love of your life,man or woman:) If you do have absolutely a badddd case of dress regret,get one that makes your body/face/heart glow!!! Trust me!!! And that is it for now 🙂 I’m a happy Spring 2014 bride to be with a wonderful, understanding me when I’m “wedding crazy” man and the dress of my dreams/season too!

LOVE this post! So many brides have an issue with trying to make their wedding “worthy” of weddings of today. Shows like Four Weddings and Say Yes to the Dress have set such a standard and makes people feel guilty if they can’t afford a $50,000 wedding.
It’s so common these days to forget the wedding is all about YOU TWO! Not what other people think! We are having a two hour dessert reception on a Sunday afternoon with no alcohol, no groomsmen, and no DJ. People thought it was a totally weird idea, but it’s so us! All that matters is that you and your fiance are happy.
Thanks so much for this reminder! 🙂

@PacificMrs: you’re welcome!! I just have been there done that kinda crap lately. I got a lot of support and judgements at the same time for some things I’ve posted…especially dress drama lol. I got so wrapped up in planning I lost sight of the real reason why I was marrying my FI. So put it all on hold til about 2 months ago. Phew. So glad I’m back in the game lol. It’s been great so far!! Easy and fun! The WB has been my support though:) maybe I needed the reality of it all from here.

I feel it is too often forgotten that at the end of the day, all that truly matters is that you are married to the one you love. FI and I recently switched to a Friday wedding and as my FFIL was yelling at my FI about how we were being inconsiderate and rude to our guests, my FI looked at him and said “Dad. You had your day and the guests have had or will have theirs. Our wedding is about prettyinpink and I, not the guests. This is what we want so please respect our wishes.” Yet one more reason am crazy for him! He constantly reminds me that it isn’t about all the little details, but the fact that we will be starting our life as husband and wife and we need to be happy no matter what.
