i think it depends on the person – i think mine went very smoothly and i couldnt be happier with the outcome – to me it was perfect!

but i’m also a fly by the seat of your pants kind of girl, i dont get worked up when things dont happen the way i expect – im pretty laid back so i dont think my expectations were anything crazy.

i could name a few things that were off – like still being at the MAC counter at 1:15 when i was supposed to be at the church at 1:30 – but i didnt let it get to me. and forgetting to cut one of the BM’s flowers (the stems were super long compared to everyone elses) i didnt even notice until i saw the pictures haha. but its all about perspective, you just cant get worked up about it – let it go and enjoy the day you know? it goes by so fast anyway.

my mom told me not to worry about anything because in the end there isnt anything i can do and its “all part of our story”. i think that helped ease any anxiety that i had. i planned for months and here we are, there is nothing i can do to keep things from going wrong. luckily nothing did, it was a beautiful day.

I would say that 99% went exactly as I had planned. The ONLY thing that wasn’t exact was the cake and we knew we were gambling there trusting the resort to do that.

I have to say that planning and good vendors go a LONG way! I am a super anal retentive planner though. I actually made a word document with a diagram of the layouts of the area, photos of every single thing and how they should be set up and gave it to our coordinator at our first meeting. It also helped that our coordinator was super freaking awesome. She told me I was the most detailed and oraganized person she had ever met.

@spoonoutmyheart: I feel ya with 8 weeks to go. I’m starting to get a bit uppity and realised I do just want everything to be perfect, I underestimated this feeling until now.

There was a point during my wedding day that I was literally speechless. Everything came together so beautifully, the weather was gorgeous, my friends and family were incredibly helpful and supportive, and I looked around in awe as I realized that the vision I had had in my head for all those months had come to life.

That’s not to say it was literally “perfect.” Some logistics didn’t quite happen exactly as I thought they would. Some details that I had labored over went unnoticed. A few things I thought were important didn’t happen. But seriously, it didn’t matter.

It made me recall a conversation I had with a friend about a week before the wedding. I had shared a lot of my planning with her, and she said, “Your wedding is going to be perfect!” I said, “Oh, I’m sure it won’t be perfect. Everyone tells you that something is sure to go wrong, no matter what.” She replied, “Well, that doesn’t mean it won’t be perfect!!”

She was right. 🙂 Have a wonderfully imperfect, perfect day!

We ended up with a whole “bloopers reel” on our wedding video.  But the wedding was still perfect.
