My wedding is coming up so quickly! I’ve been counting down the days for over a year and it’s already here! We are getting married in Hawaii on the 28th. I need help ladies! Lots of weird emotions and anxiety that wasn’t there before….
Went in for a fitting for my dress today and was so disappointed 🙁 the first time I tried it on I loved it so much but ever since it was ordered and arrived I’ve hated it each time I put it on. It doesn’t fit quite like it did with the clips in the back 🙁 it still has alterations needed but I’m feeling so bummed about it. Ughh
I’m disappointed in myself for not getting in shape 6 months ago
I had planned this tiny little easy wedding no flowers, no music, no after party and I was fine with it but now I find myself stressing about it and wondering what people are going to think without these things… I know it doesn’t matter what they think but it’s still in the back of my mind.
advice on the music issue? Would it be weird to you to be at a wedding on the beach and the bride not walk down the isle to music? Is it necessary?
What do I do with my hands now that I’ve chosen not to have flowers??
Crazy dumb issues i know but now I can’t seem to calm my worries… help!

I’d have music of some sort, – doesn’t matter there is no aisle , just on an Ipod or something.
And maybe a single flower or two in your hands , not a bouquet or anything.

The no flowers I think is doable, but I think it might be a little bit of “awkward silence” with no music.

I actually think if you’re getting married on the beach the no music thing wouldn’t be so weird. Beaches are pretty loud places in my experience, what with waves crashing and all… unless it’s one of those super calm beaches, I bet it will be fine.
As for the no flowers thing, is someone walking you down the aisle? If so that would tie up at least one arm and probably won’t look empty. If you’re coming down the aisle by yourself though it may look a bit odd.

My dad will be walking me down the isle. I just don’t know what I’ll do with my other hand lol
I thought the same with the loud beach but not knowing exactly how it will sound/look prior is so stressful ha… it seems like it would be an awkward silence but the beach is not exactly silent…I just don’t know *sighhh*

You could easily do ipod music if you wanted, doesnt have to be too fancy.
For your hands, If you have your arm hooked with your dad, your other arm could rest your other hand there too (youd be the old lady in this https://thumb7.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/2465024/344337719/stock-photo-teenage-girl-helping-senior-woman-to-carry-shopping-344337719.jpg)
You could hold something small, you could always pick up a bouquet from the market the day before, it doesnt have to be a whole professional BRIDAL bouquet. You could hold a parisol, a clutch (maybe with a fancy pen that you’ll sign your papers with), a lantern, a candle, a balloon, heck you could bring a bottle of champagne down the aisle and pour it when you get to the altar.
The ONLY reason I’m having a bouquet is because I’m worried about the same thing haha. I’m already awkward, so holding something will distract my hands.

Ultimately, people are there to see you get married. Most of them are going to be stoked to get a trip to paradise in the bargain. Just take some deep breaths.
You can get a pretty good quality bluetooth speaker for around $30. Download something to your phone and have one of the guests start the music when you get to the top of the aisle. Personally, I’d feel like something important was missing if there wasn’t some music for the processional. If you’re doing a Hawaii beach wedding, I’d reccomend this:
As far as your hands, if you are being walked down the aisle, you don’t need to do anything with them. Link arms with your dad and let the other hand stay relaxed. However, if you decide you HAVE to have something, I hear they have some pretty amazing flowers in Hawaii. 😉 Just find a local florist or farmers market and get a handful of something pretty.
