After almost two and half years of marriage I have learned so much about myself. We had a very short engagement (4.5 months) and I had never been the girl who thought a lot about her wedding. Now I am wishing I had asked for more help with planning. I have doubts my dress looked good, I didn’t do a run through on my hair before the wedding and I did my own makeup … I also don’t have my dress anymore. I am hoping other people have comforting words or encouragement for me as I am struggling. I am sad I didn’t know how to ask for help. Anyone else have a similar story? I just want some affirmation.

When I saw our wedding pics, I was kind of bummed. My dress was sliding down, and it showed. The tags are showing, the top of my bra is showing, and to top it off, I was seriously bloated and it showed in the photos. It took me a few weeks to get over them, but as I showed them to friends and family, they all seemed to really love them. So I wondered what they saw, that I couldn’t see. So, I stepped back, and tried to look at them objectively. That’s when I saw it…
My dress was sliding off, but I was laughing. My tags were showing, but I was crying tears of joy. I was totally bloated, but I was giddy with excitement. Instead of wishing that things went perfectly, I realized that they did. We were happy, emotional, and excited about spending the rest of our lives together. We didn’t get picture perferct, magazine photos, we got real-life, real-wedding photos, that captured real moments.
Our day wasn’t perfect, but it was, indeed, a perfect day, and our photographers captured it beautifully. 🙂
