some wedding truths.






Some Wedding Truths.....

....you think you'll need a year to be engaged to get everything done but you don't! You'll actually wish you had less time to plan and more time to be married.

...the colors set the tone for your entire day... choose wisely!

...you'll be more grateful for your mom than you've ever been.

...you'll wish you could go dress shopping on a monthly basis! Once is just not enough!

...the wedding day is yours and your fiances. Make decisions that are right for the two of you... listen to other opinions but ultimately this is your day. If you're true to the two of you... you can't go wrong.

...you'll consume yourself with the details but in the end all that matters is he is waiting at the end of the aisle to say 'I do.' To you.

....and speaking of 'he', you'll pinch yourself multiple times knowing that he's going to be your husband soon. You're going to be a family.

I'm less than four months from marrying my best friend! I couldn't have imagined what a learnnig process planning a wedding would truly be. Lots of 'ups', a few 'downs' but all worthwhile if in the end I get to marry my Guy in May.

I like it. One piece of advice a friend gave me and I highly suggest it. At some point during your reception look around and take it all in and think..'this is our wedding'. YAY!!

Ugghhh I would of gone shoe shopping for the wedding, over and over and over, not so much the dress for me.

But so hating the long engagement we have had.

All great advice. Love these pictures too. If your wedding is inspired by these, it is going to be beautiful and sweet and romantic. :)

I especially agree with the wedding day being just for the bride and groom. We had everything we wanted and it was fabulous. I have no idea what everyone else thought of it, and I don't (well can't if I want to keep my sanity) care.
