Brides should have the wedding they’ve always dreamed. Tantamount to the wedding is the fulfillment of bridal wishes that come true. The fairy tale is important to have with a wedding, but living your dream doesn’t have to couple with excessive cost or over the top style. It can, naturally, and in a variety of settings, a lavish wedding is a day that is incomparable to price with value. But today is uber-busy. Brides in our modern times, have perhaps less time in their everyday routines to pause, let alone think about their perfect day. I want to encourage you to do just that… Dream.
A wedding is a momentous occasion and very likely the only one of its kind that will shine well past the glitz and sparkly faire. Brides (and their grooms) can benefit from a little extra something… this includes dreaming about their wedding. The dreams don’t need to be all get out, or minuscule. They just have to be real. Real dreams shared by the couple who are about to wed and share their life together as real life partners. We’re often trained to leave our dreamtime behind, however I believe thinking about that special day can be as enjoyable and wonderful as the moment by moment wedding planning leading up to it.
Of equal importance is the time brides-to-be should spend musing about the wedding they want to have; whether that time is at the edges of the day or at night. It’s a moment of gratitude couples may experience when they share their intimate thoughts of the life together they will share. I believe weddings are magical. They can become as lavish, or demure, as the wedding couple dreams. When a bride and her groom are able, they can allow some extra moments to think about how and where they will experience their beautiful day.
‘Devote more time to thinking about my wedding,’ you ask? Yes. We all live busy lives and adding a wedding to the mix can make emotions and limitations on personal time skyrocket. It’s all too common for a bride-to-be to ponder all the myriad of details she’ll have to attend with her big day, both before and after the event. There’s little surprise if she and the groom may feel a bit, if not majorly overwhelmed. But before the nuptials, there are 3 things brides can consider well before their wedding day. I like to think of them as the things I wished I had thought about early in my wedding planning precluding my wonderful union. As a wedding planner, I like to share with newlyweds-to-be, 3 Bridal Wishes for a Wedding Come True.
Bridal Wish One: Dream about the way you want to feel in your wedding and how you will experience it.
This is your big day. Whether you envision it as summery and effete or grand scale and Hollywood proper, you know in your heart of hearts, in your fondest wish, you’re the star. You want heads to turn, eyes popped wide, and mouths propped open into the surprised, prefect “O.” Year twenty-twelve is the year of high wedding trends for things pretty, romantic, and sweet. Pick a wedding planner if you need to share some of the momentous nuptials with presentation, who understands you want everything on your day to be absolutely, beautiful.
Bridal Wish Two: Live your day the way you’ve always wanted (and allow the dream to be scalable with your most prized accoutrements and loved ones).
Changes and shifts in economy may send your thoughts of pre-wedding expectations to the wedding jitter stratosphere. However herein is the wedding grail. Have the wedding you dream and consider “flexibility.” In the weddings I’ve presented, one ‘preciousness’ has always ringed true:
An intimate wedding, whether large or small, is treasured most when you have the people you love closest to you. Consider planning your wedding accordingly.
A couple’s wedding I presented wanted a simple gathering. They wanted a get-together that was subtle and still kept to their family’s close-knit nature. Together we came up with a personable setting that brought together the outdoors and indoors to their wedding; complete with perfectly dressed child ring bearer and flower girl, and a DIY pine sandbox filled with sand from the shore.
It’s never how much you spend on your wedding; it’s the experience you share with your life partner, friends, and loved ones that shape a future of together. Find a wedding planner who will help you realize your special day with a personal foresight.
Bridal Wish Three: Work with a planner you find that you can build a connection with and professional relationship with together.
Meet and sit down with your wedding planner of choice. I cannot recommend enough how important this is, to find a person who will gel with your individuality. At the end of the day, it’s not the price, but how you will have the right presenter to help you carry through, so all you need think about is you and your special someone down the aisle, and to the altar!
Dreams are an important part of wedding planning. Take the time you deserve to think about the things and people most special to you. Then make a date with your planner and see your wedding dreams come true – with a fabulous walk down the aisle!
