Advice To Think Twice About

When you get engaged, you are going to have a lot of family and friends talk to you about your wedding and what they for theirs. One thing I love about weddings, is that there is not a single perfect way to execute a wedding because each one is unique and special in its own way. So, if you get “advice” from someone and it is something listed here, please think hard about your options. You don’t have to do something a certain way or do anything you don’t want to do. This is your wedding day! Make sure you feel comfortable with your plans!

  1. Why don’t you do your own makeup? You’re so good at it!
    • I’m just going to say it like this, if you are good at makeup that does not mean you have to do your own! This is your wedding day; you are allowed to pay someone to do it for you.
  2. You can always sell it later.
    • I would say this is an easy way to go over budget especially with things you don’t necessarily need. Plus, you will maybe get 25-50% back of what you paid for it.
  3. Fake flowers look just like real ones.
    • As someone who used fake flowers in her wedding, they do not look like real flowers in person, maybe in photos. Now if the décor is not a priority, then by all means go with fake flowers!
  4. Just DIY everything!
    • This is time consuming. If you don’t have the resources or the time, try to DIY as little as possible for your wedding.
  5. Don’t make it fancy.
    • Ummm…You do you boo! If you want it chill, make it chill. If you want it fancy, make it fancy. This is your wedding!
  6. Make sure you invite everyone.
    • The more people you invite, the more you will end up spending (check out my blog for helping brides narrow down their guest list!).
  7. At the end of the day, the wedding does matter, the marriage does.
    • Yes, the marriage is more important than the actual wedding itself, but that doesn’t take the importance of your wedding day away! You just spent almost a year (maybe even longer) planning the most special day of your life. Your wedding DOES matter!!
