As children, we often daydream about our wedding day. The thought of feeling like a princess in a big poofy dress, all of your family and friends together under one roof to celebrate your love….absolute perfection.
We often forget the journey it takes to achieve that perfection, and how difficult it actually is.
In reality, the weather might not turn out, guests who didn’t RSVP will show up, your custom decor might not ship on time, and the list goes on. In order to truly have a perfect wedding, you must remind yourself that nothing is perfect! Naturally, weddings are an organized mess and things rarely go according to a foolproof plan. Things happen, people make mistakes, and we often underestimate the process of event planning.
It is important to ask for help, whether it be from family or professionals, from people you trust. People who will come through for you, support you, and understand what you value in life. However, what is most important of all, is to remember the REAL reason you are having a wedding in the first place. To commit to the love of your life. Your wedding is perfect because you’re marrying your best friend and you’re surrounded by love and happiness.
Just remember a vicious downpour, unexpected plus ones, and missing candles, by no means impact the eternal happiness you and your partner will embark on. The pieces will fall where they will, and you might not have any control over it.
