Saying “I Do”… Your Way.

Writing your own wedding vows - A popular wedding trend, but definitely one that can prove to be a difficult task.  My husband and I wrote our own vows and I don’t think I had mine set in stone until 3 days before our wedding.  I was ALL for it, as was he, but when it came down to it… he finished his waaayy before mine.  At first I was super stressed out about it, but when I let myself just put all my feelings down on paper one day, they turned out to be everything I wanted.

Penny In Your Shoe. Pennies In Your Pocket.

It's Your Day. Make it About You.

It's YOUR big day.  The day you’ve been dreaming of since you were itty bitty.  The one day you are absolutely allowed and encouraged to be selfish.  The one day where it’s ALL about you and your partner.  And inevitably, there’s always one person (or several, if you have a big family like mine **insert eye roll emoji’s**) who will tell you what kind of flowers to get, what dress would look best on you, who should or should not be included on your guest list.  But I’m here to tell you, it’s ALL. ABOUT. YOU.

It's Time to Choose the Food

Possibly one of the biggest stresses of planning a wedding is finding a caterer you really like that has the kind of options you want to provide to your guests.  You will find that the majority of venues only offer a short list of vendors which they are contracted with.  There is always a buffet option, always a sit down dinner option, but many times that’s where your options end.

While it is convenient to have a caterer who is familiar with the venue and will be able to plan out exactly how the food will be displayed, it is often a daunting task to choose a vendor with stellar food that can “cater” to your guests’ needs.

Do I Need a Wedding Planner?

Now that the “honeymoon phase” of the engagement is over, you’re left with several important choices regarding your big day.  Who’s going to stand by my side as I marry my best friend?  Where will we go on our honeymoon?  Do we enter the reception to “Another One Bites The Dust” or leave all of our elders wondering if they even really know us and crank up some Warren G and Nate Dogg?  Does Cousin Sarah get a plus one even though we ALL know they’re going to break up in 2 months?  Will we have an open bar or… yes, of course we will. A wedding planner can definitely be beneficial when it comes to managing your stress level while making sure your big day is everything you’ve been dreaming of!
