When you start planning your big day there will be a million voices telling you what you should and shouldn’t do. It is up to you and your groom to decide which voices are the most important to you. There will be people (and when we say people we usually mean family members) that will give you their opinion, usually without you asking them for it. You need to realize and take into account the opinions and views of the people that truly matter and want what’s best for you.
Other people will try to convince you that green and orange are good colors for a wedding in March, or that your bridesmaids all need to look exactly the same. If you try to make everyone happy, you will completely miss the whole reason behind a wedding… it’s the first day of the rest of your life as husband and wife. You should always focus on what makes you happy and what your style is. You will hear everyone’s opinions about what they think you should spend money on, but you have to prioritize what is the most important to you.
There may be some headaches along the way (which believe us, it WILL happen) but you must stand up for what you truly love. The last thing you want is to do something because someone else says so, and then hate it in the long run. People will always talk about your wedding day and point out something they didn’t like. There will always be someone who says that you should have done this or that, but if you and your groom are happy that’s all that matters.
Do what makes you happy, pick the colors you want, invite who you think should be at your wedding, and make it the most memorable day of your life. You have to figure out who the most important people truly are… both of you!
