A Wedding is a Wedding is a Wedding!!

Congratulations to all the newly engaged couples out there.  This is an exciting time and it’s a lot of fun.  Every season brings new couples, with new ideas and they all want AN UNFORGETTABLE WEDDING. Every time I meet with a new bride, I hear the same thing, “I want my wedding to be different”.  I use to smile and tell them their wedding will be different but for 2012, I’m taking a new approach. 

The truth is a wedding is a wedding is a wedding! If a planner promises you that your wedding will be like no other, please don’t take it literally.  Whatever you are thinking has been done before. Monograms, lighting, candy bars, skydiving, nude, underwater, in a zoo, you name it, it’s been done!! Even these couples that try to be anti wedding can’t help but fall into a category as well. But this doesn’t mean your wedding won’t be different.  What makes your wedding unique and special is that it’s your wedding.  

So how do you plan a wedding that is different, you start with figuring out what you want.  From colors, to food, to music to flowers, take the time to figure out your wedding day style.  Read blogs, buy magazines and get all the inspiration you need.  Whatever you do, just remember to stick to your vision and don’t get caught up in the latest trends unless it's an element that adds to your overall style.  Once you figured out your wedding day vision, stop looking! Too many elements will cloud your vision and before you know it you will have a rustic, elegant, chic, modern, masquerade with a touch of old Hollywood wedding! 

You maybe wondering "what kind of advice is this". Trust me, I'm saving a lot of time and saving your sanity.  It is easy to get caught up in the details, loose focus and stress yourself out trying to have a wedding that is different from the rest.  If you remember to stay true to yourself, this will eliminate the added stress that goes into planning your wedding.

Live.Laugh.Love….. Luxuriate!
