Wedding Planning – A Bride’s Perspective
Imagining your own proposal is what every girl dreams about. Hoping that when you get engaged, it is everything you’ve always wanted. I got engaged about two months ago, and it is a day that I will never forget. It was everything I could have hoped for and more.
After he ‘pops the question’ is when it all really starts to set in. I can’t explain the excited, but nervous butterfly feeling you then get in your stomach as you imagine and plan out how you want to announce your engagement to all of your friends and family. Being engaged is so exciting and you really do feel glowing.
Realizing that I now have a wedding to plan makes me happier than ever. Words cannot describe how happy it makes me that my fiance and I can plan our dream wedding. The first thing I did was buy a wedding planner, and it was the best decision. After flipping through it, I read over so many different aspects of a wedding that I would have never thought of on my own. Finding the perfect caterer, florist, dj, dress, song list, etc. can get very stressful, but so fun and I cannot wait to see all of my visions come together on the big day. Attending bridal shows and wedding expos is such a huge help and has given me so much inspiration. Walking around getting different vendors’ business cards, sampling foods, picking out colors… it’s like a dream come true for a want-to-be event planner like myself.
There are so many aspects when it comes to wedding planning, but I’ve learned quickly that it’s so important to stay true to yourself. Don’t let the opinions of others effect what you want on your big day. This will be a day that my fiancé and I will remember forever, and part of the fun is the time leading up to it.
