Your Own Desires
Some of us have a clear and strong vision of their wedding day from the outset and that’s great. Bloody handy actually. Now you want to bring those visions and wants into fruition and make sure you fit those ideas into the planning.
Before you go ahead and set your heart on the wedding of your dreams, make sure you check in on your budget. There is nothing worse than pinning everything you want, but finding out it is completely out of reach.
A great tip would be to write down everything you want and need from your wedding day, and everything that would be nice. These are pretty different things so be sure to tackle the deal breaker aspects first before you focus on the luxuries.
There are certain areas in which you probably want to bow to tradition, even if it means that you are going to have to compromise on something that you and your partner really want to happen in the big day. Traditions can be anything from being given away by your father, father of the bride speech first, and even the bride and groom not seeing each other before the service.
All of these traditions can me modified or all together scrapped if you want to. Quirky ideas like before the ceremony shoot with your soon to be husband can be a great alternative to a tradition, and give you some gorgeous extra shots. Be open to tradition, but be aware also that they can be moulded and changed to make your day special.
