So just over a year ago I said I DO, and we did it our way.
Over the past decade or so I have been to so many weddings and watched so many people plan their big day and you know what I learned………nothing.
I’m not being flip, I mean I learned nothing. See I always knew what i wanted. Just me and ‘him’. That’s it, my wedding was going to be like my marriage, about us.
Now I know other people like to share with loved ones, family, friends etc, but We always knew it would be just us, that and abroad!
There are lots of fayres, venues, and people to tell you what you should do. But screw that. What do you want?
Now saying that I did do somethings traditionally, I went wedding dress shopping, tried a million shoes on, googled hair styles etc.
As some one who values my time I wanted to get as much done together a possible, for my dress I visited a specialist plus size supplier and had the best day trying on about a dozen dresses. Eventually I found the perfect one, I just knew!
As for shoes I googled wedding shoe suppliers for wide feet (I’m all about that comfort). One place that came up was Elegant Steps, down I went and there was so much choice. Heels (of all heights), flats, wide fits, every colour (gold, silver, cream, rainbow) and style you could think of.
I went away with a few ideas, sadly I injured my leg a week or so after therefore heels were out and comfort was in, I went with converse in the end. Perfect.
That became the theme of my day, comfort!
I am reminded of all this after being asked to contribute to Elegant Steps recent piece on how to make your wedding less stressful. I guess I was just lucky, I had the least stressful day ever, we went to Vegas and was in and out in 7.5 mins! What more could you want!
Good luck if you’re planning your big day.
My main tip – remember what you want and do that!!
