Passion for all that is beautiful and inspiring... And food, passion for food.
I hate seeing photos of weddings on Pinterest. It makes me sad mine didn’t go like the way I would have dreamed it to be.
I know that sounds petty and quite ridiculous, but it’s the truth. I didn’t have a plan or dream of my wedding until I was engaged, then people began asking what my color scheme was, theme, etc, so I began to dream.
People kept saying it’s our day, do what I want, don’t listen to others.
The thing is it’s our marriage but it’s their day. You end up being stretched thin making everybody else happy. Making sure the food is great for others when you don’t even get to enjoy it, cake even, the music is meant for everyone else, the decor has to be to others taste. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, has a say in your choice of dress.
Either go against their wishes, ignore them all, or comply and deal with it.
Most girls don’t have coming out parties anymore, no excuse to dress up and wear a gown. The wedding day is this day. The one time the girl gets to dress up and feel more lovely than anything and not just for herself but the love of her life.
Instead half the time is spent fretting over everyone else, even before the groom.
To those out there, try and stay strong. I may try to not live in regret, but sometimes looking back feels unfulfilling. Looking forward though shows a brighter light with the man I love. And who knows, in all our days I might have the chance to go on a fancy date and wear a gown just for my prince.
