I decided a few days ago to start a blog to go with our Instagram account. Since then I haven't really been inspired to write about anything in particular, but today I have been struggling a bit with the whole planning process, so I've decided to write about that.
Anyone who has ever planned a wedding will know what I mean when I say that it is a very stressful process. There are a million books, magazines, websites and people telling you what to do, where to start, what you should have done and by when- and yet it all somehow seems insurmountable. I honestly wish someone would just do it all for me (I realise this is what wedding planners are for, however budget does not allow this). How good would it be to just turn up on the day and have the wedding of your dreams all set up for you, without you having to lift a finger… A girl can dream, right?
I, like a lot of women (engaged or not) have a Pinterest board of wedding inspiration. Currently it's a mishmash of different styles, colours and themes. Although I feel like I have an idea of what I want, with every Instagram post I see of these beautifully styled weddings; little details are changing all the time! I'm thinking a mood board might be a good place to start? Just to get a feel for the sort of vibe we want, and how we want our guests and ourselves to feel on the day.
I definitely have had my first wedding planning breakdown today, but I know eventually things will start to come together and I'll (hopefully??) look back on this time and miss the fun of putting together such a big event. I guess I just want the day to reflect us and our love for each other and our family and friends.
How would you describe the wedding planning process? How did you cope with the stress? I find wine helps 😂🍷
Love and good vibes,
