The older we get the more we seem to hear these 3 words.
I myself have been married for 2 and a half years now, but I remember it like it was just yesterday.
My husband asked me to marry him on a chilly winter morning. I was so overcome by excitement and couldn’t wait to share the news with all my family and friends, but no sooner reality sank in. I began running through all the planning that needed to be done in my head. It seemed like a mammoth task and I had absolutely no idea where to start, but we jumped right in. We decided on a dated , started looking for venues and meeting with “recommended suppliers” Of course they were all too eager and we were bombarded by emails, quotes , table designs , stationary quotes and flower arrangements.
This was all very over whelming and worst of all none of it was “US”.
This was when my husband to be and I decided to take a step back, figure out what WE want and began looking for suppliers who could turn our vision into a reality. Not simply recreate what they had done so many times before.
Wedding planning can be so stressful, but finding the right people to help create your dream day is so important. This was a turning point for us, our wedding planning became a fun , progressive journey towards our happily ever after. Seeing how each supplier took our ideas and brought them to life was one of my highlights. Being able to give them a budget and working within our limits also made the whole process far less stressful.
This is my advice for any bride to be – Take your time, find people you can relate to and can share your vision. Your supplier needs to take your idea and mould it. Each couple is unique and deserves to be treated that way.
Your wedding stationary will be made and designed with love by ME . . . Especially for YOU.
