{Wedding Lesson} Let's Be Real

Hello My Vintage Lovers! Long time no blog, I know! With only 43 days left until my big day - it's crunch time! Today, I just want to be real and share some truth I have learned throughout my Engagement and hopefully it will be of some value to you and your personal planning process. Besides deciding between ivory or white and cake or pie, I can honestly say my wedding planning process has been emotional and at times, a trying experience. Opinions and countless personalities are bound to make any decision making process difficult.
I trust I am not alone on this journey, weddings truthfully test not only your character but every one's involved. You really find out who genuinely cares for you and who is willing to bend over backwards to make your walk down the aisle that magical moment you have been dreaming of since childhood! Personally, I have learned a lot. There are things I would change and things I wouldn't, but all and all I have learned one very important thing - what really matters. It's not about anyone else - they have had or will have their time. It's your time to be selfish! After all, your only a Bride once.
There are going to be people that don't realize that and think only of themselves. I am happy to say that I am finally realizing that if that is how they feel, it's not worth my time worrying about negative opinions or trying to make other people happy. In the end, it's about that moment when the doors open, your friends and family stand, and you make eye contact with the Man you are going to spend the rest of your life with. 
Most of all, planning a wedding means more than just one day; there is nothing on this earth more important than Family; and that, while details are nice, true love always, always wins.
