After discussing wedding planning with my favorite bride to be last night, I realized that having no idea what you want is much worse than having your big day planned since childhood.
With all the bridal magazines, blogs, and television shows out there, it's pretty easy to be overwhelmed and constantly in search of the "perfect" answer to your party plans.
Whether its the favors or the flowers, the options are limitless.
But after a few minutes of overwhelming conversation, I asked her, "Have you sat down, without all these magazines and distractions, and made a list of what's really important to you on your wedding day?"
Because to me, that's what matters most.
The list of importance doesn't include "The perfect favor! The perfect font for those invitations! Or even the perfect dress for the occasion..."
My list is short.
Him, me, and those close to us.
But in light of all the world of advertising has to offer, that list can seem like a ticket for the smallest wedding, rather than the most memorable....
With such a short love-list, am I oversimplifying an extravagant affair?
Will I be disappointed that I didn't make the most of my "big day?"
And if so... then tell me this:
What's on your list?
