Having now had many a conversation with a new bride-to-be regarding how she should tackle her own wedding planning, there is a common theme that kept coming up that I am 1000% most brides battle. Where do I start? The biggest concern that she has voiced to me on a number of occasions is essentially she doesn't even know where to begin to sort out what she wants. A spot of advice flowed out of my mouth that now comes as natural to me as breathing. Sometimes you have to figure out what you don't like, to realize what you do like...& by default, what you do want. As it turns out, I am my own case & point. Before I ever got engaged, I was totally Team Brown & Turquoise wedding. I was so pro that color combo that my darling BFF, when she got married, was heavily influenced to my watery brown ways! (Thankfully in the end, she did not!) When the clock finally started on our own wedding planning, into the browser went brown & blue weddings. Turned out, it wasnt me... at all. This ended up bring an important lesson for me. Granted I am pretty opinionated to kick things off, but it was a reality check for me to realize some really defined lines of things I really did not like. This helped me shape & direct my vision in a way I didn't realize.
