The best bit of wedding advice ever - from a bride
Absolutely the best bit of wedding advice I’ve seen from one of my brides is this “It’s your wedding day, fuck what everyone else says you should have, do what you want”
Seriously - there are so many well meaning wedding blogs around that ram things down your throat, there may be people around you who think you should have certain things on a wedding day - you don;t need to do anything you don’t feel completely passionate about.
This is your day, YOUR day. Not anyone else’s.
Don’t want a first dance, don’t have one. Have a first party dance or something, get everyone up dancing - celebrate together!
Don’t want to do speeches because people don’t like doing them - don’t do them, or do them at the end of the night when you’ve had a few beers - the DJ or band will have a microphone. If you want to say something to your other half but not in front of everyone, write them a letter they can read in the morning or something.
Don’t want a cake? Why the hell not - I love cake! Anyway, if you don’t want one don't have one.
That uncle you never liked or never talk to, invite some of your friends to the day instead.
Look - what I’m saying is don’t try and appease other people - if you want to dress up like gnomes and get married, do it…if you want to moonwalk down the aisle do it, do whatever you want - it’s absolutely positively your day, have it your way (didn’t burger king say that? sorry bk). Just do what you want, the people who love you will understand.
What are you waiting for - go plan your wedding how YOU want to.
