About It's A Jaime Thing
Some of us know right off the bat what style wedding
we want. What happens when you just can't decide, when you don't know what style you are, let alone even want? Why do you have to limit yourself to one, can't you just toy around with them or have them all? YES! Yes. Absolutely. So stop stressing and start having fun
Whether you're a traditional bride
or a vintage bride
, keep in mind that today, the modern bride
does whatever she wants. Maybe she mixes things up, planning
her day a little funkier or cooler by defining her own wedding style rather than trying to have a wedding style define her!
Who says you can't mix white dishes with cream? Why not mix modern stemware with traditional settings? Wear a short, sexy wedding dress
with a long traditional veil? Throw black into white, turn it grey and go crazy with it. Go on! Be a shepherd, not a sheep, as they say! I dare you.
Come on, wouldn't it be more fun to actually do what you want to do, rather than plan around what will impress everyone else? The people that you invite
to your wedding should be people who love you and want to celebrate with you your newly wedded happiness. They're not there to see if you can impress them. They're just there to celebrate with you!
Serve barbeque if you want to. Skip the traditional dances if you wish. Maybe turn the bouquet toss into something for all the ladies as luck or leave it out all together! Who cares? Make your own rules. Make your own traditions. Some of the most enjoyable weddings I've been to were ones where the couple tossed the "rules" and made their own.
