Dream vs. Reality

Some brides have dreamt about their wedding day since they were a little girl. While I don't remember doing this, I have put a lot of thought into it the last year or so. I think one of the hardest things about wedding planning is seeing all those pretty pictures, and turning them into your reality.

When I first started looking at wedding blogs and magazines, I was like a kid in a candy store. I want this, I want to make that, I want to have this.... but then you start thinking about how to implement it. Who is going to man that photo booth? Where are you going to get and transport 3 foot balloons? How are you going to make yard games? Who is going to hang and light all of those hanging lanterns.

Don't get me wrong, I think that having all of these pretty pictures to look at is great for inspiration. But turning inspiration into reality can be hard. The logisitics of the wedding day are key- if you have yard games that arent set up, a photo booth that no one can figure out how to use, and hanging lanterns that are falling into peoples' food- your wedding dreams become a nightmare.

Dream big, but remember, having a few details you love executed perfectly is much better than trying to do it all. Remember, your wedding is about you- make sure that your details reflect that and everything will turn out beautiful.
