If you’re engaged and planning your wedding, (or even if you aren’t engaged, but thinking about “someday”), I imagine you’ve can safely say “I’m dreaming of my wedding.” And why not? There’s a lot to think and dream about . . .
. . . the dress
. . . the cake
. . . the flowers
You’ve probably spent some time looking at wedding magazines, surfing through Pinterest, checking out the wedding planning sites like The Knot, Wedding Wire, and MyWedding.
And you’re getting ideas and inspiration of how you want YOUR wedding day to be.
That dream is the spark, the inkling, the inspiration that ultimately takes shape, evolves, and becomes her very real wedding day.
Recently in the “wedding industry world” it’s been floating around that we, as wedding professionals/vendors, should not be telling you that we will help you have your dream wedding.
Of course we’re going to help you with that.
I mean, how can we not help you achieve what you are wanting?
Any wedding professional who is good, respectable, and has integrity will help you achieve this.
In the process we are also going to be honest and realistic with you, because, let’s face it, sometimes our dreams are bigger than what is realistically possible, and bigger than our wallets.
Like I tell my couples, after your wedding I want you to be able to have money to buy groceries, put gas in the car, and not have just racked up a boatload of debt for your wedding day.
But it’s fun to dream about different aspects of your wedding day. We’ll help you take those dreams, and translate, tweak, and edit them to create your real wedding day.
We’re not going to promise a “perfect” day. Sorry, perfection does not exist in real life.
We’re not going to guarantee that everything will be exactly as imagined, or planned. Again, sorry. There are just too many factors and too many details that just cannot be controlled (such as the exact shades of the flower colors).
“Dream” is not a taboo word. There is nothing wrong for a bride to dream about her wedding. And, as wedding professionals, there’s nothing wrong with us encouraging her to dream. For that dream is the spark, the inkling, the inspiration that ultimately takes shape, evolves, and becomes her very real wedding day.
Wedding professionals are creative people. If necessary, we can offer suggestions to help you create that dream, yet not break the bank.
So . . .
In the immortal words of Steven Tyler and Aerosmith,
And when you’re choosing your wedding vendor team, choose those who will be happy to help you reach that dream.
Hearts, Joy, Love!
