TEN | Don’t lose sight of what it’s all about.
In an ideal world we’d all have everything we want on our wedding day, but sadly that’s not the reality and sooner or later you’ll have to compromise on something and it might feel heartbreaking at the time.
But I promise, your guests will not remember every flower contained in your displays or every decoration at your ceremony, but they will remember the sentiment of the day and how comfortable and special they were made to feel.
There’s a balance to be drawn between what you want for your dream wedding and creating a balanced enjoyable day for you and your guests.
A couple of examples to explain what I mean here.
A choice of upgrading to those tall gorgeous centrepieces you want at an extra 100euros per arrangement, or offering your guests a refreshing glass of fruit punch when they arrive to feel comfortable in the heat.
Adding an extra 2 hours with your photographer or providing transfers for your guests to get safely too/from the venue.
Stay true to you, don’t get caught up in the ‘keeping up with the Smiths’ mentality.
What works for someone else wont necessarily fit your wedding.
Make sure when you look back that you’re happy with the decisions you made and are happy with the special memories you created, that’s what you’ll be talk about for years to come.
Did you make any mistake with your wedding? In hindsight would you do anything differently?
A few of our previous couples shared things in hindsight, they might do differently.
Rachel – Santorini
Add fairy lights to my venue and do something the next day with everyone.
Kayleigh – Zakynthos
Start getting ready a little earlier in the day instead of hanging by the pool.
Natalie – Crete
Nothing it was 100% perfect.
Katie – Santorini.
