For anyone that reads Style Me Pretty you know that we are a group of girls who love us some seriously gorgeous details. We’ve been talking a lot about details lately here, as it’s the details that give us the wedding giddies, that have us gushing while we drink our morning coffee. But that’s not why we love weddings. And we don’t ever want to allow those details to overshadow that reason. A wedding, in it’s most beautiful state, is about the love. Pure and simple. It’s the moment that he lays eyes on her, the minute those vows are read, the first kiss, the first dance. It’s the love that will always be the reason that we get up in the morning and the reason we fall head over heels for every affair that goes up on SMP. So when we read how this particular bride married the pretty with the passion, well…we became very happy bloggers.

From the Bride…I had way too many favorite moments on our day! However, if I HAD to pick one favorite moment, it would have to be the wedding ceremony. The feeling of walking towards your husband-to-be, in front of all your loved ones, is indescribable. The beautiful flowers, the carefully selected music played by our trio, the perfect summer day, the words spoken by our pastor, the way my veil flowed in the wind, all played big roles in making our ceremony perfect. Along with the perfect details, the ceremony was intimate and personal, which made it that much more memorable.
My advice to brides sounds cliche, but remember to soak up every second of your wedding day. It will be a blur. Our coordinator basically had us promise her that we’ll stop and take a few seconds before walking back down the aisle as husband and wife. I’m so glad we did that, because we were able to take a mental picture of everything before the crazy start to an unforgettable night. Remember to breath and let go if there are any mishaps during your wedding day. Don’t waste your time worrying/stressing out. Rather, use that energy/time to be with your family and friends. Always focus on the positive and be happy, because you’ll never get that moment back.
