To the brides that have to postpone, reschedule, and cancel…
I don’t know the emotional stress you’re going through. And to be honest, I can’t even imagine going through the decisions you have made. What I do know is that it’s okay to feel. It’s okay if you’re angry, feeling selfish, or just sad and heart broken. My heart is broken for you.
I began working in this industry before I was married, before I was even engaged. I didn’t need to be married though to get on a bride’s level, because I believe in fairytales. I believe that you can fall in love and have your happily ever after, if that’s what you are choosing in life. I also believe that love deserves to be celebrated. Whether your celebration is in a downtown hotel ballroom, on the beach, or in a garden in your backyard, YOUR LOVE DESERVES TO BE CELEBRATED.
I know the amount of time, effort, and money it’s taken you to create your dream day. I know that, I’ve been there. I know you’ve been counting down the days until your bridal showers, bachelorette party, and the morning you can wake up and say, “Today is the day!” I’m sorry, I’ve been there. But from a professional point of view, AND a believer in [your] fairytale… wait just a little bit longer. Your love deserves to be celebrated. It’s hard now, you’re not alone, but please; the wait, it will be worth it. If you’ve dreamt of an early Spring, crisp day wedding, nobody is pressuring you to rush into it this Fall. Wait. You deserve that Spring day. If you are wanting to keep that special venue but can’t seem to find a new date, don’t give up. You deserve to bring your vision to life. Your photographer, your florals, other vendors, your friends & family; they will all be there for you when your day arrives, celebrating your love story. Everyone is behind you no matter the decision you are choosing to make. You’re strong, no matter that decision.
Your life with your significant other isn’t going anywhere. Actually, it’s already begun. This big party you’re planning is simply just what I said above… a celebration. So keep loving your fiance, and know that when your big day finally comes; next season, next year, whenever you choose, it will be worth the wait. Your love deserves to be celebrated.
