Do you scroll through wedding Instagram feeds and spend hours pinning pictures to Pinterest only to start second guessing every single decision you have made? In 2 Steps Away From Being an Organized Bride my #1 step is to not dwell on decisions! But unfortunately we all do it. Here are tips to avoid getting a major case of the wedding comparison trap blues!
FOCUS ON WHY YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED
In 5 Wedding Planning Secrets I talk about why it’s important to focus on what it’s all about – marrying the one you love! If you focus on this, you will have no wedding to compare yours to.
USE SOCIAL MEDIA FOR INSPIRATION NOT MIMICKING
Social media and wedding blogs are a great place to get inspired for your wedding. There are millions of pictures to look through and get inspiration for your pink wedding or nautical themed wedding. But if you replicate wedding details exactly, your wedding might not be uniquely you. And as I always say, you could be setting the next big trend in weddings! So use social media for inspiration to set the next big trend!
Ever see a styled wedding table and think how could I possibly pull this off or afford this? That’s because a lot of wedding inspiration comes from styled shoots that are assembled entirely by wedding professionals.
INCLUDE MEANINGFUL DETAILS
Add components to your wedding that matter to you as a couple. Frame your engagement pictures, have your grandmothers locket with her photo on your bouquet or surprise your hubby to be with something he loves on your wedding day. These meaningful details will make your wedding special, not the photo of Valentino wedding shoes you have pinned to your board ‘Dream Wedding.’
BRING ON THE CHAMPS!
Turn your wedding planning process into fun events! If you are sipping champagne at your cake tasting or wedding dress appointment, you’ll be having too much fun to get stuck in the wedding comparison trap!
