Show us your wedding dress!

You absolutely will as long as you make that the priority. Unfortunately I kind of prioritized my wedding last and the days, weeks, months leading up to my wedding I was juggling, work, school an internship, etc. My wedding planning was haphazard at best, we missed our planes two times prior to our wedding day, half of the things I wanted to do for my wedding were NOT done and the list goes on and on.... BUT that day was awesome, everything worked out and what wasn't done didn't matter. My advice is to make the marriage the number one priority (I'm a marriage and family therapist so that's always first lol), complete all planning that can be done and stop 30 days prior to the wedding. Whatever isn't done let it go and remember no one knows but you and everyone will have fun if you have fun. Enjoy!! :D
Such good advice. I have a case of the "shoulda, coulda, woulda's" because so many things went wrong or undone. I am a school teacher but I bartended for the wedding- so I was working 7 days a week. I also had an AHR. There were so many things I wanted to do that got cut bc I didn't really have much help planning my wedding. After my experience and a close friends wedding I went to this past weekend (I had inside info on what went wrong and it was similar issues I had with my wedding) I realized there is no wedding that goes off without a hitch. What's important is how you and your husband feel that day. I was so absorbed in the moment that the things that went wrong didn't really matter. After the fact however- yea they nagged at me lol

I absolutely know the feeling and I've looked back at pics and said "I wish...." Then I told myself, hey you wanna do it a little better next time then just renew your vows in a few years... I realized my husband and I make our own rules now and we can do what we please to our own liking... That in and of itself was sooo freeing :-)

    • Greetings. I'm really confused because my younger sister's marriage is fixed. Now the date is fixed for April 15th. We are planning to conduct a function only with minimal members. I neec to find out a best wedding venue or organizer. I need your advice which will be really helpful. Thank you
    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
    • I agreed that such music would be suitable for our wedding. To make your wedding more enjoyable you can add this playlist to your event.  https://www.djtaba.com/playlist/featured-playlists/persian-wedding-dance-song/
