"Don't be like the rest of them, darling."
Planning your own wedding is such a big, important task. And sure, you can always rely on your mum, sister or best friend to calm you down when you’re feeling stressed. But sometimes you need your own personal motivators.
So today we thought we share some of our favourite quotes to calm you and motivate when you’re planning your own wedding…and it just gets a little bit too much.
Getting married is a brand new chapter and it’s the start of a new adventure. So when a DIY project goes wrong or you can’t decide on the guest list, remember that planning your own wedding, the biggest day of your life is only the beginning of this new adventure.
Sometimes you and your partner will disagree on things. Sometimes you’ll love something when he doesn’t and vice versa. This is a quote for those moments. It’s okay to not agree on everything all of the time.
Do you want to do something differently at your wedding? Want to throw the traditions out of the window? This quote is a reminder to go for what you want and don’t be afraid to be different.
For those moments when you show your bridesmaids a picture of the dress you want them to wear and they hate it. It’s your wedding. That’s the most important thing to remember.
If there are too many people getting involved, someone suggests an idea you don’t like, or your future mother-in-law is just getting on your nerves – this quote is for you. Sometimes a “no” can be as good as a “yes”!
When you look out from your top table or when you’re walking back down the aisle, you want to know and love everyone there. So if you’re struggling with your guest list, or you don’t know who to pick to be your bridesmaids, surround yourself with the people who get you.
Feel like you’re doubting every single decision you’ve made? It’s even worse when others make you feel like way. As long as you’re both happy with the decisions you’ve made, nothing else matters.
There will come a point where everything gets too much and you’ll want to take a step back. Remember this quote at that moment. Take a deep breath, reevaluate and focus on your priorities. Always keep your main priorities in the back of your mind.
Honestly, you can ask for all the advice and planning tips in the world. But what’s really important is that you’re creating a wedding day that you both want. Make it personal, make it one to remember and make it yours.
Just one final reminder that it’s your wedding and as long as the two of you are happy, that’s what matters the most.
