What a crazy start to 2014!
You probably caught our post when we wrote about my other half asking me to get married. The proposal was a joyous occasion and now we’re off! …planning our big day.
I’m a bride to be so you might guess that I’m planning my perfect wedding and calling ALL the shots. Not so fast!
Of course, there’s another bride to be in this wedding!
Planning with two brides isn’t too different than what boy/girl wedding plans might be like. Just like other couples who have a lot in common, we agree on most things. For us, we’ve decided on skipping the cake, our first dance song (that one was easily nailed down), and we both agree that comfort food is a MUST.
And just like other couples, some of the other details are like playing a game of tug o’ war.
So we’ve worked out a little strategy. First, we clearly communicate which elements are major must-haves for the other bride. Bottom line is, we are both girls with very distinct wedding needs and wants! So when things don’t quite match up, we each make a list of the items we won’t back down on and agree to table the discussion for later (when a little hard alcohol is usually involved). Then we just make sure to write down the final agreement.
So far, the strategy is working.
I plan to wear a stunning couture gown and my beautiful bride will wear an off white or cream custom suit. We had a makeup trial in mid-May and I convinced my simple stylish plain Jane to wear false lashes for our big day! So that will be fun after all. I plan to have a romantic Brigitte Bordeaux inspired up-style for the intimate ceremony and her hair…is to be determined. 🙂
Through it all, we are sure to remember that love is about compromise. And, if in the end, everything is camouflage then so be it — as long as we’re married, we could care less!
