You and your person have decided to get married, and that is the coolest, greatest feeling EVER!! Hopefully you've taken some time to sit back and enjoy that glowy bit of goodness. But there is that moment when you realize that the people in your world are expecting you to throw a wedding. And maybe you've never even really thought about pulling off a real life, walk-down-the-aisle-in-front-of-everyone sort of thing. Let me tell you, that was me a whole lot of years ago. I got married back when the dinosaurs roamed, and when my now husband proposed I'd never even THOUGHT about a wedding. I wanted to get going on the marriage, but I didn't really care about the wedding itself. I get you, friend.
Here's the thing I've learned in my decade-ish as a wedding planner: this wedding thing doesn't really have to be that hard. Take the word wedding out of it, and you're just planning a super huge party for all the people you love (with a little legal thing thrown in for fun). Or keep the word wedding in, and realize that this is your opportunity to spoil your village, profess your love as publicly as you want, and make some awesome memories in the process. It's not about the stuff. It's not about what everyone else expects. It's about what you choose to do with this particular moment in your life. There are no wrong answers; hopefully there is just a lot of love.
How I cater to Offbeat Brides
Over here in our Sane little corner of the world, we already love you. We think your wedding will be the best one ever (seriously! Best. One. Ever.). We will encourage you to wear that sky blue tuxedo, or bring your fire spinning friends to entertain during the reception, or have an epic video game battle instead of a dance party. We can even help you hunt down a secret place in the middle of the woods and throw you the best elopement ever. We can help you do all the things, because we love you. And we love love.
We also love skulls and all things dark and dramatic, because OMG #skullsareweddingy and it should always be Halloween.
There’s not much we haven’t done, not much that will shock us, and not much we can’t help you find an answer to. We will take your stories (we love to hear your stories!!), your visions (trust me, they are in there) and your budget (no matter how big or small) and we will tailor a package to help you win this wedding thing while keeping your sanity intact. Seeing you surrounded with love and hugs and smiles (perhaps a unicorn or a skull, too) is what fills up our happy little hearts.
And skulls. Did we mention the skulls?
Gang, let’s do this! We can’t wait to meet you!!
