Weddings come in all shapes and sizes. Some are small and simple, others are big and extravagant. Either way, they are one of the most memorable days in a couples life. The important thing is to make it special. This is your big day, do what you want in your own way no matter who may disagree. When my older sister got married, she was the first in our family to walk down the aisle. She did everything to please my parents. That included inviting over 400 people, having a traditional religious ceremony, even having a wedding program to instruct guests on the flow of the wedding. My mother made her choose from wedding program examples that she liked, not what my sister liked. Imagine having to concern yourself with wedding program examples? My sister wanted my parents to be happy. In reality, she would have preferred a small intimate wedding on the beach without the concern of wedding program examples. Thankfully her groom to be just went along with everything. Her wedding day arrived and it was big and extravagant, just what my parents had always dreamed of. On her fifth wedding anniversary, she did have her dream “wedding”, both her and her husband renewed their vows on the beach just as she had hoped for. If you are in the midst of planning your wedding, make your dreams come true not someone else’s. You should have no regrets on your wedding day, it should be just what you had hoped it would be. Congratulations and good luck!
