The Ideal Wedding

Engagement and Marriage: Lifestyle

I’ve talked with my fair share of brides and helped plan my share of weddings. I’ve been a bridesmaid in quite a few bridal parties, and I did a fair amount of planning during my own wedding. I know these things can’t be systematized, but from all the data, I’ve created a theory surrounding the characteristics of the ideal wedding. Lists can be daunting and hard to live up to, but I just want to throw it out there in case it’s helpful... The ideal wedding:1. The bride and groom get married 2.

"I'll Love Myself When I..."

Body Positivity

If I just lose 5 more pounds, then I’ll be happy! !!!NEWS FLASH!!! Not with that attitude you won’t!Learning to love ourselves is something we’ve all struggled with at some point in our lives!

I hear it all too often from brides, "I hate my arms!" You’re in this beautiful gown that fits everything you’ve ever dreamed of in a wedding dress.

Truth is, there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with your arms. Quite honestly,...

Body Positivity

Mom: Honey you look beautiful, but if you just lose that little pouch it’ll look even better! Who knew one little comment could make or break an appointment! Seeing the bride go from “I’ve dreamed of this day my whole life” to “can we just leave now” is a hard thing to watch. First off, there is absolutely nothing wrong with how any bride looks. Every bride has so many characteristics to love we could be here for days trying to name them all! Secondly, none of the dresses we try on during the appointment are going to fit PERFECTLY....

Looking Your Best on Your Wedding Day

Body Positivity

Looking your best on your wedding day.... Is not about being at your tiniest. In fact, why is being at your tiniest associated with looking your best? Why isn’t looking your best associated with whatever way you look when you look at the love of your life? Whatever way you look when you commit to “forever” with another person?Whatever way you look when you are fully known, flaws and all, and are chosen? I don’t know. And I’m changing the narrative, as far as my words can reach. I was not at my tiniest on my wedding day. I was...
