It’s Okay #11–Wedding Edition

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

I was inspired by a series Rachel at Holy Craft did earlier this year in which she planned a Pinterest Wedding Do-Over – she detailed all the things she would include in her wedding if she was to do it over again.

Wedding Edition!

It’s okay…

…that my bridesmaids didn’t match. They all wore navy, but whatever dress they personally chose. It worked well. But if I had done things differently…

…I still love the idea of not-exactly-matching dresses. Different shades of the same color or various colors in a palette.

…but my favorite is this rainbow bridesmaid dress idea!

It’s okay…

…that my wedding invitations were very plain. And it’s kind of okay that I messed up the wording. I chose my wording because I liked how it sounded, but it turned out that I inadvertently caused some offense in what I chose. Sigh. If I could have used any invitation, I might have chosen something like one of these…

It’s okay…

…that I didn’t have an extra special wedding cake. I just had the one my caterer made. No cake tastings, nothing fancy, just a cake. Maybe, if I had the options, I would have chosen a cake like one of these…
