Hollie and Alex consciously planned an intimate vintage inspired wedding that was right for them. They made decisions that reflected their personalities and own desires for the day. Reflecting upon their special day, Hollie has some honest advice to share with couples planning their wedding.
“Please do not feel pressured to accommodate the wants, needs, or expectations of all – or any one person – on your guest list. Do what makes you happy. Of course, if that means accommodating everyone’s wishes and expectations then do it, just remember to schedule time for yourself and your partner to relax and not deal with wedding stuff at least once a fortnight. Too often we let our wedding planning consume our life. Couples fight, one person or both get sick, and they just generally forget that it’s planning just one day of the rest of their lives. Don’t forget that you’re in this together. You chose each other for a reason. Lean on each other when you need to, love each other, but also give space when it’s needed too.”
