You can throw a rock into a wedding planning pool and hit at least 15 blog posts talking about the “must-haves for your wedding.” They are a contrived list that pushes your wedding day towards concentrating on material things and moves it away from the people at the heart of it. There is always that one person in your ear whispering that “your wedding isn’t real if it doesn’t have XYZ.” To that, I say bullshit.
But doesn’t a wedding need those things?
A wedding needs a single thing, you and your love(s). Anything beyond that is entirely up to you.
Have you always dreamt of a wedding full of flowers?
Fill the whole damn place up with your favorite ones and dance the night away to a floral scent wafting through the air.
Is a ceremony made of movie-references your thing?
That sounds amazing. And yes, my husband whipped out a wand and started his wedding vows with “I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good.
Does jumping in the pool at the end of the day sound like the best thing in the world?
Awesome, I’ll bring my swim shorts.
Do you want to make a pit stop to have wedding day photos with your pet?
Um hello, my dog is one of the great loves of my life too. I only ask to pet your fluffy friend in exchange.
Do you want to involve any fandoms or hobbies into your wedding day decor?
Yes please. I’m down to photograph whatever you love the most.
