You already know by now how much I was having doubts about my wedding gown. But that is one tiny thing on a whole laundry list of things I have had doubts about while planning this shin-dig. The pictures below will illustrate what I'm talking about...
The first gorgeous picture comes to us from Kate Botwinski Photography and I found it on www.oncewed.comIt's completely stunning pictures like this one that make me think I'll regret not having a veil. I see this and I think "that could be me!" or "I need a picture JUST like this one!" But sadly, I will not get that chance. C'est la vie.
Next up is from Allegro Photography, and it can be found on www.stylemepretty.comWhile this picture is beautiful, it reinforces that I am glad I made the decision to get married outdoors. That aside, it makes me long for those adorable tutu dresses the flower girls are wearing! I knew from before we even got engaged that I wanted to have flower girls in tutu dresses. However, my fiance not exactly loving the idea, and fearing what my nieces would really think if I wanted to put them in these frilly things, I opted for a simpler approach. They will still be the cutest things you're ever seen, but thanks to this picture I still wonder "what if..."
Here we have a picture from Paul Morse, found on www.districtweddings.com This one is SO fun and in short, it really makes me wish I was getting married in the city. I had checked out a hotel in the Inner Harbor in Baltimore before we decided on CBF and I keep thinking, we could have made it work. How great would it be to have glamorous pictures taken at night, in the middle of a bustling city, where it seems everything is revolving around you? Romantic, I know.
At the end of the day though, I realize that all of the decisions I've made are decisions I wanted at some point, and even still want. I can't have a wedding on a beach, and in a city, and in a vineyard all at the same time! I know that even if I did have a veil I'd be thinking "what would I look like without it?" or simply "this stupid thing keeps getting in my way!" and the same goes for all the other doubts. If I had them, I would ultimately want something else. I know my wedding will be wonderful, and the most important thing is that Patrick and I will be married when all is said and done. And my husband-to-be is the one aspect of this wedding I do not have doubts about! Thank goodness for that!
