Tips and Ideas
 

Our utterly subjective advice:

1.  Dream up a celebration that makes your heart soar. Choose a theme or gorgeous color palette if you want, or throw tradition to the wind and get married on a mountaintop in hiking boots. It's all about how you want to begin this great adventure.

2.  Realize that planning it will almost inevitably be stressful. This milestone is a big deal. This does not mean you are a bridezilla.

3.  Listen to your loved ones' ideas and needs (like maybe Grandma needs wheelchair access) but ultimately listen to your own dreams. You are creating a new unit, a new family, and that is what should be respected the most.

4.  Feel free to scream occasionally.

5.  Some do-it-yourself details can be filled with heart and lots of fun. But don't feel like you have to spend months making the perfect decorations.

6.  Don't compare yourself to all those styled photo shoots out there. Like, at all. 

7.  Embrace imperfection, mistakes, rain, a flat tire, hurricane winds—because ultimately it's all about love.
