Dream wedding: What's your style?

With wedding season in full effect and my one year wedding anniversary rapidly approaching, I thought this would be the perfect time to reflect on wedding style.  Someone very close to me is in the process of planning her dream wedding and it is so exciting to relive the wedding process all over again.

I would describe my wedding style and vision as shabby-chic with a romantic twist.  Our wedding ceremony turned out to feel like a true storybook setting from the beautiful garden backdrop, the rich fuchsia, amethyst, and gray color scheme, and the music to set the mood.  Our ceremony was truly my favorite part of our wedding and I thought it reflected my wedding style and vision beautifully.
When I look back on the day, it was truly perfect in my book. If I have any regrets, they fall in the category of guest list and the dress.  I was not one of those brides who fell in love or got emotional over my dress.  I tried on over twenty dresses thinking I just hadn't found "the one" yet but that feeling just never came.  I do not think I am the type to cry over a dress.  When I see dresses now, it seems like so many more stand out to me than they did when I was wedding planning.  I still loved my dress but if I had to do it again I would have tried a a few additional styles because I now have a love for lace that I didn't have at the time.

My biggest piece of advice for future brides is to stay in control of your guest list.  Keep it down to those truly closest to you and do not feel obligated to invite relatives.  You will end up spending more than you want and in the end, some of them will not show up anyway leaving you paying for empty seats.  Keep it an intimate affair and you will have your dream wedding and not bust your budget :)  Luckily, we had a lot of financial help with our wedding so it all worked out in our favor but if I had to do it again I would invite 100 people or less.

All in all, my romantic and shabby-chic wedding was a true reflection of my wedding style.  I love weddings that are over the top romantic and that have special details unique to the couple.
