I dream of beach weddings...

I must admit, that long before I even met P, I knew what I wanted my wedding to look like. (That's right, it was MY wedding. I've now learned to plan OUR wedding, but that's for another post!) Because I have a touch of what my friend Abby describes as "a little bit of a hippie vibe", I gravitated towards a laid-back, barefoot beach wedding. Something about feeling the sand beneath your feet and the ocean at your back as you recite your vows to your beloved is just so perfect. For example, take a look at this:

or this:

How can you not want to grab your significant other and run to a beach to get married now?!?

But I've had to let go of my fabulous beach wedding dream and trade it for an even more fabulous vision that speaks to who P and I are as a couple. Because we are a team, and this wedding is about us. And that's what its all about.

Did you have a completely different vision of your wedding before you started planning? Did that vision change? Why/why not?


  1. Perhaps you can renew your vows in 5 or 10 years and do it at the beach. My wedding was completely different from what I envisioned, we got married at the courthouse on a weekday afternoon. Do I regret it? Not one bit!!!!
