Since I had my surgery, I’ve been watching a lot of TV. A. Lot. Two of my favorite programs are What Not to Wear and My Fair Wedding. And believe it or not, each of these shows have a core message that they share: you are worth it.
You deserve the wedding of your dreams. If David Tutera has only taught me one thing, it is that every woman deserves the wedding of her dreams. Yes, budgetary constraints may sometimes get in the way. But there really is a way to make your dreams happen. Think big. Then figure out how to make that work within your budget. And make sure you have reasonable expectations. Though I want you to dream big, don’t expect to spend $10,000 on flowers if your entire wedding budget is $10,000. Instead, figure out ways to make your limited budget look bigger than it is. No idea how? Hiring the right professionals will help.
You deserve to be pampered. Stacy and Clinton really tout the importance of taking time for yourself. So often we women take on the role of caregiver of everyone around us – except ourselves. Find time in your day to do something only for you. And on your wedding day most of all. Hire professionals – for hair, make-up…everything.
You deserve to be Carefree. Please don’t spend your wedding day running around worrying about where the cake or DJ is. I don’t want you even putting on your make-up. There is only one thing you should be concerned with on your wedding day: love.
Remember: you are worth it.
