OK so this just happened and I am beyond excited. Today (it’s a Sunday here in Australia), just sitting on the couch looking through Instagram and I see a beautiful post from the ever delightful Jaime King, so I decided to write a comment and ask if I could interview for my little wedding blog.
Not expecting a reply but less than 20 minutes later i get a notification about a reply from Jaime King. Well you could just pick me up off the floor. This is no ordinary comment but a heartfelt and genuine quote.
It is rare for a celebrity to take the time out of the their busy schedule and family time to comment to fans and also to provide advice for free.
I agree with everything thing Jaime has suggested especially around how a wedding is a celebration. In my previous blog I talked about how you need to remember why you are getting married. A wedding is for one day however you should be wanting a marriage that lasts a lifetime.
Wedding advice from Jaime King
“Savor every moment, relax and enjoy, don’t be pressured into doing or inviting anyone that doesn’t uplift you, no matter what tradition states. It is a day of your dreams becoming reality, you don’t need a lot of money to make something beautiful.
Choose a place that is naturally gorgeous, with gardens, lake or the sea, or natural flora around to save on flowers etc.
A candy bar is an easy fun way for take home gifts. buffet, buffet, buffet. Karaoke machine!!! The more simple the better
And most importantly a wedding is a celebration of the spiritual union, it is sacred, not an obligation to please others.
Make a list of what is most important to you to spend on and where you can save. And if you feel cornered by any people pleasing patterns, elope! LOL!!”
Until next time
Happy planning everyone
