You’re engaged! The planning is soon to start, and there’s a vast myriad of details to tend to in planning your perfect day. What kind of bride are you going to be? Are you going to take it all in stride or turn into Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde? Find out what kind of bride you are and how to match your wedding day to your personality style.
Are you all about the budget? Is your checkbook always balanced to the penny? Is ‘bargain shopper’ your middle name? You may be the practical bride. You want everything to be lovely, but you are not willing to go broke to achieve it. You will research and find ways to cut corners to achieve what you want while making sure every detail is planned so there are no hidden costs or surprises.
If you are a Practical Bride we recommend PRE-MADE BOUQUETS & BOUTONNIERES for your wedding day!
Maybe you have no idea what your actual bank balance is, but you have a general idea. Do you have a go with the flow mentality? Are you more about the meaning behind the day instead of the pomp and circumstance? Do you prefer flowy fabrics and flowers in your hair to fitted styles and perfectly manicured hairstyles and nails? You are certainly a free spirit boho bride. Stay true to your hippie spirit and have a relaxed, low key atmosphere to match your loving aura.
Does your day planner rule your world? Is your calendar color coded and meticulous in every single detail? Do your friends refer to your OCD tendencies frequently? You are the perfectionist bride. Your dress will fit perfectly and coordinate completely with the bridesmaids dresses. The entire bridal weekend will be planned out with an hour-by-hour itinerary, and the bridal party and guests will have no unanswered questions about what is happening next. Your day will be perfect because you won’t allow it to be anything else. You’ll be direct and to the point about it in a charming, professional kind of way.
Does everything always have to go your way? Does everyone lovingly tease you about being high maintenance and say you’re at your best when you’re the center of attention? Can your attitude change at the drop of a hat when you don’t get your way? You are most definitely in danger of becoming a bridezilla. Surround yourself with your best girls on your wedding journey. They know you and love you just the way they are, and they’ll be able to reel you back in when the ‘zilla starts to rear her ugly head.
The Bridezilla will appreciate stress-free wedding flowers, like premium ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS, for centerpieces and bouquets. These beauties won’t wilt or brown and stay forever fresh.
Have you been dreaming about your wedding day since you were a little girl? Do you have thousands of saved favorites on your Pinterest wedding board? Are you guilty of buying your own cubic zirconia ring and wearing it long before you met your groom so you could pretend to be engaged? Does your dream dress have more fluff than a bundle of cotton candy? You are the princess bride. You just want to wear your tiara and sparkle on your big day. You have a guest list as long as Santa’s naughty and nice list, and you will literally hug each and everyone of them for coming to celebrate with you.
Is your liquor cabinet stocked better than any club on the Vegas strip? Do you always have the music blasting and know how to drop it like it’s hot? Your theme song may be “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” You are the party bride. Your ceremony will be lovely, but quick and to the point so you can get to the fun at the reception. Can you say open bar? Prepare accordingly and be sure to budget more for the reception than the ceremony and honeymoon together.
Are you a pure girly girl? Are you all about the roses and lace? Is writing poetry a hobby of yours? Does candlelight provide your ideal ambiance? You are the classic romantic bride. Plan a more traditional wedding day with lots of flowers, lace, lights, and white doves to celebrate your ethereal perfect day.
No matter your bridal personality, enjoy this special time in your life. You want your day to match your personality, leaving your guests feeling your wedding was a reflection of you. You are creating a lifetime memory, so make the most of it, and make your wedding day as unique as you are!
