No Doubt

Wedding planning is full of decisions. Big and small. Of little significance or importance and of incredible meaning. Essential and non-essential.

Some decisions are incredibly easy to make I don't even really think about it. And some decisions I stress over and debate and go back and forth on for days and even weeks (unfortunately).

It turns out some times even when a decision is made I still think about it second guessing myself. Did I make the right decision?

Up until a few weeks ago, I was wondering if my decision to not wear a veil was the right one for me. Would I feel like a bride without tulle draped from the top of my head? From the beginning, I have said I didn't want a veil. I don't really know why, just that it didn't really feel like me. And until my good friend Jennifer got married, I never even realized it was an option NOT to wear a veil. (Thanks for that Jenn!) For some reason though recently I had been thinking maybe I was wrong. I wasn't so convinced that I went out and bought a veil. But wonder I did.

The day of my bridal portraits was a perfect day. I had great time getting ready. Spending the morning with my mom and then my dad and sister joining us. The weather cooperated. I felt beautiful, blessed and bridal. Perfection. I have not felt more like a bride in this whole planning process so far than that day.

I guess there's a reason why people say to trust your gut.
