It's my wedding and I'll vent if I want to

Blazer: Dynamite, Top: Felicee, Leggings: Aritzia, Boots: Gojane
I never realized planning a destination wedding would take so much out of you emotionally. From the melt downs that people have when you tell them where you're having it (guilt), to trying to decide who to invite (and who you have to leave behind - guilt), then having to hear that people can't make it (at the very last moment non the less). It's not a nice feeling. For one, why wouldn't people make the necessary sacrifices to make such an important day when you know you'd do the same for them?  Is this selfish of me to say? Some I can understand not being able to make it, others I just cannot. And it hurts. It hurts because I know if they tried they could have. 
You see, B and I have always known we wanted to get married in Maui. Even before we were engaged. This is our dream wedding. We've dreamed about it for years. And now it's finally going to happen. I just wish people could be as excited as we are about it instead of making excuses. 
We have a great group coming. And I'm so grateful for the friends and family who are doing whatever it takes to make it a special day for us. Even when I know they are having a tough time. They mean the world to us and we will be forever grateful.

It's been that kind of a day.


  1. Aw, I'm sorry girl. Its days like these where you realize who would go the farthest for you.
    Glad you've still got great friends though! They're who'll pick you up and carry you through.
    Congrats too on your wedding! :) Wow, Maui <3 That's going to be amazing!
    Also, cute outfit. Your top is super adorable. Love the lace and stripes mixed together

  2. Destination weddings are tricky. I'm sorry that it's causing stress. Just focus on your fiance and it'll all work out.


  3. Your hair is SO cute! And while a destination wedding DOES sound like a ton of work, it also will be much worth it in the end. Everything will work itself out! xo

  7. i can't imagine the stress. just keep thinking that the day is all about you and your husband, and as long as you are happy together, then the day will be a success regardless of who can or can't make it. i know...easier said than done.
