In this blog post, we'll hear from a bride who prioritized simplicity and elegance for her big day. Although things didn't go perfectly according to plan, she encourages future brides to focus on enjoying the process and simplifying decision-making. Keep reading for her insights and tips on how to have a stress-free wedding.

Carly looked beautiful in our Lindsey gown by LAmour. This is a fit-and-flare gown that highlights ones curves and figure. Gorgeous floral lace appliqu├ęs are scattered throughout the skirt and a beautiful layer of glitter tulle underneath adds the perfect amount of sparkle. The unlined bodice accentuates the waist while dainty beaded straps fade into a beautiful low back and a gorgeous train.

By our real bride, Carly:

What was the vision for your wedding?

I wanted my wedding to be simple and elegant. I wanted to bring some winter colors into it but keep it very minimalistic at the same time. I didnt have a theme really at all!

How did it go the day-of?

Lots of things went wrong the day-of, and there was honestly a lot of chaos. It can be very easy to focus on what didnt go perfectly as planned, but its important to remember that nothing will ever go perfectly. Its about taking everything in and making sure you let yourself enjoy every step of the process!

What is your #1 tip for future brides?

Dont stress yourself out!! Its important to actually enjoy every step of the wedding planning process! I see so many brides get so stressed during planning and just want the day to be over by the end of it. My suggestion is to not give yourself too many decisions and simplify everything!
