My husband and I recently celebrated our six year wedding anniversary. As I was looking through pictures and videos from that weekend, I began thinking about things I am so thankful we did. I thought I would share those today and would love to know anything you are thankful for from your wedding day or weekend!

1.All The Girls Together
Since my husband and I got married down the road from my parent’s house my bridal and house party all stayed at their house Thursday & Friday night. I am so thankful we were able to spend that time together and that my parent’s had the space for everyone!
2. Bridal Lunch
I know not everyone wants a bridal lunch the day before, however I am so glad my mom hosted one. Once again it was at my parents, so most girls were there aside from family and close family friends who joined.
Our venue typically hosted the ceremony and reception, however my husband and I are pretty traditional and really wanted our ceremony in a church. I am so happy we went that route and were indoors. Texas summers are no joke when it comes to the heat!
4.Parents In Ceremony
We really wanted all four of our parents to have a part in the actual ceremony so we asked both moms to read a scripture and my father in law to play a song on the guitar. My dad walked me down the aisle. I am so thankful they were all a part of it.
5.No First Look
This is not a popular opinion, but I am still thankful we did not do a first look. Although I absolutely love them for other people and think they are amazing, we wanted a more traditional approach. I think there is something so special about your soon to be husband seeing you for the first time walking down the aisle.
Looking back I realize that the details people can easily get caught up in truly don’t matter. People remember the feeling and energy from that day/weekend which is what is most important!
As always, sending light and love!
