Miranda began the wedding planning process before they were even engaged. She kept track of fun ideas and trends on her dream wedding Pinterest board. The style she envisioned for the big day was a rustic, shabby chic wedding dream. Once things were official and she had a ring on her finger, they decided together to have a long engagement and spend about 2.5 years basking in engagement glory and planning at their own pace.
Miranda’s wedding day look emerged from an amazing event held by Angeliques Bridal. Alex is a Sergeant in the National guard, so the couple was able to participate in the Angeliques Bridal Military Extravaganza in 2014. Miranda was the third bride in line for the event and she walked out with the third dress she tried on! As for the bridesmaid’s dresses, Miranda was pretty easy going and left the decision up to them. They landed on a refreshing yellow color. Alex wore a beige colored vest and pants while the groomsmen accompanied him in a similar style but in a grey color.
“I would suggest to just breath, and it will all work out in the end. Don’t plan too much on the decorations, no one is going to remember those little details, anyhow. On the day of your wedding, remember to take a moment for just you and your Husband.. to reflect on the day, for it goes by way too fast. Also, don’t stress on the little things on the day of your wedding.. whatever happens, happens. When you look back on your wedding, you’ll remember the big picture and how much of a blessing it was, to have so many people share in such a special moment in your life!”
