There are a lot of things in life that really just come down to personal preference. The foods that people like to eat, the movies they watch, and the clothes they wear are definitely things that people make their own decisions about based on their own taste. Some people have really good taste and always pick out the best movies to watch or wear the most amazingly stylish outfits. It's so easy to look up to these people for fashion inspiration or to take their advice for the coolest bands to check out or movies to watch.
Something else that comes down to a matter of personal preference and taste is a person's wedding. A wedding is a really personal event that people spend a lot of time planning to make sure that it really fits their vision and represents who they are as a couple. Even before someone gets engaged and has a wedding to actually plan, many people imagine what their dream wedding would be like if they were going to be planning one right now. Some weddings that we see in pictures on social media are just decorated so nicely that it's obvious the person getting married has excellent taste.
Plan a dream wedding and we'll reveal who has good taste!
One dress or multiple dresses?
Picking out the perfect wedding dress is definitely important for any bride-to-be! Many brides try on quite a few dresses before they find the one that they're going to be wearing when they walk down the aisle. But depending on the style of dress, they can be heavy or difficult to really walk and dance in. Because of this, many brides choose to pick out another dress that they wear during the reception and change into after they exchange their vows.
Invite a lot of people?
Inviting other people to your wedding is definitely one of the most important parts of the big day! A wedding is totally focused on the happy couple but it's also a day for their friends and family to spend time with them. Couples have to really make some decisions when it comes to finalizing their guest list and one major thing they've got to decide is how many people will be coming to their wedding! They have to decide whether they'll invite a lot of people or just those closest to them.
Say "yes" to this wedding dress?
There are many dresses that are really simple from the top to the bottom and others that are totally the opposite and heavily detailed all the way along the dress. This wedding dress is one that combines those two looks! The top half is completely made up of floral lace and has a high neckline and long sleeves that are super detailed. Meanwhile, the bottom half is flowy and made of plain, white fabric to really balance out the dress.
Pick a season to get married in.
When it comes to planning a wedding, there are some things that are definitely more important to figure out soon than others. While picking things like the cake and the flowers can wait a little while, picking things like the season that you're going to be getting married in. Picking things like that has to be done before you can plan anything else like finding decorations, a theme, or even a venue in which you're going to be getting married!
Have a white dress or a colorful one?
We all know that a white dress is definitely the traditional choice for a bride-to-be on her wedding day. When most people think of a wedding dress, they think of a white dress. Some of them can be really simple and smooth while others can have a lot of intricate lace and beading. The kind of dress that a person wants really depends on the person! But there are some people that want to be different and choose a colorful one instead.
Plan it all alone or hire help?
Planning a wedding is a lot of work! Although there are many brides-to-be that definitely have no problem with handling a lot of the planning by themselves, we can't deny that that's quite a task to take on.

Love or leave this engagement ring?

Before a happy couple can start planning their wedding, they actually have to get engaged! Some couples choose to stay engaged for quite a long time and take their time planning their wedding.
