Y’all, this summer will mark lucky number S-E-V-E-N years of marriage for Taylor and I, and I still get butterflies when I come across a good short engagement story! Hearing the unique ways the Lord works to bring two people together never ceases to amaze me. Saley contacted me through our website with the sweetest message a while ago, and as soon as I read a teaser of her story, I knew we had to share it on the blog.
Yes, Taylor and I planned our wedding in 4.5 months—but just because we were on board shortening our engagement didn't mean that we were okay with compromising the quality of our wedding. And when I say quality, I'm not necessarily talking about the bells and whistles (i.e. the flowers and cake—although, yeah, we wanted those to be beautiful/delicious too). I'm really talking about the emotional and spiritual aspects of our wedding day.
Scratch that. The title should actually read, 6 Tips for Finding a Wedding Dress YOU LOVE in 6 Months or Less. You heard it here first, ladies. Planning a wedding in 6 months or lessdoesn't mean that you have to settle for a wedding gown that's just so-so.
