Going with the flow


Speaking with the lovely brides who are featured in the pages of Elegant Bride, I'm amazed at how calm they seem when we rehash the ins and outs of their weddings, sometimes just weeks after the big day. Mishaps like a downpour, dress drama, a nervous stomach or forgetting to put on jewelry are not that significant in retrospect. While each one may have agonized over every little detail during the planning process, once the wedding is over only the sweetest memories stand out: the dreamy look in her husband's eyes during the ceremony, the friends and family who traveled far to share in the celebration, or the gown that in the end, proved to be perfect. The lesson learned? Don't sweat the small stuff, and think about the big picture that you and your guests will fondly remember—rain or shine. —Brooke Showell, senior associate features editor, Elegant Bride
