“I am a princess and I want to go to bed!”

You are a princess.

We are all princesses. But, as a bride, you feel you need to be the most princessy princess of all, right?

I defy any bride to NOT want to feel, in herself, incredibly special, and there is no better way of doing this than with a perfectly princessy dress. And shoes. And hair. And teeth. And veil. And underwear. And shoes. And jewellery. And make-up. And skin. And nails. And figure.

I worried about all of these things. I worried that if, in any way, these ‘oh so important’ things were not perfect, MY day would not be perfect. I worried that if, in any way, I did not achieve and maintain ultimate, lasting beauty in each of these areas, I would (p)regret it.

I want to tell you so much about this. I want you to know how my perception was challenged and changed. I want you to share in what i learned. And I will.

But, for now, let’s just look at this.

Letting it go...

Letting it go…

This photo was taken at the end of the night. And, do you know what? I don’t care. I am having fun.

My sister recalls me sitting (in this state) pulling out my hair grips whilst stating, “I am a princess and I want to go to bed!”

I don’t think I was truly a princess until that point.

As Elsa once said, “let it go!”
