Always the wedding planner, never the bride!
Always the wedding planner, never the bride! Julianne was looking for a simple elopement gown but humored her mother by putting on the ball gown she’d always imagined for her daughter.
Wedding planner Julianne has finally decided to get married! See how this wedding planner planned her own wedding! This is really different than your ordinary wedding. Find out why she is not having the normal wedding everybody else is having. Here is her story.
We’re just going to fly to Estes Park, Colorado, and get married in Rocky Mountain National Park. We are eloping. Just the two of us. We’re trying to make the best of it, concentrate on the positive and the parts we can share. It is a bittersweet moment.
Julianne is a wedding planner and has been to a ton of weddings. She has seen the drama that goes on behind the scenes, and she doesn’t really want to be the center of attention on her wedding day! This is why she and her groom to-be decided to get married alone. Her fiancé also has always said that he was never gonna have a wedding. She really just want it to be about him and her and what they stand for. She met her fiancé when they were in middle school, but they really didn’t become close until college, and then finally in her junior year he got up the nerve to ask her on a date, and they have been dating ever since.
For her dress Julianne is also not looking for anything too over-the-top, so definitely not a ball gown. She really doesn’t love the bling. Her budget is a small $3,000. This is not what you would expect to be a wedding planner’s wedding budget or even a wedding planner’s wedding, but maybe if you have the same experience and gone through all the drama they have, even you too would like to have a small, quiet and a low budget wedding!
The most important thing ofcourse is that she is happily married to the one she loves. And for a low budget dress, it looks stunning!
