Weddings have a way of opening the floor for every second cousin, mother-in-law and friend-of-a-friend to chime in with opinions about how they think the day should go. But this is not open mic night; hearing other people’s opinions can be incredibly stressful and distracting. Not only does it make you second guess your own decisions, but it requires a lot of energy to tastefully decline them all.

This is a problem many of you had – and we hear you. That’s why we came up with a list of 11 things that the bride and only the bride should have final say on–no ifs ands or buts. If you want to serve red cupcakes while wearing a pink dress, then it is written. It’s rare in life to get a day that you can plan however you’d like, with a big budget and all your friends and family in attendance, so cherish these decisions and the process of making them. And tell everyone they can bugger off if they don’t agree. #sorryimnotsorry

Realistically, though, the only wedding advice you should listen to is ours. Especially when it comes to buying a dress, picking a venue and staying away from Pinterest cliches.
