All about a feeling

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." - Maya Angelou

What an amazing quote! And a great sentiment to remember while wedding planning.

The quote could stand by itself because I don't think I'm eloquent or insightful enough to prose along side Maya Angelou. But this is what I'm aiming for in our wedding - a feeling. A feeling of love and commitment and community that is based on me and my darling but that pulls in our family and friends. The words, the decorations, and all the details are only accompanying and accomplices in this. I hope they will add to the atmosphere and add to the given beauty of the day, but in and of themselves they won't create my 'dream wedding'.

  1. The feelings are the most important part of a wedding. Very good quote to hang on to during the planning.

  2. So true.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, hope you'll be back!
