Here's Your Wedding Planning Pep Talk...

I created Authentic Bride Guide because I have a no BS approach when it comes to weddings: It’s you and your fiance’s day. Not anybody else’s. 

This site exists to encourage and motivate engaged couples to plan a wedding that reflects the style and personality of their relationship, without feeling pressured to follow outdated traditions they don’t like. #theoldrulesdontapplyanymore

The best part? I’m going to help you do it on a budget.

I’ll constantly encourage your authenticity to shine bright.

You deserve to have a wedding that reflects YOU (even if someone else is helping foot the bill). 

After all, this is #notyourmotherswedding
