{Monday Eye Candy} Real Wedding: Grace + Mike’s Destination Wedding

I found this most amazing Real Wedding over at Green Wedding Shoes and I knew it was perfect for our Monday Eye Candy series. Mike and Grace are a truly gorgeous couple, choosing to be wed in an exceptionally gorgeous location. We really super {heart} this wedding.  Take a look for yourself.  And a big thanks to Green Wedding Shoes!

MIke and Grace's advice for those planning a destination wedding from Green Wedding Shoes
• Make a decision, stick with it, and move on. There are too many things to do while wedding planning and way too many choices. Indecisiveness and letting yourself fall into buyer’s remorse will be the death of you! Once you decide on something, don’t reconsider or doubt that you made the right choice. There is so much out there that you can always find something that may seem better and the more confused you will become. Be confident in your choices and move on.
• Be flexible and even more so for a destination wedding. Because so much work and preparation goes into wedding planning, it is easy to become obsessed with things going perfectly and according to plan. Be prepared that it won’t. During our wedding, there were endless situations and things that went awry. However, we went with the flow and tried not to let things bother us. It was the best thing we could have done. None of our guests noticed in the end, and we all had a great time nonetheless.
• All of our friends who had gotten married before us had warned us that the day would go by fast. Oh boy, were they right! It was such a blur, and it was all over before we knew it. As obvious as it sounds, really do try to enjoy every single second of it.
