HELLO THERE:

  • Welcome to Kiss My Tulle, where the weddings are big but the budgets are small. I'm Cris Stone and I live in San Antonio, Texas (by way of Salcha, Alaska) with my new husband (The Boy), our baby girl (Melanie), puppy (Hank), and cat (Caira).

    I'm excited to share my ideas on creating the wedding of your dreams on an affordable budget.

This is fantastic and has lessons for all brides, whether you're officially diagnosed with something or not you should do what's comfortable for you! We just ran a story about a wedding where the mother tried to force the bride out of her anxiety and it wound up with the bride throwing up in the bathroom.

Cris, I love this post! I will keep all your advice in mind for the future. I'm so glad you were able to work around your SAD and have a beautiful day.

Adrienne O'Connor, Ruffles & Tweed

Such a great post - congrats on a beautiful wedding and on being able to share this with the world - I'm sure it will definitely help other brides in similar situations!

Sarah {A Paper Proposal}

Such a great, unique post and blog series. Thank you so much for sharing your personal experience with all of us!

Thanks all! SAD's a bitch but I made it (with TONS of help from The Boy, me 'maids, and my awesome DOC coordinator!).

What an honest, heartfelt post. Thank you for sharing that. Forever by the Dropkick Murphys was our closing song at the reception!

KQD - Freaking LOVE that song!

I feel like I could have written this! I also deal with anxiety and when I got married 2 years ago my BIGGEST issue was the idea that everyone was looking at ME all day long. My husband and I laugh looking back at the pictures because even though I'm smiling in all my candid shots, I'm also wringing my hands in nervousness.

I did exactly what you did. No first dance. No toasts. No bouquet toss. And we cut the cake RIGHT when we got to the reception (and half the people didn't even realize we had done it).

KissMyTulle

Meg,

How funny that our SAD wedding lists were almost the same! In almost all my photos, I'm hanging on to him or clutching my bouquet!
