S3 EP7 // Comparison is the thief of self worth ROCK MY WEDDING // THE PODCAST

    • Society & Culture

They say that comparison is the thief of joy which we totally agree with but when it comes to weddings, we feel like it can be the thief of self worth.



We are continually bombarded with images of perfection. from the shiny curated grids we see on Instagram to alleged "reality" TV. This notion of perfection and changing yourself to fit a certain mould is prevalent on every social media platform all day every day. We all know that perfection doesn't exist and striving to meet someone elses vision of perfect, especially for your wedding day is down right unhealthy. We want to talk to you about loving yourself. If you want to make aesthetic changes to yourself thats absolutely fine but we want you to know the risks involved and we want you to know that for one day - it's possibly not worth it. You're making a commitment for life when you enter into a marriage and any changes you decide to undertake should be for exactly that. For a life of growing old with your partner who loves you exactly the way you are.



This episode isn't all about aesthetics, its about personality too. It's about having the day you want and not being swayed by wedding trends because you think you should and your bridesmaid really likes the idea of you having a massive floral moongate because she 'saw it on Pinterest and everyone has one these days' meanwhile you don't have Pinterest and what the heck is a moongate?! Follow your heart, follow your style and your day will be perfect.



We should mention that we realise our Instagram feed, website and Pinterest are full to the brim of all sorts of wedding inspiration. Some which we realise people might find daunting; out of their budgets; entirely unrealistic perhaps. But we strive to share a real eclectic mix of weddings for those with budgets from 500 quid to 50 grand. We're not here to make judgements on peoples preferences, we just want to share as much as we can to help inspire you and bring out your personalities and inject them into your wedding days.



We never want any couple to think that they aren't worthy and that they can't possibly live up to this bonkers world of Instagram perfect weddings. We've said it before and we'll continue to say it; all the imperfections are what lead to an utterly perfect day.



You are all amazing. Style is entirely subjective so what suits one couple wont suit another and thats fine. As long as you are in love and you're saying your I Do's for the right reason then that is all you will ever need.



Disclaimer: We love pampas grass - we're just too creatively inept to make them work - if you are too but love them, get yourself an amazing florist from The List to make your dreams come true.



Check out the show notes page to see couples who really had their days their way and let their personalities and personal style sine through.
