When discussing wedding details leading up to a bride’s day, I like to ask silly questions about the planning process that actually has nothing to do with their day, but also allows the bride to tell me about how she hopes the day will go. One of these questions is, if they have any tips for future brides… Here is what some of them had to say :
Carli : Cherish every moment of the process and the road leading up to the wedding. Some parts are stressful but it’s all GOOD STRESS!!
Erica : When people offer to do stuff for you in regards to the little details – let them! I definitely took a while to start doing this because I felt guilty making them spend so much time on my wedding – because well, it is my wedding – when it comes down to it though, there are too many things to do on your own and it makes something that should be fun overly stressful.
Katie : Remember this is your day, if it makes you happy and you will remember it. Do it.
Rachel : I have a few tips! My first tip is if you have long hair and wear it down, comb it during parts of the reception if you can!!! It was windy, I got sweaty, and my hair was one big giant dread the next day! LOL! ? My next tip is to pause during the dancing and the fun and look around and watch everyone. It’s a beautiful and emotional moment to see that all those people are there having fun and celebrating you! It was cool to watch them laughing and dancing and having the time of their lives all because of you and your significant other! Finally, it’s okay to ask for help and to speak up for yourself if something is not going as planned!!! It is your day it should be perfect!!
McKenzie : Enjoy the process. Please do what makes you and your fiancé happy!
Cassidy : Bust out all of your big ticket items early; venue, catering, photographer. That way when the big day comes it won’t be too stressful! Also pay for the experience! You HAVE to take into account your time and energy. Do you want to spend your wedding morning stressing and decorating a venue, or would you rather have someone else do it while you hang out with your girls and get ready? I know money can be tight, but it is totally worth it to have a good experience and enjoyable day.
Carlie : Relax and enjoy the process. Not everything has to be perfect. You are going to be the only one who knows if the day isn’t exactly as you planned. Your friends and family will be there to support you and your significant other’s love for one another. They aren’t going to remember all the small details. Remembering that makes the wedding process that much more fun!
Kylee : So many people told me to let others help and to delegate tasks to them. I wish I would have listened earlier and not before the wedding. The amount of stress that you have a couple months before the wedding is insane, make check lists and only do a couple things each day.
Camryn : Don’t stress! Everything falls together perfectly.
Ruby : Accept any and all help you can get! When you’re deciding on bridal party, make sure you have chosen people that will support and help you out as much as possible! This is YOUR time!
Emily : When planning for your wedding, take it day by day. If you look at the big picture it can get overwhelming.
