Advice from Real Brides

“Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things I have ever done. The best advice I can give is don’t try to please everyone, do what will make you happy when you look back on this day. Also, don’t sweat the small stuff. There will be a few things that don’t go right on the big day, so just try and go with the flow and have a good time!” —Allison H

“The two best tips I received was that no one else knows what you wanted to plan so if it doesn’t happen it’s OK because no one knows it was supposed to happen and at the end of the day the only thing that matters is that you get to marry your best friend. Enjoy it all and don’t let the little things hold you down!” —Mandy J

“Soak it up! I paid way too much for a veil and then forgot to put it on for the ceremony. These things happen and you won’t care in the moment, you will just be floating and enjoying the moment.” —Erin M

“Make your wedding about you and your groom. Everyone loves to chime in with their ideas, but it’s really about you two. When all of the glitz and glamour is done, and your special day is over, it will just be you and your new husband.” —Erin R

“We planned every second of the day, and were ONLY worried about poor weather. Guess what? It was supposed to be a gorgeous fall day, and instead, it was freezing, it poured and hailed. But, it was still the most beautiful day. Truly try to enjoy every moment, and keep in perspective that it’s just the first of the rest of your very best days.” —Cait B

“Enjoy the process and start early! Plan for extra expenses and don’t take it too seriously. At the end of the day, no matter what goes wrong (and something will), you will be married to your best friend.” —Remington J
