The best wedding planning advice from past Brides!

May 09, 2019

You know, no-one ever tells you that there is no perfect way to plan your wedding. As helpful as bridal magazines, Pinterest and The Knot can be, sometimes you just need to hear from someone who has been in your shoes! Who understands how overwhelming planning your dream wedding is. So we asked some of the lovely past brides we know, what was the best piece of advice they could offer to all of you out there planning and this what they said:


  • "I almost wish I would have had a completely different photo session for Brandon and I. Maybe when we got back from our honeymoon? I feel like the day of I felt rushed and stressed and I would have loved to get dressed up again and just have a some stress free time to devote to pictures of just us." - Casey


  • "Do not use family to coordinate the day of. They should also be able to enjoy the day without any responsibilities!" - Rebekah


  • "It doesn’t matter if things go “right” the day of. No one else will know but you and stressing about it takes the fun out of it." - Nikki


  • "Don’t worry about what anyone thinks! Focus on what you and your husband want and do exactly that. It’s your day!" - Michelle


  • "Let other people take care of as many of the details as possible! Hire a day of coordinator at least! The only thing you should be thinking about on wedding day is how much fun your going to have" - Mary


  • "Book y'all for wedding photography!" - Kate (Couldn't resist including this one!)


  • "Let it happen. It might not be exactly as you planned it and things can go wrong(my mother in law forgot the cake which was dessert at the rehearsal dinner). You will be joyously married at the end of the celebration and will have tales to tell for long as you commit to it every single day." - Carol
