Hello there 🙂
There is no doubt that the engagement time is a magical time for each couple – full of celebratory events, excitement, happiness and love. But while wedding planning is certainly exciting, it can also be extremely stressful. I'm sure other brides will agree with me when I say that the pressure, time, emotional and financial stress you experience can often be very heavy and distressing. I know that I felt a roller coaster ride of emotions myself when I was planning my own wedding. I began to question every one of my choices, from my dress style to the smallest details of the place setting. I put a lot of pressure on myself and felt so involved in trying to please everyone else around me. Suffice to say, as I planned, I appreciated and appreciated the advice, tips, regrets and must-dos of brides who had already gone through the process.
Today, we wanted to share some tips from brides in our own Who What Wear office – hoping that they will give helpful insights to future brides when planning their big day. Scroll down from advice on shopping for wedding dresses to tips on how to stay healthy through the madness. Eight Who What Wear brides share their wedding planning and tell what they have learned on their journey.
"No matter how comfortable your wedding shoes are, it's really important to have multiple backup pairs, because after spending hours standing for photos and then dancing, even apartments can be uncomfortable and painful."
Msgstr "Do you have several pairs that you want to change into this day / night, but Not Do not worry about how they look or whether they are "bride" enough, because at the end of the day no one will see them if you wear a floor-length dress and you want to feel comfortable on your wedding day actually have fun. "
"Either plan your big honeymoon right after, or at least go to a little moon, do not go straight back to work and reality, you've planned so long, and now it's time to relax and do everything with your spouse arrange." You will never be back at such a natural wedding, so enjoy it! "
"It's your wedding and you should enjoy the band or DJ you have chosen forever, enjoy it! Spend time on the dance floor and let the wedding guests come to you! Trust me, that your wedding day will be so quick Going by that you do nothing. " I do not want to miss everything you have planned. "
"If there's room in your budget, I'd advise a wedding coordinator – at least for the month – to put together the wedding day schedule, coordinate with the salespeople, and be there on your wedding day to ensure a smooth process in a different state, which makes the planning more difficult, and it was a great relief to have a local coordinator who deals with all the madness at the last minute it is worthwhile to be supported by an expert throughout the planning process. "
"We did it before the wedding and the schedule was pretty tight, which definitely caused some stress, it would have been nice to have done it after the ceremony, but it was more important for us to be able to maximize the time spent so, morally I'm glad we took some photos before the ceremony, but make sure the photographer has time to take the shots he or she needs and that she'll take a breather before the ceremony. "
"My husband and I had a very untraditional one wedding, I hate being the center of attention, so we formed an immediate family for the ceremony. No bridal party, just a maid of honor and a best man. I wanted to marry in a backyard, so we got married in John Lennon's old house in Hollywood Hills. My husband is a musician, that was a big plus. We wanted to have a big party instead of a formal reception, so we invited 100 of our closest family members and friends and rented a loft in downtown LA. We had a taco type, loads of desserts, lots of wine and beer, the right DJ who played all the music we loved, danced and just had a good time. While our parents supported our decisions, there were moments in which we had to defend ourselves … and I'm so thankful that we did that! "
"We had four months to plan our project weddingWhile I was in bliss, I also had waves of emotions that I could not express aloud. The people around me kept saying how excited and happy I had to be to marry, and so I felt guilty and isolated. It was only when I finally spoke to my married friends that I felt that I had learned that they felt the same way they did before their marriage. You will have so many emotions that will come to the fore, and some will not be good, but you are not alone! And when you finally arrive on the special day, it's all worth it. "
"There is a lot of pressure to meet the guests, but your wedding is about you and your partner, and many people will have opinions on what you should do, but do not let that interfere with your vision."
"Not everything will go according to plan, and that's fine, and if you count on it, you'll be better prepared for surprises, it's more important to be present than annoyed (even if only for a brief moment), because the Centerpieces were not exactly what you wanted, the truth is that none of the guests will even know it. "
"It's important to find out what's important to you and what you want to invest in (with your fiancé), for example, we've decided that having a great live band and incredible food is what we love about weddings I knew the flowers, cakes, and gown did not have to cost a fortune to look great, for example, we used palm leaves for each table decoration and made the thank you notes by hand (mini-succulents for each guest) to keep things simple. "
"Even if you have a vision, you can still get your fiancé to work with VERY specific projects, such as" Collect rates for bands in LA so we can compare costs "or" Add your Groomsmen images and add a little blurb to the website of. "Next Tuesday. & # 39; I strongly recommend setting due dates for all projects if you want them to actually get done, if you are taking some of the tasks out of your plate (especially those that do not interest you too much) reduced part of the planning stress. "
"That does not mean that you do not enjoy trying on clothes with your entourage! I had the best time to do this with my mother, my sister and my closest friends – champagne in my hand! And I encourage everyone to join this Event, but I think you can get confused when everyone voices their opinion on your wedding dress, even the slightest expression on someone else's face can distort your choices – I've gone to several boutiques on my own to try on clothes – where others think but my own did not matter, it gave me clarity about what I really wanted. "
"I made this mistake right at the beginning of my search for a wedding dress and was deeply disappointed when I fell in love with a $ 10K dress that I ultimately could not buy." These designer dresses are beautiful to look at, but when they exceed your budget, then you do not risk destroying your hopes! "
"This will be one of the most important decisions you make during the planning process, so make sure you find one that holds your chemistry as a couple and fits the style you want, and it's important that you have one Find a photographer you can connect to. " on a personal level! These people are responsible for capturing the special moments and magic of the day and their lenses will make you remember everything! Oh, and add a videographer! "
"It's a joke, how expensive some of these items can be." "Pie Cut Set?" We ordered one at Amazon for $ 10 and varnished the handles to match the theme. Looked just as good as his $ 100 counterpart Tree Garter Set? Amazon, $ 15. Hairpiece? Amazon! You'll NEVER use much of it again, so choose what you feel like. "
