Can You Dance In Your Dress?
From the Bride: I wish I would've gone with my original desire to wear a dress that had some sort of straps or overlay on the top. While I LOVED the way my dress looked, it just wasn't as comfortable as I would've liked on the big day, and I found myself tugging a lot when dancing.
Start Planning Now
Start early on décor decisions. While I got the major decisions out of the way as soon as we were engaged, I kept thinking that I had plenty of time to make the small decisions. Big lesson learned, with all that goes on in your day-to-day life, the date will definitely creep up on you!
Oh, and don't accidentally put your cell phone in the washing machine two weeks before the big day. Thank goodness I had emailed myself my vows beforehand!
You bet they had a sweetheart table. Complete with gold Mr. and Mrs. painted letters that head their table and handmade bride and groom signs that hung on their chairs. Adorable.
Make It Memorable With DIYs
I knew that I wanted our wedding to be heavy on diy, so I didn’t hesitate to hand-make everything I possibly could—the stationary, floral napkins, signage, my bridal accessories, and even our cake topper (my favorite diy item!) to name a few. I love crafting things and I loved that I could make that a big part of our day.
