Thank you to all of the bees that have helped me along the way. I have recieved so much good insight from this site. Thank you all for helping me get there!
It was a success.
But my tips:
Practice your bustle. Mine didn’t work. It fell out. I had to carry my train all night.
Hire a day of coordinator (I was sooo glad not to be in charge)
Stop asking for people’s opinions and just make the decisions before the wedding. If people don’t know there is an option, you won’t offend them.
Maybe don’t go on an adventure honeymoon after the wedding. We went to Macchu Picchu and did the trek (or at least I did, my husband quit on day two). We should have just vegged out at a fancy hotel for about three nights somewhere close.

Congratulations and Best Wishes! Thanks for the tips 🙂 How does it feel, being on the ‘other side’ of the wedding? 🙂

Sooo good. I miss having a purpose on the boards. Now I guess I will just offer opinions/advice to the bees on the road to marriage. It feels like graduation or something.
Any other married bees have tips? Please post.

Congrats, great tips! I wish I wouldve practiced my bustle – I had some girls help because we were in a rush and they didnt tie it right so it kept falling down a little. My mom was following me around with pins all night trying to pin it so I didnt step on it 🙂
I also agree with the lazy honeymoon – we went to Domincian Republic and did nothing but hang out at the hotel for 9 days, by the pool and the beach. It was so relaxing and great not to be on a schedule.

I agree about having a relaxing honeymoon…we had an exciting trip through the Mediterranean, but we were exhausted when we got back. Looking back it would have been better to go somewhere where we could have just relaxed. 🙂

Now that it is all said and done, I totally agree with the day of coordination. I felt like I was being pulled in 20 directions and everyone wanted/needed me to do something different. The reception is all a blur and I did not enjoy it. I did not even get to eat any of my cake except the one bite when we cut it.

Your last tip about the honeymoon has inspired a conversation with my FI on what we should do. We originally wanted to bike the Tatras, but I didn’t think of how tired we’re probably feel after a week of organizing, stress, and hosting. Thanks for the insight!
