The photographer told me about 2 minutes into the day “Soft smile all the time, or it’s going to look like you’re angry”. Not just true for photos, also for nerves! On the day of, don’t let em see your smile falter and it’ll all go fine.

I didnt really get any advice but one I can leave you is to make him feel everyday like the first time you guys fell in love. It works for me

Stick together during the reception.( bride and groom) That way you have the same memories and can fill in where one of you doesn’t remember.

I saw this on Pinterest, “A wedding is a party, not a performance. If at the end of the day you are married to the one you love, then everything went perfectly.” I think that last sentence will also translate into my married life as well.

I repeated the line “Don’t let the details get bigger than the purpose” over and over.  At the end of the day, all I needed was to end up married.

Not married yet (I was checking for good advice!) but I saw this a few days ago and it seems like a really good idea:

“Someone told me to have the time told to me frequently thru out the day and night, that way time doesn’t disappear too much during your big day… It seemed to help me remember to live in the moment.” – Shanna

My wedding planner said “Sometimes more is not better. Sometimes it’s just more.” this advice saved me time, $$, stress, & anxiety!

If there are 10 things you MUST have, rethink it to 3-5 and dial down the rest. For me it was the dress, food, photography and venue – those were the must haves. I scaled back or eliminated the others and the stress as well!
