It’s a few weeks after the wedding and I must thank you all for all the advice and guidance along the way. I will definitely miss planning our wedding and all the anticipation and excitement that we felt in our year-long engagement. So, take it all in and enjoy every minute of it!
Before our wedding – even though we didn’t spend a fortune, we often had the feeling that we were wasting our money on certain things or putting too much effort into projects, since “no one but us would notice those details”, but boy were we wrong! From the minute I got to our venue and hid away from my groom before the ceremony, guests and our wedding party & families were already complimenting me on all the little details that went into beautifying and personalizing our venue for our day! Even throughout the night as we spoke with guests, so so many of them pointed out the little things that they noticed and loved and told us that all the love and work that we put into the planning definitely showed and they all felt so welcomed and had a great time! Even now, weeks after the wedding, our guests are still telling us of how great of a time they had! Not only did our guests enjoy themselves, we had fun too! It was such a great feeling having all those people we grew up with and love so much to be there to celebrate our love for each other. Our level of happiness on our wedding day is really indescribable, but I’ll tell you – every dollar spent and every second spent with my groom and friends and family making things were all worth it. It’s not just one day – it’s a lifetime of memories.
My advice is to enjoy every second of the planning cause your wedding memories start from the moment you got engaged and don’t end until you get back from your honeymoon. Invest in an awesome photographer & videographer – I promise you won’t regret it! All the little irritations and arguments are not worth it – somehow things always fall into place and if they don’t, they’ll fit in a way that you’ll grow to love.
Have fun planning your weddings bees – I hope you all enjoy your wedding day as much as we did!!
