@PurpleLonghorn:  On that note, one last piece of advice, do not book your honeymoon flight the day after your wedding! Give yourself a day to relax, recover, and touch base with your family and close friends post wedding.


I’ve been struggling with when we should leave – on the fourth or on the fifth and your post finally made me settle on the fifth. I do want to have one more day with family and friends before heading out! Thanks!

@PurpleLonghorn:  Definitely not a “silly tip” because one BTB benefited from it..me! Thank you! 

Instead of a first look we are going to do our first half hour of wedding shots alone.  This way we have a moment right after to gush over the ceremony in private – well semi private because we will have our photographer on hand =) But I’m traditional sense that I don’t want him to see me before the doors open and I walk down the aisle.

Thanks for the tip about the first look, we have been debating this and to realize that is really the only time for just us makes it that much more appealing.

Great tips! And I 100% agree about taking as few people with you dress shopping as you can. I shopped for 3 months, and in the end, the last shopping trip I went alone and fell in LOVE with a dress and bought it on the spot. With other people there I agonized over what I wanted, was swayed by other’s opinions, and worstly, I felt anxious about wasting everyone’s time if I didn’t find THE dress.

Seriously – if you can handle it, and are an anxious person like me, go by yourself, or take just ONE person that you absolutely trust and is supportive of what makes you HAPPY, not what they want. I’m fortunate enough to have a best friend who knows me, my style, and knows when to speak up or shut-up and it makes a world of difference. Even if you are a girl that isn’t normally fussy about her clothes, you’ll be surprised how opinionated you become when you’re picking a wedding dress. I was FLOORED by my own reactions to what I liked/didn’t like, and how adamant I was about certain aspects.

This is all so great. Thank you for the advice.

 

I have seen brides and grooms do a “First Look” before, but thought it wasn’t for me. But now, because of your sage advice, I’m wondering if it is something we should do. Hmm, food for thought. I will have to talk to Fiance about it tonight (even though, just like one of your other points eluded to, I’m sure he’ll just say something like “I don’t care, whatever you want”)!

@PurpleLonghorn:  Spoke w/FI about the first look… he’s not into it. His words: “I don’t want some crazy curse to be put on our marriage, because I saw you before you walked down the aisle.” Lol, I’m a little disappointed, but the bright side is I realized how seriously he’s taking marrying me Tongue Out
