I wish I would have at least hired a day of coordinator. But our venue gave us a ceremony coordinator and a maitre’d and I thought it would be fine. But I gave them laid out plans of how I wanted the reception to look and there were a bunch of mess ups.
I would have hired my own photographer instead using the photographer that my dad gave us a gift. I didn’t like the pictures or the photographer’s style and so many pictures were missed that we would have liked.
I would have done my own hair and makeup. I hated the way my hair and makeup came out. Every trial I went to, I was never satisfied but just settled in the end with a place that a really good reputation and was famous. Well apparently, the stylist didn’t know how to braid but didn’t say anything. I asked for a french braid that wrapped around the back of my head and went into a side chignon. Well it definitely wasn’t a braid and it was too late to fix it. My makeup wasn’t dramatic enough either but that’s my fault because I wanted it to be more natural originally. That was a mistake.
