I think the one thing I learned when I got married that is really hard for brides-to-be to realize is that it’s just one day and it only gets better that the months roll on after your wedding. 🙂

But I’ve also learned not to let people{except your FI}influence your decisions. I let my family convince me to get married in Hawaii then after I realized that I didn’t want to do that, we eloped and I hated it. Now we’re renewing our vows 7 years later, so hopefully this time I’ll do it my way.

I just had my wedding a week and a half ago and I learned something very important that I wish others had stressed to me:  Relax and have fun…your guests ARE having a good time…eat your dinner and especially your cake b/c it might be gone the next day!!

I would also add…

 if you are thinking about DIYing something, make sure you’re really up for the challenge. Granted it can really save you a bunch of money, and let your personalize your wedding but invitations and place cards, etc can be a daunting task, especially for those who go into it blindly.

"1. Cheaper isn’t always better. I read the "Bridal Bargains" book feeling so confident about my goal to save money… three wedding dresses later, and two save the date vendors, and much frustration with some "artisian" etsy vendors, I realize I would have been better off just paying full price, and getting what I really wanted to begin with."

fabulouslyengaged, I hope everyone on Weddingbee reads that!  I had my heart set on letterpress wedding invitations but felt guilty about the price, so I paid an Etsy vendor to make us letterpress invites and flat print the rest of the set.  Four months and multiple delays later I still don’t have my invitations, and I wish to death I’d gone with a more expensive printer and saved myself the stress!  Sometimes your time is worth more than your money.

MelissaB~ Would you be willing to share the vendor, via PM maybe? I’m starting to look for letterpress vendors and will probably use Etsy. I would hate to find out the hard way!
