“Do what feels real to you. My husband and I planned our wedding for months, and I don’t regret a minute of that time spent together.  The day of the wedding and afterward, we knew that the entire event truly reflected who we are as people and who we are in love.”

Lindsay

“Try to enjoy every minute! This are going to go wrong, but that’s okay. Remind yourself of what is important! Remember the day is about sharing the love between you and your future husband.”

“Weddings end up becoming a lot more than just about the bride and groom in the lead up so make sure you do what makes you happy and means the most to you on the day. Oh, and wear your shoes a few times to break them in before the day of!”

“Don’t be afraid to be different. There sure weren’t any bridal magazines out there about how to have your dream Tudor wedding! But that’s what makes it fun, and totally unique. Embrace your passions and include elements of the things you love in your special day. I knew that I wanted people leaving our wedding saying “What the heck just happened in there?” and we certainly accomplished it.”

Andrea

“Always go with your gut and stay true to yourself. There are a lot of photos, inspiration and directions a bride can do, but you have to listen to your heart. For example, I had planned to have a fancy look for my hair that I wanted to be perfect. Then, on the morning of my wedding, I realized that fancy hair is just not me and I wanted to feel like myself on the biggest day of my life. So, I simply told my stylist I wanted to leave it down with some soft curls. I ended up getting so many compliments on my hair.”
