How did you pull of such a fabulous wedding in a short amount of time? Did you ever feel stressed out during the planning?
I planned my wedding in such a short amount of time with a lot of help and i mean A LOT! I couldn't have made it happen without all the love and support around me. My mother, mother-in-law, my husband, maid of honor, and bridesmaids all helped me plan a perfect wedding.
What was the most important element of your wedding when you were planning it, and looking back now, do you agree with putting such importance on it now?
The most important element to my wedding was my photography from the beginning. I knew exactly what-and who-I wanted! And I do agree with how much importance I put on it with all the reactions from friends and family on how the pictures turned out. I can't tell you how many compliments I've received on them.
How did you pick your wedding dress?
I found my dress at a local dress shop that was changing to solely a costume rental so all of their dresses were marked down at prices I couldn't pass up! I picked my specific dress because I love the style of the dress, and the accents matched my theme and colors perfectly. I felt so beautiful in the dress.
Did you have a certain theme you were going with for the over all style of your wedding?
The theme for my wedding was a bit of theater meeting modern due to venue! My mother-in-law actually made most of the decorations herself!
How did you feel during your first look with your now husband?
I felt just overwhelmed with almost every emotion during our first look-but mainly joy. He looked so handsome! It put me at ease to see him, and taking on the day together as a team. I just couldn't wait to actually be married to start the rest of our lives together.
As you relive your wedding day, what was the single best moment of the day/night?
I don't know if i could even pick a best moment of the day it was all so wonderful. Our first dance was one of my favorite moments though. We danced to a song that was custom made for us, that my husband bought me for one of our christmas's. Just getting to hear that song and be in his arms was the best feeling.
If you could do it all over again, what would you change about it and why?
One thing that I would change was that we didn't do a rehearsal beforehand. I think that everyone was really nervous not doing a run through of the whole thing, so if we did they would've been more relaxed and so would I!
You had some help making your dream wedding, how do you think it would’ve gone without their help?
I had a lot of help making my dream wedding a reality, and I can with certainty say that it would not have went as smoothly without it. Our mothers pretty much took it into their own hands and made everything I wanted happen! I couldn't have done it without them and all the additional help i wouldn't have wanted to do it without!
Leading up to the day, what were the biggest things that stressed you out and how did you get through it?
Most things that stressed me out leading up to the day were just last minute jitters basically. Worried things wouldn't be perfect. After we decorated the venue I felt more at ease. Talking with my bridesmaids and husband helped a lot as well.
If you were to give one piece of advice to a bride planning her dream wedding now, what would it be?
One piece of advice to a bride planning now would just be to take things one step at a time. If you make a list and start at the beginning and have a great support system it will be a fun experience so just relax and enjoy it!
