Thank you Angel, that’s actually really helpful. I hadn’t even thought of what to do for photography but it definitely is important to me to get nice photos that don’t look staged and feel natural!AngelTheGypsy said:My advice: do what you want, and what you can afford. Have fun with it, try not to let is stress you out. Delegate if need be. Do one thing at a time. Try to keep it simple.
Biggest thing? Don’t let the photographer turn your wedding into a photo shoot. Have a party the photographer takes pictures of. (My photographer said, okay, cut the cake! Okay, garter! Now throw the bouquet! It made it feel like the only reason those things were done was for pictures)
Thanks again Coradee I will try my utmost not to stress!Coradee said:I know I’ve already said congratulations but thought I’d do it here too
I’d agree with Angels advice, do what you & your fiancé want to do not what others think you should do, & try not to stress over it too much.
Look forward to seeing the wedding pics
Thank you!!!JeffK said:Congratulations! Since I'm also a runner, and noticed this happened at a race, I have to ask... Was this before or after you crossed the finish line?
Thanks vikingkirken I will definitely try to stay grounded. We already told ourselves to be smart about this because I think owning a home is a huge priority for us, much more so than a crazy expensive wedding. But I absolutely need to have yummy food!vikingkirken said:Don't get into a ton of debt over a wedding, and don't push the date way out to afford something extravagant. It's one day--you want it to be memorable and special, but guess what, it WILL be, no matter how fancy the venue is or how much you pay per plate for food. So much more important to start out your marriage without that debt hanging over you, or maybe even with a house downpayment!
Also, try not to stress about little things going wrong. Those are the things that you'll remember and laugh about for years after
I’m already thinking of asking my sister to be my MOH. She’s not afraid to tell me when I’m behaving poorly so hopefully that means any bridezilla moments will be minimal lol.Dave125g said:My advise is to assign a close friend or family member to plan the wedding. You don't want to do it yourself. Don't be a bridezilla. That way you can enjoy the process.
