Day Of Wedding Advice From a Now Mrs!

Whew, what a whirlwind these past couple of weeks has been!  July 29, 2017 I officially joined the Mrs. Club and everything was absolutely amazing.  Looking back on the best day of my life, I wanted to share a few moments with the upcoming bride-to-be’s about my favorite moments of the day.

Cherish the Special Moments

You’ve heard it a million times but your wedding day flies by!  Every moment counts on your wedding day so remember to really soak everything in.  I had so much fun getting ready with my bridesmaids in the morning and being able to spend quality time with them before the hustle and bustle of the day really took over. Take time to give that extra hug to your parents after they see you in your wedding dress or just a quick one-on-one with your maid of honor before heading to the ceremony. Trust me once the official wedding begins it’s hard to get to everyone.

Don’t Dwell on the Small Details

I am a planner so when something goes off course I am easily derailed.  The week of the wedding I was starting to get a little overwhelmed with how everything was going to stay on track and small details of the wedding that I really didn’t have much control of.  Literally the day-of I didn’t notice or think about the “what if’s”…trust the people you have worked with because everything comes together in the end.

Take a Moment at Your Reception

Throughout the hustle and bustle of the day it may be hard to get some one-on-one time with your now husband.  One of my favorite moments of the reception was when my husband and I went outside and just talked on the steps for a few minutes.  It was such a special moment between us but was also amazing to look inside at everyone dancing and having a great time after all of your hard work.

Enjoy the Social Media

After your big day is over take time to reminisce by watching your snap chat videos and seeing your friends post on Facebook and Instagram.  It was so much fun to see the insider perspective from our wedding party and guests. Don’t forget to have your friends save their videos so you can replay as many times as you want!
