I thought about this the other night. I would like all 2011 Brides(even lurkers) to add to this post. Leave your top 3 advice for the upcoming 2012 ladies. I also challenge you to post a picture of you and hubby together from your wedding day. A beautiful picture to show these 2012 that all the headaches and crying will be worth it. So come out of lurk mode.....Thanks!
#1 Evaluate your finances- I love David Tutera dearly but our budget was limited. I would have loved to have chair covers and spazzed about this days leading up to the wedding. Well, we did not have covers but the room was still beautiful. You can save your money for more important things!
#2- Whose wedding is this? Seriously! Not everyone will care about your wedding as much as you. Family and even close friends will hurt your feelings by making remarks about your wedding, but if you really want this, then keep on with your plans. Limit talk about your wedding with non bridal friends because most do not understand "our" world.
#3 Keep organized and stay on time! If you need help...ask for it! I also recommend a good coordinator and not your cousin Quetta....kwim? I will admit to being stubborn and waiting to do things at the last minute. Some ideas fell through because I refused to ask for help and then I finally did and luckily I had people to help.
