“It is Wedding Wednesday”
On Wedding Wednesday’s we will share tips and techniques in the wedding business.
Part Two…….We are excited to share with you “real live” thoughts from our past Fairy Godmother Brides their advice on things they would do differently.
WHAT I WOULD HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY
We would have spent more time taking photos.
I should not have worried so much about the guests and focused on us.
There were a lot of photos that we did not get to take. I didn’t need a second dress.
I would have found a way to use a restroom BEFORE my first dance.
Very hard to limit the guests would have loved to invite a lot more people.
Shop for your dress at many places, enjoy the experience. Try on lots of dresses. Be sure to look at David’s bridal they have some amazing dresses.
Keep your eye on your vision; don’t let negative people get in the way.
Hire FG; do not underestimate the value of having them.
Have someone else do your make-up.
Have your ceremony and reception in one location.
I would not have had the girls in the same room as me when we were getting ready, way too crazy.
Utilize FG more she is wonderful and wished I would have asked her more questions and when things came up asked her what she would do, etc.
Pick a color that could be found anywhere.
Really think about who is in your bridal party are they going to make your day better….or worse?
I should have had more time for my make-up.
Don’t let your bridal party drink too much before the wedding.
Allow more time for clean-up of the venue.
I should have had someone do my hair for me.
I wished I would have assigned one person to take care of all the bridesmaid’s questions etc.
Given them maybe my Maid of Honors phone number so that they could call her and not me. Way too many calls! With a big bridal party this is a must.
I would have had the wedding earlier so we had more time at the reception. It went too fast.
I would have written more things down for my coordinator. I had the vision in my head I should have shared it with you. I should have hired you for all 12 hours and the day before!
