The Best Wedding Day Advice from Others

“I was so glad that I didn’t stress the small stuff on my wedding day. Once your wedding day rolls around you’ve been planning and stressing for weeks. Let it end before you go to bed the night before your wedding. If something goes wrong it’s not the end of the world. You just married the man of your dreams! Enjoy this day and keep all your memories positive.” —Rebekah

The whole day tends to fly by in a whirlwind of activities and people and details.  I wish my husband and I would have carved out some time right after the ceremony for the two of us to get away from it all, decompress and talk to each other for a few minutes in private.  I kept wanting to drag him away from everyone to have a moment to just ourselves, but we were both being pulled in a million different directions.  A personal private few minutes to reflect with each other before all the madness began would have been really nice.” —Sara

I wish I had invested more in my wedding — not
crazy amounts, but a few more things. You can always make more money, but you
only get one wedding. That being said though, invest more in your marriage than
you do a wedding. Have fun, and make it look nice — but it’s not the wedding
that is the most important detail, it’s everything after that day. 

“The best advice I have is kind of two part. Be sure to
take a moment where it’s just you and your husband and just take it all in –
you will be pulled every which way with people but just remember to take a
second just the two of you. Also it is your day – if you don’t get around to
everyone that’s ok. I spent my entire wedding trying to make sure I spoke to
everyone – this was an impossible task and as a result I was only able to dance
to thee songs outside of the first dance and daddy daughter. That is my biggest
regret – I wish I would’ve just danced and not been so concerned about everyone

“Take a few minutes throughout the ENTIRE
day to really enjoy and cherish the moments between you and your new husband.
Don’t regret anything. The day goes by so fast, and you want to remember
enjoying it and not worrying about the little details or mishaps (if any). Ask
a few friends to videograph/ some photos (If you don’t have videographer) The
wedpics app is awesome because ANYONE you invite can upload any photos/videos
that were taken  that day. So you
can get a different perspective and shots of everyone smile emoticon It’s fun to see what people end up
uploading and some favorite photos came from that!”–

 I’m happy we did a first look! We got to take
most of our pictures before the ceremony! That left us with more time to enjoy
cocktail hour with our guests!”

  • Yes!!! I loved doing a first look and getting to hang out together before <3

  • Thanks so much for sharing my advice 🙂 It's great to read everyones too!

  • Don't expect everything to be perfect and don't stress if it's not. I planned and planned and attended to every detail, decided going into the day that no matter what happened, Jay and I would be spending our lives together and that is what mattered. Not if the cake was beautiful, not if the flowers were fresh, not if it rained or someone was late or didn't show. It's been 10 years now and all I remember is a perfect day.

  • These are all great pieces of advice and I can't wait to have my own wedding day happen now.

  • We eloped and it was absolutely perfect. It was so much less stressful not having to deal with everyone's opinions or stressing over the flowers or dresses or the centerpieces or anything else that brides tend to stress over. I'm not saying everyone should elope, but the best wedding advice I can give is to remember why you're getting married. We weren't marrying just to have a glamorous wedding day and honeymoon. We were getting married because we loved each other and wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. So we opted for the stress free option and did a courthouse elopement. At the end of the day, the only thing that should matter is that you're marrying the love of your life. I couldn't have asked for a better day 🙂

  • Aw I love these little tidbits of advice! I will definitely reference them when it's my turn :). Hopefully sooner than later!
