Advice for Brides to be
I just wanted to make a post to share some advice that I have learned along the way, and feel free to add to the list :)
- Before you start going to bridal shows and putting your email down everywhere, I would make a seperate wedding planning email address. 1.5 years later I am still getting spammed with wedding stuff!
-Along with the bridal shows, I would take return address labels (with your wedding email) to give to people rather then having to rewrite it a million times.
- If your planning on a long engagement wait to ask your bridesmaids to be in the wedding, just in case something changes and your not as good of friends when the time comes you dont have that awkward are they still planning on being in the wedding moment.
-Although you may think its flattering to copy someones EXACT wedding details, if you know them in real life its not. If you met them online through a wedding website- its free game lol :)
- Dont be afraid of DIYs!
- As much as you think everyones world should revolve around your wedding, it dosnt. Dont forget that your bridesmaids lives havent stopped just becasue your getting married. Ask how they are every once in awhile! No body likes a Bridezilla :)
-Make a list of all your must have photo ops for the day of the wedding! There will be a lot going on and it will move faster and be a lot easier if everyone knows what pictures you want. I would even think about dividing it into a must have/want list so you are completely happy with your pictures at the end of the day.
- Have back up plans, and dont get upset if everything dosnt go as planned.
-As far as PW, give credit where credit is due! if you get an idea from another bride make sure to give her credit. There is nothing more hurtful then getting on PW and realizing someone is getting compliments on something they did (that is yours) and your not credited anywhere.
Thats all I can think of right now :) I'll update later if I think of more! Happy planning!
