Post-Wedding Post: Advice from the Other Side

I’ve been married almost a month now and it still seems so crazy to say “my husband”.   Our wedding day was amazing, even better than I expected.  We had such a great time with our family & friends!  We don’t have all of our wedding pictures yet, but I thought I’d share a few pictures that we do have, and a little wedding advice from the other side :)

 Pick Vendors You Like.  It seems like common sense but I think the most important thing we did was pick vendors that were incredibly talented, but also that we felt we really clicked with.  You’re going to be spending a lot of time with them on the wedding day, and in the planning process, so you want to be really comfortable with them.  I really felt like our vendors became friends and that was such a good feeling.  I can honestly say we loved each and every one of our vendors.  They were fantastic to work with, and they really made our wedding day vision a reality.


 Do the “First Look”:  We did a first look, and I’m so happy we did.  We were both nervous, but seeing each other beforehand had such a happy and calming effect.  We both lost the nerves and were able to just enjoy the day.  I know I was worried about being in front of such a large group of people for the ceremony  but I felt totally at ease, not even a little nervous.  Which was surprising since I tend to get a little anxious.  Our ceremony was on the shorter side, so that definitely helped too.  We also got some amazing pictures from the first look.  We did all of our bridal party & family pictures before the ceremony as well, so we got to enjoy the cocktail hour and mingle with our guests.  I know it’s not for everyone, but if you’re considering a first look but aren’t sure then I’m here to tell you, DO IT!  It was one of the best decisions we made.
