She obliged me in answering a few questions about her wedding planning experience.
1. What five words could you use to describe your wedding? Fun, exhausting, crazy, surprising, and exciting.2. What has been your best wedding planning experience so far? This is kind of pathetic, but finding my wedding shoes. I'm not even a shoe person, but these were so amazing and exactly what I had in mind, and they were on sale for 80% off. I still get excited looking at them. Also, finding the perfect reception site - it has absolutely everything we wanted without breaking the bank.
3. Can you give one bit of advice for other brides planning? Be flexible. Almost all of the ideas I had at the beginning of the planning have been tweaked, changed or dropped completely, including my vision of the perfect dress for me. Be willing to look outside of your "perfect day" plan and be willing to think a little outside of your comfort zone on some things.
4. What is the one detail you couldn't do without for your wedding day? A wedding planner. I am constantly late, and easily overstressed, so having a wedding planner is a Godsend for keeping me on track with what needs to be done and making sure I don't have to do anything but enjoy myself on my wedding day. That and a really fantastic pair of wedding shoes ;)
