What was the best part of your wedding day?
That is such a hard question lol!! I think our reception was my favorite part. Literally, every aspect of it, from start to finish. A giant intention we had while planning was to make our wedding reception super fun, not just for us but for our guests. & it definitely paid off!
What do you remember most about your wedding day?
I remember the looks on my loved-ones faces. Whether it was them crying or laughing. It was the happiest i'd ever seen them be, and the nicest to me they ever were to me (lol)
Was there anything you stressed out about in the planning process that ended up not being that big of a deal?
hmmmm. i guess at times i was overly worried about making certain difficult people in our family feel comfortable when at the end of the day those people were going to feel uncomfortable & upset no matter what.
What were some of the things you regret spending time/money on?
I put together a DIY polaroid photobooth area & guestbook that literally no one used! Like only my bridesmaids used it. It was one of my biggest a mistakes not having our engagement pictures printed into a guestbook at the welcome table to be honest. I thought i would be unique and different by making a crafty area thinking people would use it. Turned out to be a fail :D ALSO....we completely regret not having someone film our speeches. Our videographer wanted to charge us $1000 just to film it raw without editing....which was not something we were willing to pay. & then we completely forgot to ask someone to just record it with their phone. Super bummed that we can't re-watch our speeches because they were soooo good!
What were some of the things you don't regret spending time/money on?
We honestly do not regret spending money in any area. We were very particular and careful with what vendors we chose!
What's some advice you would give to someone planning their wedding during COVID 19?
Take it slow. Don't pressure yourself to make things happen ASAP if it's causing you two stress during these crazy times. Wedding planning should be enjoyable and exciting for the most part! Of course, there are challenges, and there will be stress. But, if it makes you upset or stressed the majority of the time, you might need to take a step back by taking some time to reconnect with yourself & analyze the whole purpose of why you guys are having the type of wedding that you're planning in the first place. The thought and process of it should feel good, and nothing less!!! <3
