– My husband and I looked through so many options when we were first planning and we found that it was really easy to want to be impulsive and to want to go with our first choice but this rarely worked out for us. Our biggest piece of advice would be to take your time and to not just go with your first choice but look around and pick what is right for you.
– Choose vendors based on how they work together. All of our vendors knew each other and worked seamlessly together – we barely had to do anything!!
– Also remember to not stress over the small details and save money where you can. No one knew I had a cheap dress, or that we rented our decorations for a crazy cheap price, or that we assembled our own centerpieces – they had a terrific time because we invested our budget where it counted (food, music, venue) and didn’t no or care about many of the smaller details (but we saved a ton!).
– Enjoy your wedding, it will be over before you know it.
