Next up is a message from Krista….she said this time last year she was looking through the entries of my last contest and found them helpful! She has lots of “fab” things, but also talks about guest list & budget, which can be the not-so-fun party of wedding planning.
• THE most fabulous thing about our wedding was not the ‘stuff’ that went into making it our day. It was the people who surrounded us that day. The best advice we got prior to the wedding, from several people, was to ‘take it all in.’ We are so glad we did. I can’t remember my vows word-for-word, but I do remember the feeling I had holding my husband’s hand and saying ‘this is the best!’
• Finding trustworthy vendors. It made our wedding a lot easier to have vendors who demonstrated that they were good at what they do. We could trust them and not worry about micromanaging what they were going to offer us on our wedding day. Referrals go along way on this note.
• Etsy!! was my savior in making our wedding ‘special’ and affordable. I got our cake topper, hair pieces, bridesmaid gifts, flower girl gifts, escort card accessories, and probably more on this site. Don’t be shy about asking a vendor you like to do something “custom” for you; I’m so glad I asked.
