Today's real wedding shot by Milton Photography proves that staying on top of the wedding planning can result in a stress-free experience. The bride, Melissa, shares with us all of her tips to avoid being bummed and over-worked throughout the wedding planning process. It's obvious the couple put lots of hard work and effort to create the perfect day, and it paid off!
If you are looking for fun creative country wedding ideas, we absolutely love the cow printed groomsmen socks and the bridesmaid's cute little boots. Could it be any more fitting for a family farm dairy inspired wedding?
What were the top priorities for you in planning the wedding? 1.) Staying within a reasonable budget and creating most of our wedding props by hand as woodworking is one of my hobbies. 2.) Incorporating getting married on the family farm to show my roots but also keeping the elegant soft touches that I like. 3.) Having our long time pastor Phil Kniesel marry us.
Throughout your wedding planning did you have a moment when you were a Bummed Bride? I did not ever feel like a bumped bride. I thoroughly enjoyed the wedding planning process. I am a detailed person and had everything organized, labeled and kept all the vendor information and pay due dates in a binder.
I passed out the wedding timeline to my family so they would know how to help and the timeline of the day. There are moments you feel overwhelmed but make a list! It helps.
Did you do a first look? Would you recommend it to future brides? We did not do a first look. We are very traditional and did not want to see each other before walking down the aisle! That moment when you first see your future husband at the end of the aisle is one worth saving.
What was your favorite part of wedding planning? My favorite part of wedding planning is hard to chose since i really did love everything! I loved all the details!
What is your best advice to future brides? Use theknot.com planner it is very helpful and eliminates a lot of stress! Enjoy your day, but don't spend a fortune. No one will remember the napkins or how the hall looked they remember memories!
Spend that money on a videographer – we almost didn't do this and it was a last minute addition but the most important thing we have now post-wedding!
Have a videographer to capture your memories so you can re-watch your vows and commitment to one another.
