A Few Wedding Tips

Posted on: Wednesday, February 20, 2013

I had a wonderful, great time at the wedding last June, and from what I hear it was a big hit with our friends and family, too. To be honest, it's amazing how much I don't particularly care about weddings anymore, and likely won't until my friend gets engaged (yes you, Tracy), but it was a huge part of my 2011 and 2012, and as we have yet to figure out what photos to order, I feel like we are still in the very final stages of the wedding process. Also, our two year anniversary is coming up in a few weeks! :) Here are my tips from one "bride" to the next.

- Stand up for what you want or don't want, like and don't like. I didn't like my hair but couldn't do anything about it when the time came. I still don't believe I looked great, which is unfortunate because that is one day I think you should feel like you look amazing. Do whatever you can to feel like your most spectacular, comfortable self; you don't want to look back and not like seeing pictures of yourself.

- Keep in mind that as hard as it is planning a wedding, maintaining a happy marriage is harder.

- This is one occasion in which I am OK employing the utilitarian perspective of "the greatest good for the greatest number."  You can't cater your wedding to everyone, so just do your best with what you know about your guests and resources.

- Surround yourself with positive people. Whether you've known your bridesmaid for a year or ten, choose ladies who will tell you you're pretty, make you laugh and not get upset when you get frustrated.

- Have good music and good booze, whatever that looks like for you :)

- If you want special moments, plan for them.

- Organize your travel to the location. We probably should have hired a limo or something.

- Be in the moment(s). Or in the words of Amy Poehler: "No one looks stupid when they're having fun."

- I suppose I should say to remember to eat and drink, but I didn't do that much and I was fine. I should probably also say get some sleep the week leading up to the wedding, but I didn't do that either.

- Take some time to yourself the morning of, if you can, to casually check over things yourself, alone, and have some peace and quiet before the storm. I went out to the farm really early in the morning; it was cool and the goat came to visit me. It is a good opportunity to run through your check list without distraction.

- Pick vendors you can trust, and then trust them.

- Do something nice for someone else. The wedding was on the same day as my bridesmaid Abigail's birthday, so we surprised her with a cake and we all sang Happy Birthday. At my friend Kendall's wedding, she arranged for a special "first dance" for her brother and sister-in-law; who were not able to have a wedding when he got out of the Army. Your marriage is all about you and your husband, but the wedding is not (don't believe it when you hear it is, you will just be disappointed), and it feels good to shout out to others on your big day.

Huh, when I started this I only had one tip in mind, and then look what happened. Take them or leave them! Most of all, have a happy wedding!
