They Judge Their Friends Weddings
Girl, we have all been there. Almost all my couples have told me that if they go to a friends wedding leading up to their own, they will take mental notes about what they liked and didn’t like about that wedding. This can be things like the order of events, colour scheme, or first dance song. Keep in mind that this doesn’t have to be a negative thing! You could go to a wedding and adore how they changed up their wedding day timeline. Let your wedding planner know about what you like and don’t like from those weddings. Your planner will be able to create a theme or timeline that works best with your vision!
Hating Everyone’s Unsolicited Wedding Advice
Becoming engaged is such an exciting time. When you get engaged A LOT of people come out of the woodwork and tell you how things should be done on your wedding day. Auntie Sally believes you should do X, Y, on your wedding day, but then your friend Dayna thinks that the perfect wedding day should include A, B, C. As a bride, don’t be afraid to be straight forward and direct about what you want YOUR wedding day to be.
Friends… If you have a bestie that’s engaged and your already married, do them a favor and hold back from overwhelming them with a zillion pieces of advice unless they ask.
They Get Caught up in What Guests “Expect” on their Wedding Day
Who gives a F*&^ what your guests want, this day is about you and your hubby. This mindset of truly personalizing your wedding is becoming more popular and we at ALWeddings are totally on board! Your wedding doesn’t have to follow any rules. If you don’t want traditional stationary then don’t, or if you don’t want to do dances then don’t!
To be honest, as wedding planners we start salivating when couples come to us saying they want an nontraditional wedding. This means we get to flex our creative muscle and design an epic wedding that matches our client’s vision.
