On slowing down:

“Set aside 5-10 minutes right after the ceremony to take it all in!” – Kellie B.

“It goes by so fast. Make sure you take time to enjoy each other and your guests and not rush to each photo op.” – Alexa T.

“Don’t try to do everything (or anything) yourself! Delegate duties so you can enjoy every moment.” – Olivia O.

“Stay with your significant other as much as possible on your wedding day! Remember it as a ‘together’ day!” – Aspynn T.

On smart planning:

“Don’t forget lunch for your bridal party and family day-of!” – Jennifer M.

“Tell your planner everything you hope to have happen on your wedding day.” – Tay R.

“Have someone film how to bustle your dress!” – Mikka J.

“Save all emails from all vendors (create a Wedding folder in your email). This saved me multiple times.” – Kaylyn A.

On prioritizing:

“Stick to what you really want for your day, and don’t let a vendor make you feel guilty for it.” – H.R.

“If you have a tight budget, spending money on a great photographer will be worth it!” – Morgan M.

“Listen to your significant other’s ideas. You will regret it later for not listening to them!” – Alicia L.
