This “Real Wedding” post is going to go much different than our normal ones since it’s my own! I am often asked questions about my own wedding here at Bread & Chocolate and 4 areas of advice that I would give to current and potential couples planning their wedding. I wrote another blog post about planning tips a few months ago (which can be read here). It’s been a little over two years since my wedding and these tips still ring true!
TIP: Hire professional vendors you trust
Having a professional team that you trust on your wedding day makes the biggest difference not only on your wedding day but the entire planning process and the way you feel looking back on your day. Ashley Dru captured the best moments on our wedding day, made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and took a ton of candid shots, all of which were really important to my husband and I. I didn’t give Ashley a list of “must have” wedding photos because I really trusted her and wanted her, and her second shooter, to take the lead. For flowers, Camille’s Floral went above and beyond! I walked into my first appointment with Tracy with a hodgepodge of ideas and she took them all and came up with the theme that I used throughout the entire planning process. In addition to having absolutely gorgeous flowers, Tracy and her team did all of the set up and tear down. I set up my seating chart and guest book and that was literally all the decorating I did, 5 minutes tops. Instead of worrying about decorating or setting up the venue, I spent the entire weekend with all of my family and friends which is invaluable. Hiring professional vendors you trust makes ALL the difference on your wedding day, trust me.
