Wouldn’t that be really helpful information for someone planning a wedding….?
Like for you maybe...or your daughter or a friend who’s going this journey now?
So...That’s the question I ask our customers 30 days after their event and here’s what some of them revealed to me:
The primary piece of advice I would give someone is to make sure you sit back and take a good long moment to absorb everything taking place at your wedding. Time moves so quickly and there is so much going on that I think it is important to let yourself just relax for a bit and look around to see the joy and happiness that spreads throughout the crowd. -Dustin
I would not change a thing about the event---I loved the Alan House, enjoyed the addition of the Peached Tortilla food truck, thought the wedding taking place on New Year's Eve was perfect, and especially loved the music provided by Strings Attached. One of my favorite photos of the wedding is at Midnight with Kara and Michael standing just in front of the band with the entire reception AND band rasing their glasses at Midnight to toast them---what a way to ring in 2014 and start your married life!
Having now been the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom, my advice to anyone planning a wedding would be enjoy the planning and the big day! Do not turn every decision into a monumental decision---in the end is really just about the celebration of your love for each other! - Suzette
I would first scrub down the guest list and take several weeks to do this. I might not hire a full blown wedding coordinator but I would certainly consider hiring a “day of coordinator”. Above all…make sure you plan to spend more than you budget because the incidentals will break the bank! - Kim
Advice I would give is make sure to have a day-of coordinator, that is a must-have. Also, get a string trio or quartet for the ceremony, it makes it seem so much more emotional and real. The weddings I've been to that have an iPod or DJ playing recorded songs sound so awful. (And one that I just went to that had a single violinist was bad too...you couldn't hear a thing). And lastly, you'll never please everyone, just do what you want and it will all work out in the end. - Brigett
If we could change anything, it would’ve been to have a PA system. You might recall being set up in a nook at one end of our office. It seemed like people were congregating around the music because it could only be heard from a certain distance. - Chelsea
I probably would have had Strings Attached for everything and paid for the extra songs myself... but y'all were truly awesome and I wish I could have had y'all set up in a better spot so you could have been featured more. - Kelsie
