Wedding Advice

A few weeks ago, I thought, “I wonder what wedding advice some of my married female friends would have for me.”  So I emailed them, asking what they wish they would’ve done differently, what they wish they would have (or wouldn’t have) spent money on, etc.   Their responses did not disappoint.  I’m going to share a few with you here, though they shall remain anonymous. 🙂

-“Schedule a nap the day before.  And don’t leave for your honeymoon at 5:00 a.m. the day after you get married.”

-“I felt like I had to do everything myself. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.”

-“Practice walking in your dress.  And don’t forget to prepare your heart for marriage.”

-“Elope.” (HA!)

-“Get a photographer you love.” (Check!)

-“Be present to your own celebration of what’s happening – eat the food, enjoy your cake, and dance with sheer joy!”

Thanks!  Love you, friends!

Any other wedding advice you’d like to add?

  1. Remember that the wedding is NOT the main thing! The main thing is the MARRIAGE! Spend more time preparing for your life together. Throughout your wedding preparation, things will go wrong. But those things really don’t matter. At the end of the day, if you are in a beautiful marriage, that is what matters. The flowers, the decorations, even the dress and the shoes (yes, even the shoes) are mere fluff. You and Jonathan are the real thing.

  2. One often overlooked aspect of marriage is that when you marry someone, you also marry their family. Even if they say they want to get away from their family, remember, blood is thinker than water. I was so very fortunate that I had great in-laws.

  3. The one thing I keep saying is that I wish I hadn’t invited so many people. Part of that is where my church was around the time we got married (and it’s demise shortly thereafter), but I don’t even see /talk to the majority of people who were at our wedding.
