A few weeks ago on Instagram, we asked our followers to help us and help our brides. We asked currently married people and wedding vendors to tell us the one piece of advice they would give to new brides and recently engaged couples. As promised, here are their answers…
IF YOU COULD GIVE RECENTLY ENGAGED COUPLES AND NEW BRIDES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD YOU TELL THEM?
“Hire a planner! Even for the day-of…so worth it!”
“Keep true to what you want as a couple. Don’t be pressured by what others want. Do you!”
“Hire a wedding planner.”
“Hire. A. Wedding. Planner. Period.”
“Enjoy it, and don’t get too stressed in the details! Focus on the marriage over the wedding!”
“Hire a Planner!!!”
We also asked vendors an additional question…
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WISH BRIDES KNEW?
“Enjoy this time being engaged! Go on dates where you just have fun together!”
“That our number one goal is to exceed their expectations.”
“If you want a more relaxed day, plan for extra buffer time EVERYWHERE.”
“Weddings aren’t a scam. They’re expensive due to the incredibly amount of work and expertise required.”
“That crazy Aunt Sue, twice removed, does not need an invite if it causes stress.”
“Your entire budget depends on your guest count.”
Clearly there is a theme here, so if you are in need of a wedding planner, we’d love to chat with you!
