Wedding Planning Advice – Fairytale Wedding

1.  Embrace the Nerves 

My girls and I got ready in the venue and had tons of snacks to eat the morning of, while the others were getting hair/makeup done. It was a very emotional morning, I was sooo nervous and kept crying and shaking… but as soon as we were pronounced husband and wife all my nerves instantly went away! 

When I got into my dress, I had only my mom and sisters in the room with me which I loved, and then we did a surprise reveal to my bridesmaids it was a really cute moment!

Wedding Planning Advice From Brides -Mountain Wedding

1.   Have the wedding that speaks to you.

Canmore Alberta is our favorite cozy mountain town, and getting engaged on the top of a mountain there made it the perfect place for us to get married. With Canmore being an 8 hour drive from home, it likely wasn’t a popular choice at first for many of our family and friends. Once we spotted the venue of our dreams, there was no going back, and we decided we would absolutely NOT settle on a different venue. Having a wedding in our hometown would have been the easy option, but we knew we would look back and regret not having the wedding of our dreams, in our favorite place.

Advice From Brides- Summer Romance Wedding

1.  Find your Budget! (and stick to it!) 

As tempting as it is to just start planning, establishing a budget is an absolute must.  Get everything out in the open with what you can spend and if your parents or future in-laws will contribute.  If you aren’t happy with your budget, maybe that means a longer engagement.  But just remember that there is an AMAZING wedding for every budget.

Advice From Brides- Golf Course Wedding

1. VIDEOGRAPHER- GET ONE!!! 

Still photos provide an image of a moment in time, but wedding videos capture both movement and sound. With a wedding video, you’ll be able to hear your spouse gasp during your first look, your dad’s toast and your mom’s laughter. You’ll be able to watch your first kiss as newlyweds, your first dance, and your grandmother’s amazing dance moves. For as beautiful and artistic as still photos can be, they cannot capture motion or sound—which makes a wedding video a must-have.

Asking “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” to your favorite girls is such a fun time in the wedding planning process.

Wedding Planning Advice for a Boho Wedding

1.  YOU DO YOUR THING GIRL.

I spent a year planning our wedding and at the start it was a completely different vision. Halfway through, I realized that I was planning a traditional wedding that would be just like every other wedding I was at, even though it didn’t reflect what I had dreamt about my whole life. I am a free spirit and have my own unique tastes- I realized MY wedding wouldn’t be traditional. Some of the things I changed were: *I went from having all matching traditional bridesmaids dresses to having all different mis-matched patterened, non-traditional dresses * I changed the flowers from just some uniform smaller bouquets to bright, fun, crazy wildflowers spilling out from every which way.
