Our latest installment of Lessons Learned comes from Sarah. They had a super sweet wedding at the Collingwood Library in Alexandria, VA that we were honored to be a part of. Here’s what she had to say:
Q: Describe your wedding:
We wanted an elegant, yet fun wedding, surrounded by friends and family.
Q: What was your favorite part of your day?
A: Our (practiced) dipped kiss!
Q: What was the hardest part about planning your wedding?
A: Bridesmaid drama and mediating other people’s opinions.
Q: What did you learn that you wished you had known?
A: That there will be people who think the day is more important for them than for you and your partner. I knew this, but wished I could have accepted it more than resisted it.
Q: What was the most unexpected part of the day?
A: Last minute change of hair styling location which caused us to have to go downtown on the day of the Marine Corps Marathon. Oh! And the overflowing toilet that no one wanted to take care of. Yikes! There is always something!
Q: Any other wisdom to share?
A: Plan ahead, so you can relax the day of; always be happy with the decisions you made or, if you’re not, having made them for your fiancee’s benefit; treat others as you would like to be treated; always cherish your fiancee even when you want to hit him/her over the head during the planning process
