Helpful hints from a brides standpoint...

At one of our post wedding lunches with our wonderful bride & her mother, we always try to converse with our clients about the pro's and con's of their wedding day. We also love to hear the small things that meant a lot to the couple or any words of wisdom they may have for future brides.

Our bride, Samantha, informed Jenna and I that she was so thankful for these two helpful hints before her wedding day:

1. During cocktail hour, take a breather, spend some time together as a newly married couple, nibble on some appetizers or have your meals prepared early so that you have a moment to relax and rejuvenate before mingling with all of the wedding guests.

2. When approaching and mingling with all of the guests during the dinner hour, keep each other close by, hold hands and introduce one another to any wedding guest that may not be well known to either the bride or the groom. This helps to feel the flow of the conversation going and allows the bride and groom to spend that time together.

Small intimate details like this can help to ease some of the wedding day stess. It's important to sit back and take it all in. It's a once in a life time experience, so smile & enjoy!
