From the Bride:

My biggest tip for future brides is to not get caught up in the stress of planning a wedding. We planned our wedding in a little over four months, and it was the most stressful thing I have ever done. In the midst of the daily to-do’s, it is hard to not get caught up in the small things. I caught myself stressing over what color the napkins were going to be… to what our first dance song would be. In all reality when the wedding day came: I bought the same wedding gift as my husband’s groomsmen, I got sick right before I walked down the isle, and my wedding dress wound up stained from my bouquet, but the day could not have been more perfect because of what it meant. 40 years down the road I won’t remember what color the napkins were, but I will remember the unbreakable bond with the man that stands by my side, just as we stood in that sanctuary.
