Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Relax and enjoy every moment! It goes quickly. Most people attending will not remember the small details like you, just remember to do what’s most important for you and your fiance — you two are what matter the most!
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? Start getting ready as early as possible to enjoy the day!!! Rushing is not enjoyable.
