How would you sum up your wedding in a few sentences? Our wedding was definitely glamourous! The fact that I wore multiple different dresses on the day probably showcased that. We also focused our wedding décor around the contrast of gold and various shades of red with over 2,000 individual flowers that popped against our clear glass furniture and gold detailing. I really do think that glamorous is the best description!
What was most important to you about your day? I wanted our guests to be blown away, by everything! With that in mind we had no set limits; the more glitz, the better! With thousands of flowers and hundreds of candles, we wanted every element of our wedding to be incomparable and unforgettable. My dresses were very important to me; I couldn’t decide between having a big princess dress, or having a sexy fitted dress… So in the end, I decided on both! I also wanted to wow our guests with another dress for the cutting of the cake, so I chose to literally match my dress to the cake and have gold detailing throughout.
What made the day special for you? Our first dance as a married couple! Neither of us had much ballroom dancing experience, and I didn’t want to embarrass myself, so I made Steve take private dance lessons with me for a few weeks leading up to our wedding. After cutting our amazing cake our wedding song came on, it was quite nerve-racking to start with but Steve made it fun and I soon relaxed.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms planning their wedding? On the wedding day; take a deep breath and enjoy yourself! Your day goes by so quickly you really don’t want to spend it stressing about minor details. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen are there to help you, take advantage of that! Ask them for help so that you have one less thing on your mind and you can embrace the day!
