Advice From A Bride

Looking for advice about planning your wedding? Ask a recent bride. Dana who married her best friend, Nick, last summer has shared some good advice for couples planning a wedding..take a moment to read.

From the Dana: Nick and I were pretty relaxed about most details of our day, but we were pretty adamant about having the reception and ceremony in the same space. We wanted our guests to enjoy the whole day seamlessly and not have to worry about going from one location to another.

Although this turned out great, it also gave us a little less time for photos. Luckily we found a great little space across the street and were able to save some travel time and stay in one place!

If I had to offer some advice for any bride planning a wedding it would be this: Start planning early! Remember you and your fiancé are on the same side. Try to involve your family where you can and most importantly, take a step back, breathe, and enjoy the day when it arrives!

For us the day was perfect. Perfect weather, a beautiful ceremony and a very fun reception with great food and amazing music. But most importantly, we were surrounded by the people whom we love, which made us feel so special and honoured…and we both got to marry our best friend.

Thank-you Boakview Photography for sharing these beautiful photos.
