The other day I was driving to lunch, and Noodles and Company of course, with a dear friend when she asked me a surprising question:
What did you like about your wedding, and looking back, what would you change?
My answer turned into a few tips of what I did, and didn’t do that she should make sure she did… so I thought I’d share.
1. Have incredible food. People remember the food. The food can make the wedding. Have you ever been to a wedding with fantastic food that you just thought was so-so? I have been to plenty of weddings where the food was the let down. Do your guests, and yourself (you’re eating too!) a favor, have incredible food.

2. Think photographs. Three months, or Thirty years from now…you’ll have your husband, and you’ll have photographs. Make sure they’re good. Make sure you captured what you wanted. When I picked bridesmaid dresses I thought photographs. When I picked colors I thought photographs. And when I picked my dress, I was certainly thinking photographs. (I’ll spare you from posting a million pictures – check out Wednesday Wedding Details other posts for more 🙂

3. Don’t have a to-do list. On you wedding day, don’t have responsibilities. Don’t have anything you have to do other than look beautiful, be happy, and marry the love of your life. Have you honeymoon bags packed, have someone in charge of everything, and take every second you can to enjoy your day – because it really is a magical day.
4. Surround yourself with people you love. You don’t need anyone else besdies your husband there to make your day perfect, but loved ones make it all the more wonderful.
There is a lot more I could say on weddings but for now I’ll leave it at that.
Other updates: Ben’s parents are in town and they are taking us to dinner tonight. That means 2 things: One, very yummy food. Two, a day of lots of cleaning before they get here tonight.
