BRIDE OF THE MONTH ADVICE:

Most unique wedding personalization: We had professional dance lessons for our first dance

Something you did very different: We auctioned off the garter.  My grandma suffers from Alzheimer’s so we donated all the proceeds toward the Alzheimer’s Association.

Something you did very traditional: A FULL catholic mass

Something you would do all over again: Riding in the limo alone after the ceremony, it gave us a moment to spend together by ourselves on our big day

Something you would never do again: Pictures after the ceremony. Our bridal party was ready to get to the reception and celebrate!

Most memorable wedding moment: Seeing each other for the first time that morning.

Best wedding decision:  Hiring a wedding planner! Michele from Accolade of London helped ensure that our day was STRESS FREE! There were a lot of small details that she took care of, which left us with nothing to worry about.

Best wedding overall advice: Pick out what YOU want.  Every girl has an idea in her mind what her wedding day should look like.  Make sure YOU are choosing details that bring that vision to life.
