TORI AND RYAN'S WINTER WEDDING AT ST. CHARLES PREPARATORY
BRIDE'S ADVICE TO COUPLES CURRENTLY PLANNING THIER WEDDING DAY:
Get a wedding coordinator if you are having a large wedding! We invited over 200 people. Trying to handle all the details on your own is strenuous. The money is worth it. I have planned and hosted events in my line of work, and weddings are a different ball game. There are days I have been stressed, and my fiance has too. We have snapped at one another from time to time, but in the year of planning, we have honestly fought about nothing to do with the wedding. Be fair to one another, let the groom pick some things for the wedding and give him a to do list (stay on him about it), and if either of you is having a bad day try to lift the other one up. Ryan noticed last week I was irritable due to my growing list of things to do for the wedding, and he simply just said, "I'm going to treat you to a nice dinner." It wasn't anything expensive (as we are trying to watch funds), but it was perfect. I had dinner with my main man, someone else catered to us, and he got me back to laughing and giggling in no time. Ladies, as I'm writing this he just looked over at me and said, "you're the bomb," because I have done nothing but wedding planning the entire weekend. You really need to support one another and encourage one another. It is more helpful than you will ever know.
