A bridal shop manager I spoke with recently said she sees lots of women come through the store looking for a new dress, saying they regretted their impulse purchase. Once you buy, you can't return, so go home and sleep on it. At the same time, there will always be a more beautiful dress out there, so stop looking (especially on Pinterest!) once you find one you love. The Day-of Help If you're having a small, informal gathering at your parents' house, a coordinator may not be necessary; but if you've got a band, a photographer, flowers, table numbers, escort cards, caterers, rentals… you're going to need someone to make sure the caterers aren't putting the jug of ice water in di- rect sunlight or to oversee the lighting level during the band's set. The Decisions There comes a point in planning a wedding when you mentally and emotionally cannot make one more decision. For example, a week or so before my wedding, my photographer emailed me to find out if we preferred a square, two-by-two photo booth print or a one-by-three or — at which point I turned to my fiancé and said, "I don't care. Do we have to pick?" Then my inbox dinged again: "Color or BW?" the photographer asked. "Color. 3x1," I responded decisively. This was not a skill I had from the beginning. I spent my evenings week after week searching online stores for the perfect bridesmaid dress. I should have just given the girls a color and told them to go find a dress that fits their body and budget. Once I learned to let go and trust my gut, the process became a lot more enjoyable. Despite the stressful lessons I learned along the way and the regrets I carry, my friends and extended family were able to make it to the wedding and eat and dance and laugh and cry with us. My wedding day was the best day ever. Catch the next opportunity! Make plans now to be in the Fall/Winter issue of Louisville Bride. Louisville's Premier Bridal Publication.
