We’ve had an amazing response from brides to the Facebook post we featured asking for some wedding day diaries….we’ve selected a few of our favourites & will share them over the coming weeks. First we hear from Sam:
We got married on the 5th April 2014 and hired the beautiful Morris to transport our bridesmaids, along with Mother & Father of the bride. We had our family Beetle as our wedding car!
My advice to future brides would be to relax. I was an absolute mess in the week leading up to the wedding, I couldn’t stop shaking and was probably not a nice person to be around!! On the day the little things don’t matter and as soon as I got to the church my nerves disappeared – which was perfect.
I would advise you to have the day off work before hand, even if your venue is being prepared by staff, or family and friends, its worth having a day to get your head around things and focus on the wedding.
I wish I’d prepared my favours a little earlier as they took longer than expected, but it all worked out in the end. Above all enjoy yourself and take it all in. We were so overwhelmed that everyone there was there to celebrate our marriage and that is so special.
Take time to be with your new husband on the day and look around the room at everyone enjoying themselves.
You’ll look and feel amazing in your Pear Tree vehicle (it’s quite a head turner!) so smile & embrace it!
Have a fantastic wedding, I hope my advice helps,
Sam Potter (newly wed)
Thank you Sam…..some lovely advice there – I like the idea of taking a moment to look around the room at everyone enjoying themselves…….
