The Best Wedding Advice I Received
The excitement leading up to my wedding was unbearable. I took off work a few days early to organize, pack, prepare, and get pretty. To be honest, most of the advice people gave me was considerate but not super helpful. They told me to eat, exist in the moment, have fun, relax, blah blah blah. I find that the best advice is always tactical. Someone doesn't tell you "eat" but instead they say "ask your catering manager to pull you away for 10 minutes during the cocktail hour so you can quickly eat." (btw we did that and it was awesome) They don't say "be in the moment" but instead, they remind you what your wedding is about, and how you can actually stay present. This is what my MOH, Sofya, did for me.
Here's what she texted me:
I didn't realize how important this advice would be until my wedding day, when I realized HOW MANY distractions there are. Everyone wants to say hello, congratulate you, take a photo with you, etc. By keeping in mind this advice, I was able to do all these things while "checking in" mentally with myself. Brandon and I managed to spend most of the night arm-in-arm, dancing like maniacs, and having the best time together. And what's more important than that, right?
