Wedding Advice and Tips from Newlyweds

Once the big day comes to a close, there’s no one with better insight on what mattered, which details weren’t worth stressing over and how to keep perspective on the whole process than the newlyweds themselves. Here’s what some of our Facebook fans had to share:

“Enjoy every single second… it flies by so quickly… even the planning!” – Melissa

“Don’t get too drunk at the alter xx” – Samantha

“Elope….I wish I had! This is stressful!” – Courtney

“Relax. Don’t sweat the little things. Things will go wrong and there is no reason to stress over it. I had probably one of the worst things happen (my grandpa passed away 4 days before the wedding funeral was day before) everything else that went wrong was nothing compared to that.” – Emily

“Let family and friends help!! I know it’s “YOUR” big day. But you can’t do it all. I was sooo glad that I didn’t mind letting my mother in law, and my mom, and my husbands aunt help out. If I would have been a total control freak, it would have been miserable for me and them!” -Rheanna

“Pick three things you care about the most and let the rest go. I cared about location, the dress and photography. As I found myself crying over the font to use on the napkins that would be thrown away, I realized I was wasting my precious time and energy on things that didn’t matter and/or that I didn’t even care about.” -Brittney

“If your wedding planner has you just breeze through the ceremony rehearsal, and you want to practice it again, practice it again! It’s your day…don’t let someone else dictate what’s important.” -Whitney

“Skip the little (but super costly) details that people won’t even notice/care about.. things like: personalized napkins (they end up in trash anyways.. got to Target or other retailer and get funky/fun solid or patterned ones in your colors…” -Samantha

“Take a few minutes at your reception to stand back and watch all the hard work you did come to life! It was one of my favorite moments when my husband and I sat at our sweetheart table and watched our guests enjoying themselves!!!” -Amy

Momzilla?

We asked — you answered! When it comes to wedding planning does your mother help or hinder? Our fans posted their thoughts on our Facebook page about their wonderfully helpful (or unbearably controlling) moms!

We live about 2500 miles away from home right now, so my mom is planning EVERYthing. Sometimes we argue, but mostly she’s just awesome!! —Cara M. 

My mom has been a complete help! Love her! —Sarah Nicole C.

A little bit of both! It was worse when I first got engaged but it’s gotten better now! —Charmaine R.

Totally hinder….there’s a longer version to that story but i will leave it at that! lol. —Robyn D.

My mom is in a tough spot with my sister getting married this year in a big fancy semi traditional wedding and then I’m doing a destination next year. She’s the best! She is doing everything she can to help, and we are so thankful. —Jennifer C.

Advice for Cooking Your First Thanksgiving Meal

We asked, you answered! Here’s some of your best advice for cooking your first Thanksgiving meal from our Twitter stream and Facebook page:

“Breathe!” -Karyn J.

“Get up early and take your time. If people offer help, TAKE IT. If someone suggests to bring a dish, SAY YES. The first turkey meal is always very stressful so keep a glass of wine handy too.” -Vanessa G.

“Order it!!” -Nicole D.

“Don’t take on too much! Ask all of your guests to bring something and stick to the recipes you know and love…this keeps stress levels down and helps prevent kitchen catastrophes.” -Amy G.

“Start early, drink wine, have fun!” -Lisa L.

“Hire a chef?” -Sarah N.

“Shop for the food early, not on the weekend before or the day before. Preferably Monday when everyone is at work or late at night. Any other time just adds stress! Cook as much as you can or at least prep stuff on Wednesday, so Thursday will be a throw-it-together-early-in-the-morning day and you can enjoy the time with your family.” -Debbie R.

“Let someone else do it!” -Martie G.
