Today, I’ve got more advice from a real bride! Catherine and Jason’s wedding was in April at the Georgian Terrace, a gorgeous Atlanta landmark.
And now, “meet” Catherine and Jason:
Before the wedding, Catherine and Jason said they wanted their wedding to be: intimate,Playful, flirtatious, romantic, and to show how they’re best friends. And speaking of best friends, they wanted to involve their dog, Dexter. Isn’t he adorable?
Q. What is your best advice for a bride?
Catherine: “Get a planner, even if it is just day off. Anticipate things will not all goes as planned but it is all worth it day of. And If you want to elope – do it. Come back and have 1 hell of a party!”
Jason: “Be involved but not too involved.”
My note: C+J’s wedding planner was the always awesome A Big To Do Events. Erica and her team put together a lovely day, and check out this gorgeous decor!
Q. What was the biggest surprise on your wedding day?
Groom: “How extremely fast it went! It was a blur.”
Catherine: “How calm I was”
Q: What did you love (or hate) about wedding planning? What made it easier?
Catherine: “I hated most of it because I am so indecisive but my mom and planner made it a lot easier. Tasting was a lot of fun and all worth it.”
Jason: “Decisions being so complicated. Getting advice from a professional and someone else’s point of view helped give a different perspective.”
Q: What advice would you give to newly married couples?
C+J: Communicate openly, laugh a lot, share your thoughts, compromise, have fun, don’t take everything so seriously, make time for others, maintain independence and meet/hang out with other married couples.
Q: Is there anything about the wedding day you would have planned differently?
C+J: “No, all the planning does pay off but as long as you are open to things not going 100% to plan all is well.”
Thanks so much to Catherine and Jason for sharing their experience for the blog! I’ll be back with more photos from their gorgeous wedding!
