By our real bride, Salliena:


What was the vision for your wedding?


My Pinterest board was way opposite of my wedding. My wedding turned out to be my style how I wanted it and everything I dreamed of! My Pinterest was more inspired by other weddings that didnt fit me but I thought were cute or good ideas!


How did it go the day-of?


The day off was a little stressful overall it went well! My dress fit perfectly, my shoes were amazing. The day was so fast!


What is your #1 tip to future brides?


Hire a wedding coordinator! If more than 100 people!
