Oh, it's over so fast. You hear everyone say "It's just one day," but truly, it is merely that: a day. It is a first day of many happy ones, but it is only one day. Be kind to people and don't obsess about the

details, because you won't care on the day, and your relationships mean so much more and any silly detail. Also, people don't go to these things to be be mean. Everyone is there to love you and support you, so don't be scared. And think, what do YOU remember about other weddings you've gone to? It's not the pew bows, it's how happy the couple was. make sure the wedding is merely a means to an end. It's the marriage you want anyway.

The bride is SO amazingly beautiful that she would have looked incredible in a flour sack. However, if there was a problem with her wedding dress vendor, it is helpful to other brides to detail the nature of the problem. I did a little research and that vendor has any negative reviews from public websites "removed for verification." That does not seem ethical. :(
