Favorite Wedding Moment for Illinois Brides

May 24, 2016 | Real Weddings, Summer Weddings

When we ask this question to our brides after their wedding, most of them we have found will say doing a first reveal was their very favorite part of their wedding day.
It was no different for Justin and Jackie.  She stated “I would have to say that my favorite memory was seeing Justin for the first reveal at my parents’ house.  The look on his face when he turned around to see me was priceless!

“If time allows and you’re not opposed to seeing your significant other before the wedding ceremony, I highly recommend doing a first reveal beforehand!  I loved that we got to spend some time together before the ceremony that was just focused on us, because we knew we wouldn’t get any alone time for the rest of the day.  It definitely helped calm my nerves!”

Did everything go as planned?  “For the most part, everything went as planned (woo hoo!).  We were actually ahead of schedule for the majority of the day.  I’m a very go-with-the-flow type of person, so even if everything didn’t go as planned, it wouldn’t have bothered me.”

Would you change anything if you could do it over?  “I don’t think I would change a single thing.  Everyone that we talked to had nothing but nice things to say about the wedding and reception!  Justin and I both enjoyed ourselves, and I wasn’t stressed the entire day.”

Any advice or tips for newly engaged couples?  “Just go-with-the-flow on your wedding day.  Understand that not everything will go exactly as you planned – which is totally fine!  Weddings have a lot of moving pieces – days like this usually go much more smoothly when you don’t have things planned down to the minute.  Even if something doesn’t go as planned, your guests will never know something was supposed to happen differently, so it really doesn’t matter!  Also, the day flies by, so take the time to notice and appreciate all of the details and people around you!”

For her bridal bouquet, Jackie chose sunflowers with blue veronica, a touch of baby’s breath and cascading mixed greens.  For her bridesmaid’s bouquets she chose sunflowers with white stock and yellow solidago.
