What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
My family used a wedding planner to help with planning my wedding, and she did an absolute fantastic job. Meagan Warren Weddings planned and designed a majority of the wedding, and was present on the day of to help coordinate and keep everything running smoothly. I used Meagan’s advice for almost everything, from picking out vendors, colors, and even flowers. Of course my family helped with the planning process as well, but Meagan was the top contributor!
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
We looked at many different factors, but we mostly tried to use the vendors that Meagan recommended. She gave us advice based on reputation, ease to work with, and even budget. We looked at their previous work and recommendations from other locals.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
The inspiration for my wedding was mostly keeping the day as simple as possible, while having a very classic and romantic look. I wanted the flowers to be a focal point of the decorations, but we also wanted the guests to be as comfortable and entertained as possible, so we focused on details that were simple and understated. Once again, I wanted the flowers to be a focal point, so we based the remainder of the details around the flowers.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
The part when I got to kiss my husband of course :) Other than that, I loved every minute of the reception. I was able to speak with so many people that I haven’t seen in years, and I was so touched that people made time to come celebrate with myself and my husband! I loved the first dance with my husband the most I think!
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
I would definitely recommend doing everything possible to avoid stressing out on the big day. I felt like I was able to 100% enjoy my wedding day because I knew that Meagan Warren would take care of anything that might cause me any stress. I had such a great support system with Meagan and my family to help, and I was able to really take in everything wonderful about the day, and can look back and say I was never stressed or anxious throughout the day. I was just so happy and thrilled to be with my husband and family and friends.
It’s so wonderful to hear that Valerie truly enjoyed her wedding day and was able to avoid any bit of stress or anxiety thanks to the assistance of her wedding planner! That is absolutely how it should be for all couples! Oh, and how stunning are the florals? I love that Valerie’s goal for the wedding design was to have beautiful florals- it all came together gorgeously!
