How to have a Satisfying Wedding Experience
In the days following their weddings, most brides and grooms reflect on the experience a great deal – what worked, what they wish they had done differently, what they would do if they could do it all over. In our years of wedding photography, we have seen one thing that makes a wedding successful. Attention to Detail.
Wedding planning can be maddening because most couples haven’t done it before. Yet, they need to create one of the most important experiences of their lives! Attention to detail which starts long before the actual event, is critical. If a bride is not naturally a good record keeper or organizer, this is the time to get someone to help.
The second most important thing is not to procrastinate, but to act decisively. That can be difficult when you don’t feel like you know what you’re doing. If ever there was a time in your life to renounce procrastination, wedding planning is it. Book your venue, your photographer, your officiant, your caterer etc., as early as possible. Ask them to help you think everything through. In photography, engagement sessions are particularly helpful in the realm of attention to detail. A photographer who is shooting your photos for a second time will know how the camera sees you. All people are photogenic with an excellent photographer, especially if he or she has the advantage of time. The secret to a satisfying wedding experience is Attention to Detail…Now!
