What’s the best advice you have for planning your wedding now that you’re on the other side?
We would say don't stress it'll all work out. Remember there is life after the wedding. The wedding is simply a show for the people to see! The real magic starts the day after.
Any tips for anyone planning their wedding right now?
Once again Don't Stress! There will be times where you are like ok I'm done but enjoy the process and the product will be AMAZING!
What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?
Honestly, NONE were personal except my dress. Our wedding planner did the entire thing and his rule was that we weren't able to see the decorations before the actual day of walking in. So we were just as shocked as our guest. My favorite aspect was the guards lined up as I walked down the isle and the Columns with the vase on top! I loved it!
What was your favorite detail?
Our wedding theme was A Royal Evening with the Dukes. My favorite theme were the guards lined up as I walked down the isle and the Columns with the vase on top! I loved it!
What is the most memorable moment of your day?
The most memorable moment I would say was seeing the reaction of my husband as the doors opened and I walked down the isle. Simply because I had done all of my crying while my makeup was being done and he attempted to hold it in but he broke down. To see that made all the stressing over the wedding worth while.
How did you all decide a budget?
Our parents decided the budget for us. I wanted this huge extravagant wedding and my dad had to remind me the real intent and purpose of why everyone was coming together to celebrate. Also, what better way to bring in our new chapter in our lives than standing in the house of the lord.
What are you looking forward to now as Mrs. Dukes?
Now, I am looking forward to teaching my fourth grade students and loving my husband for eternity!
