My sweet bride Liddy (whose wedding you can read about HERE or see as a Style Me Pretty feature HERE or see their four-page spread in Wedding Magazine UK HERE) recently took time to answer my post-wedding questionnaire, which not only helps me with bettering my wedding planning skills, but also offers some insight to engaged couples everywhere! Here's what she and her husband Cody had to say!

What was the best part of your wedding day?

What (if anything) would you change?
Less wine, more tequila!
Is there anything you wish you had spent more time or money on?
I really can't think of anything
Is there anything you wish you had spent less time or money on?
Everything was so perfect, I would not have changed anything! Everything that we splurged on was completely worth it in the end.
How did you feel after the wedding?
What is your #1 tip for future brides and grooms?
Pick great vendors and let them do all the work! Don't micromanage and give too much direction - if you pick vendors you trust and know you like what they have done in the past, they will do a great job withougt too much input! Just give them a sense of what you want and let them roll with it. These people know what they are doing way better than you do. And...Hire Krista! :)
What part of my service was the most important to you?
Everything, seriously! I don't know what I would have done without you. Your amazing ability to make the day perfect and exactly what I wanted.
What part of my service was the least important to you?
Everything you did was important!
How would you rate the quality of my service?
Amazing Amazing Amazing
Would you recommend me to another bride or groom?
Without a doubt! THANK YOU KRISTA!!!!!
Anything else you'd like to say?
Hiring Krista was the best decision I made during my wedding planning process. She took over six weeks before my wedding day, and in this time took all the pieces I had gathered and made it all WORK!
Before Krista came into my life, I was becoming more and more confused and frightened the closer my wedding day approached. The moment she started working on my wedding I was confident in her ability to make my wedding exactly what I wanted – she knows what she is doing, knows my venue, and is oh-so-organized. She went along with all my ideas, and gently molded them into a way that made sense and made everything work together.
Her performance during the wedding was also incredible. She kept me calm, made sure everyone knew what was going on, and provided an overall sense that nothing could go wrong because she was prepared for absolutely anything. I had so much fun at my wedding and I credit Krista for allowing me to relax and enjoy it because I knew that everything was under control in her hands. It was the best wedding ever. THANK YOU KRISTA!! xoxo
