We asked Gina what advice she would give future DIY brides. She graciously replied:
"Make a fun inspirational collage of things that make you happy and wedding details you love. It will really help you get a feel for the style of wedding you wish to plan. Just always remember that after all that planning, when the wedding day comes, you really just need to take everything with a grain of salt and laugh at the little things. On our wedding day, just after I walked down the isle he stepped on the train of my dress, and you could hear a big RIP noise. I just tilted my head back in laughter and the congregation at the church followed in laughter. I really think it set the mood for our evening."
We think Gina is spot on! Their "let's just enjoy the day" attitude helped them relax and let their true feelings for each other show.
