The hardest thing about planning a wedding: Just that… planning and making all the decisions. Also dealing with a lot of different people and their opinions (including vendors)
The best thing you & your fiance have bonded over?: Setting the wedding budget and doing everything we can do in order to stick to it
Piece of advice for future brides: Keep it as simple as you possibly can especially if you are trying to maximize your dollar. Vendors will try their hardest to get you to spend the most amount of money so do not be afraid to shop around and be open minded. Perfection is nearly impossible so let go of things that are out of your control. Also, the less people (bridesmaids/groomsmen) you have I your wedding the better because that will also help cut down on cost.
