Wedding Q+A With Morgan @ Believe In The Sparks

Today I am happy to announce to have one of my favorite bloggers, Morgan from Believe in the Sparks, over at my blog to discuss her upcoming Wedding Q+A's that I have asked her.
Take it away Morgan!

When is your upcoming wedding?
April 12, 2014

How did you meet? / or Engagement Story?  ( Whichever one you would like to write about, or both if you wish)
Steven proposed on December 20, 2012 at the Alabama Theatre. Every December the theater plays holiday movies leading up to Christmas, so one night Steven and I, along with my parents and brother, decided to go see my favorite Christmas movie, Elf, play. Little did I know that this was all part of a greater plan. After the movie we walked outside to a crowd of people surrounding the marquee. I turned around to see what all the fuss was about when I saw it: "Morgan, Will You Marry Me?" written in lights on top of the marquee. I didn't think it couldn't possibly be for me, but the minute I looked down I saw Steven on one knee holding the most gorgeous ring I had ever seen. Of course I said "Yes!" and the entire crowd broke out in applause. The night Steven put my name in lights was a night that changed my life forever. I'm so lucky to marry someone who put so much thought and effort into giving me the perfect proposal!

How many bridesmaids did you choose? How did you go about choosing them?
It was actually very easy deciding on bridesmaids. have 5 bridesmaids and I consider them all to be more like sisters than friends.- My maid of honor, Rachael, and I have been friends since middle school. My bridesmaid, Cortney, and I also met in middle school when we both started competitive cheerleading. We became fast friends and have continued our friendship for over ten years now. Two of my bridesmaids, Katie and Bailey, are college sorority sisters. We formed a quick bond and spent four years attached at the hip. Lastly, I couldn't imagine my wedding day without my soon-to-be sister in law, Morgan (same name! Isn't that crazy?!), standing by my side.

What is your color scheme, and what made you choose it?

Our colors are different shades of purple - everything from lavender to plum and anything in between. I saw a picture soon after we got engaged with different shades of purple incorporated into a wedding and I fell in love. I told my wedding coordinator about my inspiration and he took off with the idea! I can't wait to see how everything comes together!
What was the most stressful thing you've came across in the planning process?

I know it sounds crazy, but I haven't really felt stress throughout the process. That mostly has to do with the fact that I have the most amazing mom and wedding coordinator on the planet! Seriously, my mom is loving every minute of the planning, and I am loving having her throughout this process. 
What are you most passionate about leading to the big day?

Finally becoming a wife to the man of my dreams! We have been engaged for 14 long months, so I am itching to get down that aisle and say "I do" to my husband!
If you could start planning all over, what would you do differently?

Don't rely too heavily on Pinterest. Long before Pinterest came along I envisioned having a southern, rustic wedding, however, Pinterest has all but run that idea into the ground. Thankfully (again) I have a wedding coordinator who sees past all the Pinterest fads and has promised to give me exactly what I've always dreamed of having without it looking like it came straight from the internet.
What's your best piece of advice for future brides out there?

Don't rush things! You only get to be a bride one time, so soak in every minute of it. Everything will work out in the end, so don't stress (too much) and don't worry about the things that you can't control. In the end you will walk away with your husband and that is most definitely the most important part of the day!
