Wedding Q+A with Meagan

It's been a minute (since July) since I have done a Bride Q+A Post, but now that our wedding is over I have more time on my hands to continue this amazing series!  I think it's really helpful to other bride-to-be bloggers looking for tips for their weddings!

Today I have Meagan from Beautiful Things stopping by to share her Wedding with you!

When did you get married?
Chris and I got married on June 7th, 2014!

How did you meet?
During the summer of 2011 I was a leader for a mission trip to Kenya and Chris was a leader for a mission trip to Brazil, we met during the leader orientation and became friends. After that summer (our lives were forever impacted and changed) I got a job and moved to Atlanta (where Chris happened to live) and we became the best of friends. We started dating a few months later (April 2012) and were engaged in June 2013 (you can read about the proposal here)!

What was the one thing you were most passionate about?
 I just really wanted our wedding to be a perfect representation of the two of us, for the reception to be a party and fireworks...I really wanted fireworks!
How long did it take you to find your wedding dress? 

Okay so this crazy thing happened and I actually won my wedding dress! You can read about that story here

What was your color scheme, and what made you choose it?
Purple + Coral (with some neutral/brown accents). I was apart of Sigma Kappa Sorority in college and one of our colors is purple...so it's always been a fave of mine! I wanted the bridesmaids to alternate colors in their dresses and coral complimented the purple nicely!

What's your best piece of advice for future brides out there?

I have a couple tidbits of advice: people don't RSVP--Crazy right?! You provide the stamp and everything...it gets lost in the junk mail pile I'm convinced. 
People: I need to know how many white chairs to order. So now no matter what the occasion is I always RSVP as soon as possible. pinterest doesn't have to come to life- I pinned lots and lots of things on my wedding board for inspiration. It's impossible to make every single one of them happen! So pick the ones you love, move forward and remember that sometimes it's both easier & cheaper to buy versus the whole DIY approach.) just be you There are tons of trendy ideas and themes out there to choose from. Don't compare yourself to others or try to fit a certain theme. Just do what fits you and your groom's personalities! One of my favorite things about our big day is how many people said that everything about the day matched us perfectly. Trends come and go...be yourself!

How did you go about planning your honeymoon?
We went to Paris...and it was absolutely amazing...read all about it here.

  2. Love all of the different bridesmaids dresses! And yesss to the RSVP thing - that blew my mind! Almost 1/3 of our wedding guests didn't return the card. Now I send mine back the same day I get it!
