Wedding Q+A With MonAmye

I have Amye stopping by to share her beautiful wedding story with you all today :)

When did you get married ( Month, date, year)
July 29 2012
How did you meet? / or Engagement Story? ( Whichever one you would like to write about, or both if you wish)
He popped the big question on the Georgetown Waterfront in Washington, DC. Unknowingly, because it was a surprise, I resisted the entire day and almost ruined it all! But the story has a happy ending :) For all the details, I wrote our engagement story here: Part 1 and Part 2
Engagement Story | Wedding Wednesday |

How many bridesmaids did you have? How did you go about choosing them?
I had four wonderful bridesmaids, and decided not to have a maid of honor - each of them are special, I couldn't choose just one! Each lady had certain designated tasks based on her personality and skills, and so each played an important part of the big day. Having four also made it manageable, rather than overwhelming, in the bridal suite before the ceremony. I felt surrounded by love and support from all of the important women in my life.

Spill some deets that went on. We wanna hear drama:
It was overcast all morning, and of course we had planned an outdoor ceremony AND an outdoor, un-tented dinner. There was an indoor "Plan B" which was beautiful, but not our dream day.
At one point everyone was looking at me to "call it" and move everything inside, and because we didn't want to see each other my groom and I were playing "messenger" down the hallway - it was awful! He didn't really know how I was feeling. I didn't want to make a decision for Us all by myself. And the clouds kept threatening.
Finally the photographer said to me "I do this every weekend. Keep it outside." I took the gamble. An hour later the clouds parted and blue skies appeared. I was relieved, to say the least, and so grateful that I trusted the expert!

What was your color scheme, and what made you choose it?
Our colors were a ballet pink with silver accents. Before any other decisions were made, I knew that I didn't want to commit to any bold colors, preferring a more neutral palette.
When we found our historic venue I knew a soft, antique-y look would work well to enhance rather than compete with the space. Then one of the bridesmaids found a dress in a soft peachy pink, and the decision was made for us! It was the perfect dress, and only came in one color, so that was it.

Did you do any DIY projects/etc?
We planned and prepared the whole wedding day ourselves, so I feel like the whole thing was DIY - down to buying everything for the bar! (it's a Pennsylvania thing). One thing I can point to, I suppose, was our "photo booth" props. We found this funky frame at Ikea and removed the glass, added some printable/DIY props and a couple fun family members and voila! An entire album of personality to cherish.

(there are so many good ones from the booth...but this is a fave!)

What was your favorite thing about your wedding day?
Favorite moment of the day, hands down, was finding my groom alone in the foyer after being separated for a while during the reception. It was nearing the end of the day, and all I wanted to do was see my guy! We had just a few moments before being discovered, but those quiet, stolen, ordinary moments - chatting, and then dancing when a fun song came on - were my favorite of the whole day.

If you could do it all over again, what would you do differently?
I can't think of much that I would have changed about our wedding day. It wasn't perfect, but at the end we were married among family and friends and threw a great party to celebrate! I made my new husband drive away reallllyyyy slowwwllly because I just didn't want that wonderful night to end.
What's your best piece of advice for future brides out there?
Everyone says don't stress, but that can be difficult to avoid. I'd say try to press pause between each moment of the day and just take a breath.
Hair and make up done? (pause, be still, clear your mind for just two seconds.) Dress and veil? (pause) Ready to walk down the aisle? (pause) Photo time with your love? (pause)
It is really just two seconds each time, no one even has to know. But it will help re-focus and center you, so you can be truly present to enjoy the moments as they come.
That, and don't be afraid to ditch the veil!


Thanks so much Amye! So glad you were able to have your dream wedding outdoors and taht the clouds cleared up!
