I still get butterflies when I hear "Mrs.Bisset". A wedding can be so stressful and lots of planning BUT I would do it all over again and not change one thing about our big day.
My Husband and I met a few years ago and it was love at first sight. He proposed in Dullstroom on a friend's farm and that set the tone of the wedding, Sean loves his fishing and I wanted to incorporate his passion into our day, not an easy task to do in only eight months and plenty of saving.
Our theme was classic and elegant with a Dullstroom feel: I loved seeing peoples faces when I told them about my colour scheme (most would look at me as if I was crazy). We chose to go with all white with purple,blue and silver.
Not many people could understand what I wanted and how I wanted things but we had great suppliers that really worked well with who we are and could help us portray that in our wedding decor and photos,etc.
I wanted to add a lot of detail to the wedding as that made it special to me, our friend an artist had painted fly canvases as our table numbers and my dad hand made a little chapel for our wedding cards. My favorite part of our video is where the confetti falls as we do our first dance. We really chose to work with things that represented us and that was close to home and meant a lot to us, our pastor was the same pastor that married my aunts and that was my dad's Sunday school teacher.
I had five bridesmaids, two of my bridesmaids were preggers....my one friend went into labor the next morning. We have so many wonderful memories from our wedding and nobodies wedding is perfect things do go wrong but the key is to breathe, relax and just enjoy the day--All the little small things that go wrong just make a better story a few years later.
Your wedding day is so magical but goes so quickly. The few things I would definitely recommend is do what you want and have a videographer.
Love Mr & Mrs Bisset...
