1) Was WedPics a part of your special day?

We used WedPics throughout the planning of our entire wedding.  Pictures from the tasting, dress shopping, tux shopping, florist, even people attending the bachelor party were uploading to the app.

2) If you could choose just one, what was your favorite moment from the wedding weekend?

We both have our favorite moments from the weekend.  Jon’s favorite moment was hearing the speeches from our Best People (we didn’t have a best man or bridesmaid, they were all our ‘Best People’) and they all shared the duties of the maid of honor and best man throughout the planning process. Matt’s favorite moment was having the photographers following us around like the paparazzi snapping photos!

3) What kind of personal touches did you add to your wedding, did you have a decor theme?

As far as the decor went, we decided something that a bit more Art-Deco/Gatsby inspired. We kept the decor in keeping with that of the hotel which was a contemporary setting. We wanted it all to flow nicely!

4) Did you experience any challenges while planning your wedding?

We didn’t experience any challenges while planning!  I was our “wedding planner” and I had searched for a check list via Google that allowed me to stay on top of things.  It all went without a hitch!

5) If you could give one piece advice for future couples planning their wedding, what would that be?

As far as advice, we set a date that was a year out so I would advise couples to do the same.  We were therefore able to tackle things in a monthly manner, one big thing per month.  We first started with the venue in the first month so we knew where to have our vendors go.  As financially draining as weddings could be, we were able to pay for the entire wedding ourselves with cash because we took our time!  This also allows for stress-free planning because you are able to get in on deals as they become available. We were also able to get some Black Friday deals on our DJ and photo booth!
