Any advice/tips from brides who have already had their big day?
I can give you loads of tips for things you just dont realise until after the wedding...
All the little things you think are important (matching colours, centre peices, baskets for order of service, what you'll wear in the morning!) and stress you out prior to the wedding, really dont matter on the day.
The journey from the church to the reception is probably the only bit of time you'll get to spend with your hubby for the entire day, the rest of it you'll be mingling and chatting with everyone but him/her. The day really does fly by so enjoy every minute.
Go with the flow, if something goes wrong, dont worry about it. As long as you both turn up who cares if aunty margaret gets beef when really she ordered lamb!!
You'll hardly eat/drink anything all day. Order yourselves a bottle of champers and have a stash of snacks for when you get back to your room. You'll both be knackered, but after re-aqainting yourselves as husband and wife you'll be starving a ready for a drink!
Spend as much as you can afford on a photographer. Photos are all you'll have left to show for the wedding after the event and in hindsight I would definately have hired a videography for the ceremony. We decided against it beforehand, but afterwards really regretted it.
I could probably go on and on, if I havent already
