Advice to other brides: Spend the time leading up to your ceremony exactly as you want to. Before hair and makeup with my bridesmaids, I spent the morning sitting outside with my mom and dad, just the three of us. It was such a special way to spend those hours, and I didn’t worry about what anyone else was doing. Also, wear comfortable shoes!
