Let's put some south in your mouth is some good ol' southern advice that might help you while you are planning your wedding. 

You get more flies with honey than vinegar.  Seriously, you are going to need help all along the way and the nicer you are, the more people will want to help you.  I have encountered brides that think since this is their day they can throw one conniption fit after another and everyone will just have to deal with it.  Well some won't stick around and you will be busier than a one-legged man in a butt kicking contest if you don't have any help!

Well, sure it is your day, but it is also an important day for your parents, your future in-laws, your groom and all of your friends that are participating.  Don't get your feathers ruffled and remember that these are the most important people in your life and you want to show them your appreciation for sharing your special day with you.  Be thankful to everyone who agrees to participate in your wedding and make sure you shower them with thoughtfulness.  It will come back to you tenfold.

Be nice to your vendors, they are professionals and they will provide you with the best solutions to make your vision a reality. Have open, honest communication with them and they will understand exactly what you want. Be nice and they will bend over backwards to make you happy. People want to help others who are respectful and appreciative of their work.  So don't fly off the handle when something doesn't turn out exactly the way you thought it would.

So before you go off half cocked and let your mouth overload your butt, take a deep breath and put a big smile on your face and say "I do declare, I am a lucky bride!"

Now put that in your pipe and smoke it!

because every bride deserves a Perfectly Planned wedding....kelly

  1. Hi Kelly,
    I enjoyed my visit to your beautiful blog. My mom was from Arkansas & she had more southern expressions than "you could shake a stick at". My favorite was "uglier than home-made sin". Ha ha. Thanks for reminding me about these fun memories.

    Warmly, Michelle
