Post Wedding Survey: Taryn and Zac

 
Q. What was the best part of your wedding day?
A. This is so hard to answer because the entire day was fabulous. But honestly, the ceremony had to be the best part, because that's what the day was all about. And the Rabbi really set the tone for one beautiful occasion. To top that all off, everything was so beautifully put together and stress free on my part because Amber and her team did such a fantastic job of setting everything up, coordinating vendors, etc.

Q. What do you feel was totally unnecessary?
A. Hmm.. the only thing we can think of is that we ordered way too much food.

Q. What would you change, if anything?
A. The day was perfect. The only thing that didn't happen that I noticed was the bocce ball set that we had didn't get set up next to the hall- but we didn't give very good directions on that so we understood.

Q. What was unexpected that you loved?
A. The way the reception hall came together with all of our little details was unexpected in that we couldn't imagine what it would all look like- but it looked so amazing. Also, the way the photographer scouted out the venue and picked such amazing places for us to take pictures was great. I also loved how Amber set up the guest book by the ceremony site, I didn't expect it to be there, but the whole set up was beautiful.

Q. What are your fondest memories of your wedding day?
A. I think just having so much fun that I never left the dance floor (and this is the bride talking!) :)  Just seeing all of our friends and family having such a good time. Laughing and crying during the ceremony.

Q. Is there anything you wish you had spent more time or money on?
A. The only thing I would have liked to get that we didn't have was a videographer; but I knew going in that it was out of our budget, and I would've rather gotten the amazing photographer that we had.

Q. Is there anything you wish you had spent less time or money on?
A. I think I wasted time looking into live music for the ceremony, because the recorded stuff sounded great.

Q. Were there any unexpected surprises or issues?
A. I (Taryn) didn't get my wedding ring on time- but that's just because I ordered it online 3 weeks before the wedding and the company did a terrible job of telling me when I'd get it. But it wasn't that bad, I wasn't expecting to get it on time since I waited so long, and we just planned on using the engagement ring instead.

Q. What's your number #1 tip for future engaged couples?
A. Hire Amber. :)
And give yourself enough time to plan everything in order to enjoy the process and have fun- that's what we did and we really loved the whole process because we didn't feel too stressed or rushed. Also, if you're going to go all out and have a big wedding, try to personalize it in some way, it makes it that much more special.

Q. How did you feel after the wedding?
A. Euphoric. We wished the wedding could just keep going.

I came across your blog while looking around, trying to get to know local vendors. This survey is such a good idea - I'd be interested to see how many brides happen upon it while looking to answer some of their own pre-wedding questions.
