Take Into Account Who You Are as a Couple

The wedding should be a party that represents who you are and where you are in life. Says Gail, "the most important thing to us was that we wanted the wedding to reflect us. Who we are as a couple. We didn't do what our mothers wanted, we did what we wanted."

Gail cites the wine they poured: Instead of buying one white and one red, she offered several different varietals that meant something to her and her husband-to-be. "We had a very special romantic trip to Italy, so we chose an Italian red wine we enjoyed on that trip. My dad is from South Africa, so we poured a South African white. Our favorite wine to drink in Summer is rosé, so we served that, too."

This is a great "article"! It's very informative and I love that Gail is so down to earth with her ideas. It's nothing too over-the-top so even a small town bride could use these suggestions. Thanks!
