from Natalie:

What was most important to me on our wedding day was that we got to ENJOY the day from beginning to end. That would be my biggest piece of advice to any bride - envision your perfect wedding day and plan for it just like you have the actual wedding. I personally wanted to spend quality time with my family and closest girlfriends while getting ready, marry the man of my dreams and throw a fantastic party. 
I arranged to have a space at the venue where my girlfriends and I could get ready and be there to answer any questions and ensure everything for the set up ran smoothly. The makeup artist and hair stylist came to us and we had food/drinks and champagne. It was a great day. I did a first look with Matthew so that we could have some private moments together and have most of the photos taken before the ceremony. It was important to us that we got to enjoy the cocktail hour and reception with friends and family, and having most of the photos complete enabled us to do that and maximize our time. 
Another key thing for me was to remember that as long as we were married at the end of the day, none of the other stuff really mattered. Things will go wrong. Some things went wrong on our wedding day.....but they all got resolved one way or another. Things won't go exactly as you planned no matter how much you plan, so just focus on what really matters. No one will remember small details in a year - but they will remember that you got married and that they had a good time. The bride and groom set the tone, so just be happy and enjoy!
