Rob and Kristin used the In Bloom Invitation and RSVP for their wedding.

What was your highlight of the day?
The highlight of the day was doing a "First Look," where Rob and I saw each other for the first time before the wedding. It was such an emotional, private time where we had the opportunity to really be there in the moment -- just the two of us -- and take it all in. The reception was also a big highlight because we could finally let out a big sigh of relief and really let loose (and dance our butts off).

Is there anything you would have liked to do differently?
I would have asked for more help initially in the planning process. I took on too much and it ended up stressing me out. Thankfully we decided to hire a day-of wedding coordinator, which was a HUGE stress (and sanity) reliever!

Do you have any advice to couples that are planning their upcoming wedding?
Don't get lost in all the small DIY details -- no one really notices them anyway. Do a "First Look" with your photographer so you can have that one moment where it's just the two of you. If your budget allows, hire a day-of wedding coordinator. The most important piece of advice is not to loose sight of what the day really is all about -- two people deeply in love, surrounded by a wealth of love -- joining together as one love. All the rest is just icing on the cake.
