Hot tip: Enjoy the day as it goes by so fast, don’t stress about little things that don’t go to plan, as no-one will know except you. We had one of the cars overheat, we had to travel about 35km to the homestead and were 45 minutes late, we laughed it off, nothing like being late! Our reception went so smoothly yet we had no time schedule, we just went with it. My husband is Samoan and some of the nieces and nephews did traditional dances. We did our wedding on the smallest budget so this just proves you don’t have to spend big to have a GREAT day. We had a fantastic day and I am still smiling xxxx
What they loved: The detail: Not too much but enough, when I went to buy a dress I knew what I wanted in my head and it wasn’t a big princess style dress, it was a beach style dress but I didn’t like them on I was shown the Kalinka, I wasn’t sure about it as it was exactly what I said I wasn’t going to have (a big dress and a veil) well to my surprise when I put it on, oh my god, I felt like a bride, I loved it, it was the one. So you don’t know until you try. One person said to me it was sexy but sophisticated at the same time, so many said they loved the dress.
