V102: Savvy Style Advice - Melissa Miller, Real Bride

Savvy Style Advice
Melissa Miller

MELISSA MILLER My best advice is to take your time and ENJOY the wedding planning process. We started planning 15 months in advance, so we never felt rushed to choose our vendors or to book everything at once. Because of this we were able to choose the best vendors. In my opinion this is the secret to end up with the wedding of your dreams! Whenever you get overwhelmed or stressed out, take a step back and remind yourself that your wedding day will be the best day of your life and everything you have ever dreamt it to be. (Trust me, it really will be!) All of the planning is definitely worth it when I think back to our wedding day. I can honestly say I wish I could do it all again...and again.

What It’s Like to Be a Ceci Bride: The Ceci New York creative process was by far the most exciting and rewarding part of our wedding planning! Custom invitations give you a glimpse into what your wedding will look and feel like before your big day. Ceci turns all your wedding dreams and ideas into an inspiration board and from there creates the most beautiful interpretation of your wedding through her custom invitation designs. She truly is a designer, and there is no limit to what Ceci can do. She even had the ruched tulle bellybands hand-sewn for our invites! Plus, she keeps the whole design process so organized by creating a timeline she really sticks to. As for the final product, every little detail on the invites was perfection and of the highest quality. The paper and the letterpress was out-of-this-world gorgeous! To say that our invitations were perfect is an understatement!
