Newlywed Interview with Julie Walker {48}

I interviewed newlywed Julie Walker about her wedding day to give some insight for those currently planning one! Julie & Chip tied the knot on May 1, 2010 in Olympia, WA

Q: If you could go back, what are one or two little details would you change?
A: Honestly, I loved everything about my wedding. There were some hiccups, but nothing major. If I had to change one thing, I would change the temperature of the room our ceremony was in. I thought it was too hot, and very uncomfortable.

Q: What was your favorite moment from your wedding day?
A: Our favorite moment from the wedding was the reception. Mostly because we were able to let go of the stress and have fun!

Q: What do you wish you would have spent MORE of your budget on?
A: I wish we would have spent more money on flowers. I would have liked a bigger bouquet. 

Q: What do you wish you would have spent LESS of your budget on?

A: I wish we would have spent less money on the venue. It was a bit pricier than I wanted. But in the end, it turned out perfectly.

Q: What was your favorite planning resource (magazines, websites, advice from others, etc.)

A: My friends were my greatest planning resource.

Q: How did you go about choosing your venue & date? Do you recommend the beginning of May for a wedding?

A: We had heard about the venue through the grapevine, and after looking at two other venues, it was our favorite. We were married at the beginning of May, therefore we had to compete with prom and mother's day. But we booked the venue so far in advance that there weren't any problems. I would recommend getting married at the beginning of May.

A: I would advise future brides to find out what they like and don't like. It helps if you go to other people's weddings because you can then determine what you like or don't like about their wedding. Also, put your foot down. Don't be bridezilla, but fight for things that you really want. In the end, you may be also working with your mother and mother-in-law, and it can be difficult to please everybody, as well as yourself.
