About this Episode

Weddings are a special day, and though you want them to be beautiful and picturesque, it is also important to create a unique experience and long lasting memories. Aleah and Nick Valley of Valley and Co share about their favorite wedding experiences, their coffee table book "Storied Weddings," and give loads of great advice on how to make a great day no matter how big the wedding.

Big Takeaways

You are not planning just a photoshoot, you're planning a memory. Great pictures are the ones that are taken at a great event. You want to enjoy the memories for life. It's so helpful to make the event for everyone. Help your guests find the lay of the land right away. Where are they sitting? Where are the bathrooms? Where should they hang their coats, etc? Maybe have greeters who provide a beverage upon arrival and answer all these questions.

If you are planning on giving favors at your wedding, think about whether the guests can use it or eat it. If not, then think about using the money on something else to make the big day special. Small mementos are not make or break and should be an enjoyable possession after the wedding is over.
