3 Brides Share Their Wedding Re Do Stories

When you’re planning your big day, the last thing you’d ever think about is a wedding re do. And that’s as it should be! This is it, your once-in-a-lifetime wedding, your most special of special occasions, and you are planning for perfection. But after the wedding is over, well… There are always one or two or more things–usually little things, but sometimes big ones–that brides might do differently if they had a wedding re do to do. Here, three Houston brides share their “what I might have done differently if I had it to do over again” wedding stories. We, and they, hope these gentle cautionary tales just might help a few current brides-to-be have the wedding they’ve always dreamed of…one that is long on revelry and romance, and super short on regrets.

Kelli and Terry’s delightful green and pink wedding and The Gallery totally reflected their passion for life…and dancing! As general manager of The Breakfast Klub, Houston’s wildly popular comfort-food eatery, Terry naturally picked his place of employment as his wedding caterer, tempting guests’ palates with the restaurant’s signature chicken-fried steak, wings and waffles. Meanwhile, bride Kelli picked a light shade of sage green for the “simple, elegant and fun” celebration she envisioned. These two and their 180 guests took full advantage of The Gallery, a venue Kelli describes as having “beautiful outdoor scenery, with a cozy area inside.” They held their outdoor ceremony in the picturesque courtyard, and their green and pink wedding celebration indoors, where they danced beneath romantic string lights to music provided by a Houston radio station celebrity DJ! We’re so grateful to these sweet lovebirds for sharing their beautiful Houston wedding story with us…and y’all. Congratulations, Kelli & Terry! Click here to read the rest of this post »
