KAYLA WEDS DYLAN

Kayla and Dylan. Their wedding was beyond beautiful. It included amazing details like framed engagement pictures, personalized groomsmen flasks, and a lot of DIY projects that were finished under pressure and a little last minute (more on that in episode 41 and 42).

It happens often that in the division of labor for wedding tasks, the groom makes his own list of to dos. Outside of the typical ‘order late night pizza’ or ‘pick up kegs’, Dylan had a unique set of projects, including (but not limited to): build a platform stage, build wood pillars, spray paint 45+ lanterns, and unwrap over 100 candles.

And he accomplished it all.

Also impressive, even without full nights of sleep leading up to the wedding Dylan was still calm and collected on his wedding day. Kayla had her own extensive to do list and together this couple pulled off a wedding that featured a lot of crowd pleasing moments: a kissing menu, mini guest favors that doubled as place cards and meal markers, a kabuki streamer send off (for newlywed photos), and plenty of cake.

 

6 THINGS WE CAN LEARN

  1. Do not save DIY projects for last minute!

  2. Place cards don’t need to be boring, think outside the box and incorporate your favors or meal markers

  3. If you go for ice cream during your cocktail hour, bring your photographers

  4. Guests can’t eat dinner until you eat dinner so be mindful of how long you keep them waiting

  5. If you invite college friends to your wedding, be sure to sing a college song

  6. A whole wedding group photo is easily captured on the dance floor
