WEDDING COUPLE: Scot and Melanie Munro

INSTAGRAM: @cherryleelewis

WEDDING DATE: October 12 2019

WHERE DID YOU MEET: We met through friends in high school. We have been friends for over 15 years, but always dated other people. In 2017, the stars aligned and Scot asked me on our first “date” which I didn’t know was an actual date… the rest is history!

WEDDING STYLE: Dark Glamour

THE WEDDING DAY:

Our day was perfect. I have been in the events industry for over 10 years and did most of the planning myself. It had been a bit stressful leading up to the day (naturally) but when the day came, we were both so relaxed and prepared that even if there was a hiccup, we wouldn’t have been too bothered.

We decided we wanted to do a first look to keep things relaxed, and to take advantage of the time prior to the ceremony, to take photos with our bridal party. Our ceremony didn’t start till 5pm, so we didn’t want our guests waiting around while we did photos.

The ceremony went off perfectly – short and sweet. The bridal party walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of a Rancid song, and me to an instrumental Elvis song (we got engaged at Graceland!)

Between our ceremony and dinner, we had each guest join us on the stage for a photo (everyone really commented on how much they loved this, and it was perfect to print a 4×6 and add to their thank you cards)

We had a buffet dinner with speeches throughout. Following dinner, we had our first dance. An Elvis song played and when the chorus hit, our entertainment – an Elvis impersonator reveled himself and continued with the rest of our dance then into a full half hour set to get the party started!!

Elvis came back for another set and we rocked and rolled all night. He was a huge hit and we were so happy we kept this portion a surprise!

BRIDESMAIDS/MEN WEAR:

Bridesmaids – Dresses from JJ’s House
Groomsmen – Moores

TIPS ON GUESTS: Try not to lose your mind too much over things like seating charts!

BUDGET SAVING IDEAS: My favorite budget saving tip is to check out prom dresses. I wanted something pretty specific (and very glittery) I wasn’t having any luck with traditional wedding dress shops so I tried a prom dress store. I found my perfect dress for $600. The staff at the store told me that so many dresses actually do come in white or ivory but usually don’t put them on the floor so you just have to ask!

WEDDING FAVOURS: We did custom matchbooks. They were inexpensive and felt very retro-cool (both of our parents had matchbooks at their weddings)

TIPS FOR FUTURE BADASS BRIDES: As stressful as it can get, try to enjoy the process. This is a huge exciting part of your life and you should enjoy it as much as possible! Everyone is also going to have an opinion on every aspect – who you should and shouldn’t invite, what you should serve at the bar, what the invitations should look like… Just remember this is a special day for you and your future groom and only you know what is best for the two of you!
