Client Spotlight-Alayna | Magnificent Moments Weddings Bride

We here at Magnificent Moments Weddings get to work with some pretty amazing couples and we love nothing more than helping them make their wedding dreams come true.  So it is time again to shine our client spotlight another amazing bride! We want to share how awesome they are with you and give them the opportunity to relive their special day! So this month we reached out to Alayna Ruen and asked her to share her greatest memories and any tips she may have for soon to be brides!

Alayna and Aaron were married at Stony Mountain Vineyards in Albermarle, North Carolina on September 1st, 2018.  Their family-friendly event was full nothing else but love, laughter, and of course fun (Want to know all the details about Alayna’s big day?  Check out her real wedding feature on the blog here!). Since Alayna was such a great bride to work with, we wanted to sit down and ask her all about her experience, from the high to the lows, and here’s what she shared.

What was your greatest memory of your day?

My greatest memory was marrying the love of my life and seeing everything come together for our special day. All the months of planning and organizing paid off, it was perfect.

Do you have any advice for brides still in the planning process?

My advice would be to make sure you give yourself enough time to plan all the details and to have a wedding planner. I was so glad I hired a planner because I couldn’t have been able to enjoy my day without their help. You really only want to have to worry about getting ready and not tripping down the aisle 🙂

Is there anything you would change about your wedding day?

The only thing I would have changed was to give more time to dance and mingle with my guests, it all just goes so fast.

Why did you choose MMW?

I had gone to a few bridal shows and had spoken with many planners, but MMW was the only one that had made an impression on me. Amanda really went out of her way to answer any questions and help me in deciding what kind of planner I needed. They got to know me as a person not just as a client.

Would you recommend hiring a wedding coordinator/planner to other brides?

I would definitely recommend hiring a planner. There are so many things that you forget along the way that you may need. MMW had everything covered for me and handled all communication with my vendors. I couldn’t have had my perfect day without Shelby and the MMW crew.
