ress, groom, cake – isn’t there all there is to a wedding? That’s what I thought when I was planning Barbie’s wedding as a kid. And sure, the cake (and the groom) were LIBBY CUDMORE plastic, but other than The Wedding Beat a slight upgrade in materials, was there really that much else to think about? Turns out, planning an actual, real-life

wedding isn’t as easy as Barbie made it out to be, and it is very easy to get over-

Luckily, the sixth annual Foothills Bridal Expo on Sunday, Jan. 12, in Oneonta – always the first of the year – helped put a lot of it into a little more perspective.

Here’s The Most Important Tip For Brides: Relax, Enjoy

Sylvia Montante of Oneonta models a ruffled dress from Rainbow’s End.

Before modeling dresses at the Foothills Bridal Expo, Ariana Brown of Oneonta gets her hair done by Monica Baxter of Down Under Hair Design in Oneonta.

EXPO/From B1 Weddings in New York City told of a bride she knew who took a $40 floral-arranging class and put her bridesmaids to work the night before making centerpieces. “Save the Dates,” invitations, favors, decorations are all good places to get creative, but Fallon advised giving yourself at least two months and to only take on for or five projects total. “It’s fun at first, but when you’re doing 150 favors, you’re over it,” she said. 2) …And Know What’s Best Left to Pros: “Don’t make your wedding dress, veil, food or cake,” Fallon warned. “If you’re the type of girl whose glue gun has never been out of the package, now is not the time to try it out.” 3) Be Wary on the Internet: Pinterest and Etsy are godsends for brides, but when it comes to the most important item of the wedding – the dress – leave that to the professionals. Norah Doyle of Rainbow’s End Weddings and More trotted out two versions of the same dress – the one she had in store, and the one a pennypinching bride bought online from China for $150. Except when the dress showed up, shrink-wrapped and wrapped in layers of tape, it wasn’t the dress the bride tried on in the store. “You’re absolutely right,” Norah told her. “It’s a knock-off.” The petticoat didn’t even cover the length of the dress and the flowers – where there were some – looked like a tissue paper flowers from a kindergarten project. “If it looks too good to be true,” she warned. “It probably is.”

Jen Bartel, Morris Tent Rental’s wedding planner, stands inside the tent set up in Atrium during the sixth annual Foothills Bridal Expo, always the first of the year, Sunday, Jan. 12.

4) Set an Extra Place: “Mother Nature is going to be a guest at your wedding, whether you like it or not,” said Tim Dolan, owner of Cooperstown Event Rentals. Even a wedding in bright sunny July can get rained out, so if you’re planning outdoor nuptials, make sure you have a tent or back-up venue in case of unwelcome weather. 5) Put Down the iPhone: Your best friend’s phone may be great for chronicling a night out, but you don’t want to trust them with the photos you’ll be looking at for the rest of your life. “Sometimes I go to these weddings and I see

everyone with their phones, taking photos, and I wonder why they hired me,” confessed photographer Devan Johnson. “Then I see the photos up on Facebook, and I know why they hired me!” According to photographer Jessah Serafini, some people are even opting for gadget-free ceremonies, allowing no pictures but the ones the photographer takes during the ceremony. “They want their families to be fully present in the wedding,” she said. But the most important thing everyone, from Norah and Fallon to the vendors themselves, said, was

Weddings

to relax and enjoy. “No one will know that the napkins were the wrong color or you got the wrong hors d’oeuvres,” said Norah. “I knew a bride who stressed herself out so much that she passed out and had to be taken to the hospital. She missed her own reception – don’t be that bride.” “This is your day,” said Fallon. “Dream it up and execute it wholeheartedly. It’s all about love and family.” Hometown Oneonta/Freeman’s Journal reporter Libby Cudmore is planning her own wedding, to photographer Ian Austin.
