Check out what famous brides Kendra Wilkinson, Trista Sutter and Melissa Rycroft have to share with Kim!
Trista Sutter:You have to try to experience your wedding to the fullest without focusing on the fact that millions of other people are essentially invited,” says former Bachelorette Trista Sutter, whose televised 2003 ceremony with Ryan Sutter was watched by an estimated 17 million people. “It’s really important to focus on the actual physical experience in person instead of concentrating too much on the cameras.”
Trista also recommends that Kim have her ceremony indoors because the hubbub around her own wedding made it noisy: “That was the biggest bummer at my wedding. They actually had speakers in every row for every guest — except in the first row. The first row, of course, was my immediate family and Ryan’s, and they couldn’t hear anything!”
Melissa Rycroft: “This is a day that is supposed to happen just once in your lifetime, so live it up,” says Bachelor Pad co-host Melissa Rycroft, who married Tye Strickland on a beach in Mexico in 2009.
“Laugh as much as possible, and just enjoy every moment. my favorite memories from our wedding are the little times that tye and i would sneak away from everything, step back and look at the party going on and just take a moment for ourselves. you want those moments that you’ll remember at the end.”
Kendra Wilkinson: When Kendra Wilkinson married Hank Baskett in 2009, she kept her $20,000 silk wedding gown under lock and key. “Imade sure my dress was in a completely separate room and that no one went in there,” Kendra, who wed at the playboy mansion, tells OK!.
She says weddings should be all about the celebration. “good music is key,” Kendra advises. “if there is good music then people are dancing and having fun, and nothing else matters.”
