Wedding Planning: La La Anthony’s 5 Wedding Tips For You
She wed her beau on TV (way before Kate), will have a front-and-center seat at the Kardashian version of the royal wedding, and knows a thing or two about balancing mommyhood, a career and life as a newlywed. So who better to turn to for wedding advice than La La Anthony? (And yes, she certainly has come a long way since her TRL VJ days.)
__Do It Your Way
__”When it comes to marriage, there are no rules, so don’t try to follow what your friends have done. Work within the realms of your own relationship. My husband, Carmelo Anthony, and I were engaged for four years before we got married. Sure, that’s abnormal, but we did it our way and it worked for us.”
__Nothing’s That Serious
__”There’s a ton to plan for the big day, but trust me, the actual wedding will be over before you know it! All that planning and preparation goes by so fast, so just enjoy it. After all, this should be the happiest time of your life.”
__Soak It All In
__”I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your wedding day is going to be a bit crazy and chaotic—it’s unavoidable. So be sure to take a moment, look around the room, and just take it all in. All of those people are there for you. Khloe [Kardashian] gave me that advice, and I gave it to Kim, too.”
__Ditch the Registry
__”You don’t have to stick to the registry—it’s cool to mix things up, but only if you have a close relationship with the bride and groom. I know that Kim [Kardashian] loves robes, so I know what I’ll be giving her, regardless of what’s on her registry.”
__Keep it Fresh
__”Just because you’re married doesn’t mean that everything is serious and you have to live by the book of what a wife is “supposed” to be. Have fun! Plan a date night once a week, or whenever you can. Whether you’re trying a new restaurant, going to a movie or planning a Skype date, be sure to carve out time just for the two of you.”
