Guest Blog: A Word From The Groom.
Matthew Sanchelli is a self-proclaimed “nice guy,” and apparently, something worked, because he’s engaged to be married, and is all up in the wedding planning, right along with his bride-to-be!
Matt, and his fiancee Becca, met online (gives me hope!), and eventually met in-person at a dog park — aww! Check out their joint blog, Love At The Dog Park, which is all about their journey to the altar. But for now, Matt has something to say…

After getting engaged, one of the first things Becca and I did was go to a used book store in the hopes of finding some advice on planning the type of wedding we wanted.
She had relatively no problem finding books with worthwhile advice targeted toward the bride.
- No matter how stressful it gets I will not have lost sight that I’m planning my. fucking. wedding. This is exciting to me.
- The wedding day is not something I need to survive. I’m looking forward to it just as much as my future wife.
- More variety for dessert. Many weddings are moving away from HUGE, multi-tiered wedding cakes. Numerous flavor combinations of smaller cakes, or cupcakes, are very popular; but I’ve even seen success with cookie platters and pies.
- Cream cheese wedding mints are a MUST. This is my wedding crack.
- No ‘Dollar Dance’. As a wedding guest I’ve typically despised this part of the reception. I’ve only participated in one once since becoming an adult and that was for one of my best friends from college.
- Limited amount of posed photos. My ideal percentage of formal posed photos is no more than 20% of the pictures taken.
- Groom POV video during the beginning of the ceremony. Because I wanted to be able to relive the moment over and over again, exactly as I saw it that very day, until the day I die.
