Important Questions from The Knot

Best advice for to-be-weds?

Try not to worry about things outside your control. While you might hope for a perfect sunny day that makes everything shine, remember it's all about celebrating life and love.

What's your all-time favorite wedding song?

I absolutely love "Harvest Moon" by Neil Young. Romantic and timeless, it's a great first dance pick.

Dream celebrity wedding guest?

Brandon Flowers, without a doubt. I've been a massive fan of The Killers since my early teens, so I'd be thrilled if he showed up to sing for me.

Best wedding after party snack?

For me, there's nothing better than salt and vinegar chips with a cup of tea.
