Merry Makers: Y&R – Soap Opera Roundup – News Block

The Merry Ones: Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea), Amelia Heinle (Victoria) and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe)

Long Commitment or Short Commitment?

Egan: “I had a long engagement. We got engaged in February and I wanted a summer wedding, so it took us a year and a half to plan. It allowed us to really enjoy the process and not feel rushed!”

Heinle: “Long commitment. Good things are worth the wait.”

Hendrickson: “Short. We got married six months after our engagement.”

Hire a wedding planner or do it yourself?

Egan: “Wedding planner. Tonya Szele is amazing and resides in Santa Barbara. Three of my friends have gone to her since!

Heinle: “I did it myself, but I wish I had hired a wedding planner.”

Hendrickson: “We ended up eloping and planned the wedding on our own 10 days before! We just had to find a place to say our vows and then have dinner.”

Invite everyone or keep it small?

Egan: “My wedding was not small. There were 200 people, but still he felt super intimate.

Heinle: “We kept it small and I’m very glad we did.”

Hendrickson: “We kept it small and invited 10 of our closest friends to the jailbreak and then we celebrated with our families.”

Indoor or outdoor?

Egan: “A little of both! We got married on a bluff overlooking the ocean, then the reception was in a barn that I helped decorate with my wedding planner. I’m still obsessed with that barn to this day.”

Heinle: “I did ours indoors because it was snowing, but I like the idea of ​​an outdoor wedding, weather permitting.”

Hendrickson: “Outdoor wedding. I always prefer to be outdoors, weather permitting!”

Venue or destination?

Egan: “Ours was in Santa Barbara, about a two-hour drive from Los Angeles. I liked that it was a full weekend of activities, so it didn’t end like that! I loved that we were able to spend Friday through Sunday with our closest friends and family. I highly recommend it.”

Heinle: “We did a destination wedding in Montana. It was great and very YELLOWSTONE.”

Hendrickson: “Fate! We got married on St. Barts.

The groom: tuxedo or no tuxedo?

Egan: “Tux! He looked so handsome. And he still wears that tuxedo to events now, nine years later, and I love seeing it again.”

Heinle: “Thad (Luckinbill, ex-JT) was wearing a very nice tuxedo!”

Hendrickson: “No tuxedo, he was wearing shorts and a linen shirt.”

The bride: with or without a veil?

Egan: “Veil!”

Heinle: “They convinced me in a sound of music veil and it was probably the best part of the dress.”

Hendrickson: “I did not wear a veil. In the end, a veil did not go with my outfit.”

Traditional vows or write your own?

Egan: “We were married by a Catholic priest and a rabbi, but then we wrote our own vows.”

Heinle: “We did the traditional vows.”

Hendrickson: “We wrote ours and Rob’s were so much better than mine! He made everyone cry.”

Choreograph the first dance or improvise it?

Egan: “We went to a dance class and had a choreographed dance. Our song was ‘The One’ by Elton John.”

Heinle: “We did it on the dance floor and we had a great time.”

Hendrickson: “Get happy! There was no first dance, but we danced on the tables at the end of the night.”

Buffet or sit-down dinner?

Egan: “Sit down dinner.”

Heinle: “It was a casual dinner, which gave us the opportunity to spend more time with our guests.”

Hendrickson: “We opted for a formal dinner.”

Smash the cake or eat it delicately?

Egan: “We actually had no cake! Instead we made mini cupcakes. The whole cake-cutting thing never meant much to me, so we decided against it. However, I love it when others do it! To each his own.”

Heinle: “We didn’t break cakes. In fact, we saved the cake and served it the next night and it was delicious.”

Hendrickson: “At the wedding reception with the family, we ate our cake delicately. Smashing the cake is never a good idea.”

DJ or live band?

Egan: “Live band, baby!”

Heinle: “We had a DJ and it was great.”

Hendrickson: “We didn’t have any at our wedding, but as a guest, I love a good cover band.”

The best advice for a stress-free wedding?

Egan: “Just enjoy the day, and most importantly, each other. Take a few minutes, just the two of you, to be alone on that magical day and take it all in. Oh! And hire a videographer. You will not regret.”

Heinle: “Focus on the fun and have plenty of wine and good music on hand.”

Hendrickson: “Do not think too much. Remember, it’s all about you two.”
