Listen Up, Brides: 8 things we learned from our Twitter Party with Jessi Cruickshank

It was the culmination of a love story that began nine years ago when Canadian bride Jessi Cruickshank wed her longtime boyfriend, Evan Gatica, in a picture-perfect ceremony surrounded by friends and family.

Covered exclusively in Hello! Canada, the Canada's Smartest Person host said of her special day: “We’re both funny and we wanted our wedding to reflect that and be a fun celebration. At the reception, we ran out while a marching band played Beyoncé’s ‘Crazy in Love!’”

After returning from her honeymoon in Hawaii this week, the newlywed etalk correspondent took to Twitter to field questions about her nuptials and what it’s like being an old married lady.

Here, in true After Show fashion, we round up some of the highlights from Jessi’s Twitter party – as well as your tips for soon-to-be brides!
