AUDIO: Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott explains what kind of advice she received for her wedding day.

 Lady A (wedding advice) OC: …of your life. :25

“If I ask(ed) advice to like newlyweds, most of them have literally said, ‘At a point during the reception, sneak away, the two of you sneak away and hide behind a wall and look through a window and just observe what’s going on and just see everyone enjoying it and having a great time. It’s like to have that visual, to have that mental picture for the rest of your life.’”

Lady A (marriage advice) OC: (HILLARY) …Oh, boy! :26

CHARLES: “My only advice, and I’ve told her and told them, I think the first year was getting to know, it was definitely a learning experience and learning [singing] getting to know you. It was just learning how to compromise, and I feel like after that, it really got just easy. And so, just be patient and love each other [sings “as hard as you can love…’].” HILLARY: “[laughs] Oh, boy!”
