On your wedding day…
Remember that no one cares about your wedding as much as you do!
Your wedding party members are not accessories. They are people you love and appreciate. Treat them like it!
Listen to your fiance. He’ll have a few ideas – and he’ll even surprise you with some good ones!
Elope! Unfortunately, we didn’t heed that advice.
Take 5 deep breaths before walking down the aisle.
There are only five things you need to get married: a bride, a groom, an officiant, a license, and a witness. Everything else is fluff.
He who pays, says.
It isn’t only your day – it is also your husband’s and it’s a day for celebrating with family and friends!

DON’T create a wedding for others at the expense of your wishes. Focus on the kind of celebration you want, not the one other people expect you to have.
DON’T ask your attendants to do chores or run errands that should be performed by hired help. If you need baby-sitting at your reception, find one, but not among your wedding party.
DON’T ask someone to donate an item or service that’s normally paid for. Of course, if they volunteer, consider it.
DON’T surprise guest by asking them to perform non-guest duties, like taking pictures, parking cars or playing the piano.
DON’T use preprinted cards in place of a personalized note.
DON’T plan a punch bowl reception for what rightly is considered mealtime-it’s cheap and leaves your guest hungry.
DON’T forget to search out the face of your new spouse at the reception. Share a smile and commit yourself to repeating those smiles back each day of your life together.
