Organization is the key to a happy and blissful wedding
ceremony. Family is also very important. The more family is willing to give of
their time and create less commotion on what they think should be done, the
smoother things will be.
Here are some top suggestions to help you get through
your wedding day in one piece:
* Be sure that your dress fits and you have help getting
dressed. Also make sure that you can go to the bathroom in your gown. The rest
room has to accommodate you and your beautiful dress. Usually your mother,
sister, or maid of honor has to help you.
* Make sure your parents know what is going on. Nothing
is worse then a grooms mother running around stirring up worry.
* Make sure that you have dependable people helping you.
Usually the adults in your life are better equipped.
* Make sure the place you are getting married is
agreeable to both of you. You do not want to come to that place and your heart
is heavy because you do not want to be married here.
* Be sure you can dance in your gown and that your shoes
are comfortable. You will be on your feet and you do not want to end your
wedding because your feet are in pain.
* Make sure everyone knows directions to the reception.
This should have already been done earlier.
* For your bridal party, select dependable attendants
and give each one a copy of the tentative timeline for the day. Do not have
children under three years old to be in the wedding party. If you are unsure of
the behavior of the child have one of the attendants walk with the child.
* Get all vendor agreements in writing as a contract.
Spell out exactly what you want when you make the bookings. Do not wait until
your wedding day. Call a week ahead to confirm the agreement.
* With all of the preparations up to this day, make sure
you have focused on your mate. If you know he or she is truly the one, than
everything else really does not matter. You cannot control everything so do not
worry about what you cannot change. The weather is the only thing you can do
* Be sure that all your attendants have a ride to the
ceremony. Take into consideration the gowns and a limousine is a wonderful
consideration if you can.
Have a sense of humor because this will get you in or
out of any situation. Personally if you can avoid the alcohol it will avoid a
lot of behavior and hopefully any family or friends who do not agree. If you
are expected to have beer, wine or alcohol try to control and limit. Remember
they are drinking and driving and there is responsibility that has to come with
alcoholic beverages. You do not have to have it even though there are those who
say you have to. Do what you feel right about. This will eliminate a lot of
stress in your wedding day.
Good luck! The best laid plans will always fall apart so
just plan the best you can, go with the flow and dont let the bumpy road get to
you. Youll get through it!
