Before Your Wedding: 5 Things You Need To Know

Earlier this year I got married and if I know now what I knew then things would have been so much easier. We all, or most of us, suspected or outright knew that getting married was not going to be a picnic. The fairy tale begins and ends in the world of fiction, with the exception of the actual wedding day—but with all the work that goes into planning that one day, surprisingly most people don’t even get to enjoy it.
TIP #1: Get everything done, fast. Make a list, check it twice, divide up everything from taking care of the florist to the rehearsal dinner between responsible parties and set deadlines well in advance of the wedding date. There are few things worse than finding out at the last minute that no one thought it was their job to hire the limo.
TIP #2: Get everything else done, faster. Some essentials can be taken care of online, usually faster, better and cheaper. Buy your wedding favors, bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts well in advance. Depending on the size of your wedding party and reception you should be able to take care of all the bridal party and guest gifts for between $300 to $500 in most cases and get some really nice stuff. That’s less than most florists charge for just a couple of arrangements.
TIP #3: Make sure you’re ready. If you’ve gotten everything else done in advance, you finally have a chance to sit down, take a breather and think about just exactly what you’ve gotten yourself into! For some people this is part of the excitement, for others it’s called pre-wedding jitters. Don’t worry about it. If you have nothing else to think about, you’ll get it out of your system well before the day-of so you can actually enjoy the ceremony. Either that, or you can cancel everything before you lose too many deposits (always think positive!).
TIP #4: Don’t fight. Something is going to upset someone. It’s guaranteed, written somewhere in stone probably. The thing to do is be a solver. Keep a cool head and find the solution to whatever problems arise. If someone else (a parent, perhaps) is upset and no solution is in sight, remind them of all the reasons they should be excited and point out that nothing is ever perfect. That doesn’t mean it can’t still be amazing.
TIP #5: This is absolutely the most important thing to remember. If you ignore everything else you’ve read, remember this: Eat before the reception. If you’re having a cocktail hour, have the reception hall staff bring you some food before your guests arrive. Once the guests are there you won’t have a moment to yourself and no one will care how many times they interrupt you with clanging glasses or conversation because they’re just so thrilled for you.
In fact, if you can make your rounds to greet everyone personally during the cocktail hour, you will have at least a little bit of peace during the main reception and I highly recommend doing exactly that. Other, more difficult but worthwhile lifesavers to give you a little more time to enjoy your reception are putting the favors on the tables before the guests arrive in the dining room and have a “birdcage” or monetary gift box to receive envelopes so you don’t have to work through a line of people for an hour after dessert.
Nothing, and I mean nothing you can do will result in your wedding going off without a hitch (no pun intended!) but a little perserverance and an anti-procrastination mindset will get you close. That’s all I have to say for the moment so good luck and may your wedding be fabulous!

Depression About My Wedding, Any Advice?

Ok, this is probably going to sound stupid, but my fiance is paying for our entire wedding and honeymoon. I don’t have any money to pitch in for the wedding, I’m still living with my mom and I’m trying to help her out financially. With rising prices of gas and groceries, we can barely afford to live out here, mom doesn’t make much and neither do I. My fiance just got a great job and he is going to be the one paying for our wedding, he’s already told me he’s ok with it and plans to do it. But, I don’t want him to pay for everything! I don’t think it’s right, and I want to do my part to pitch in! He knows I can’t do it, and he knows I’ve worked hard to plan everything so far, so he’s leaving the planning up to me. I just want to be able to contribute something to the wedding, even if it’s small. We’ve cut down on everything: eloping now and going to cabin instead of Disney World. I’m wearing an old prom dress. Any ideas on how I can help him out? Even if I have no money?

Anybody Have Any Advice About A Honeymoon At Disney World?

My boyfriend of 3 years and I are about to become engaged, and he’s already started talking about the honeymoon. I don’ mind–I like to plan way ahead–but he’s absolutely dead set on going to Disney World for our honeymoon. I’m not so sure. He went there once when he was five years old and said he’s always wanted to go back–he’s a very good man with a child’s heart.
On the other hand, I’m not so fond about going to Disney World for a honeymoon. I’m sure it’s great (I’ve never been there before), but I would rather go somewhere less oriented for children–like an adult exclusive resort, where our interests as adults will be prioritized.
I’m not completely against going to Disney World altogether, but I think it would be a waste of the experience until we have children to share it with. Wouldn’t that be better?
If anyone’s had a wedding/honeymoon at Disney World or knows someone who did, could you tell me about it?

Advice For Disney World Wedding….?

Hi. I would like to get your opinion on something i cant decide on. We’re going to DIsney for our wedding and are staying at POP before the wedding and then switching hotels to a deluxe one for our wedding night and the rest of our trip. I am thinking maybe we should stay at the deluxe resort the night before the wedding, rather than the night of b/c i am worried about having to pack up, transport our luggage to the deluxe resort in our limo ride to the wedding, check in before the wedding, and then we’d have to call and see if our room is ready before 3pm, we’d be done w/ the wedding and reception a few hours before 3 If we did switch the dates and stay there the night before, it’d be less romantic, more $, no limo ride, worrying about transporting luggage and dress. I want to make it as stressless as possible, so which option sounds better? Is there a way to transport our luggage if we went the day before, to do it ourselves, to make sure they dont lose it? thanks!
