So many suggestions!! One that I probably wouldn’t have thought of is to pee before putting my dress on! I’ll have to definitely remember to do that. Also, delegate! Have one bridesmaid make sure we’re running on time, another in charge of the rings, another in charge of making sure everyone gets the right flowers, etc, etc. It’s way too much for me to do on my own!

One little lifesaver I picked up is in regards to RSVP cards. apparently it’s common for people to forget to write in their names on the blank line but they check box for either attending or declining.  In order to be able to figure out who’s card your looking at , simply write a tiny number on the back of card in corner using pencil.  The # will correspond to the persons number on your guest list (obviously be sure to # the guests or couples on your list.)

glad that I listened to this because I received 3 cards back in which the guests forgot to write in their names, it was super easy for me to figure out who they belonged to!

@EastMeetsBarn:  I didn’t learn the “hold your bouquet low” thing until well after my wedding on WB – I was pretty bummed, but eh, so is life! 😛

You know what the biggest thing was that I learned from WB?  ETSY, and how much stuff is there! 🙂

When I was in the waiting phase, the idea of painting your nails and just generally taking good care of them in case a proposal comes (which did and my nails were lovely)!

I was a total wedding newbie. I’d never heard of ring wraps or eternity bands or the word tulle (and I ended up buying a tulle dress!).

Something from the Bee I’ll be applying is splashing out on a videographer.. many Bees have said their day goes by in a blur and they wish they’d had a videographer; that’s definitely something likely to happen to me and something I’d come to regret otherwise.

@MrsYoshida:  I also learned about taking good care of your nails prior to the proposal because they’d soon be on display a lot!
