  • Wedding: November 2012

well I am from Alabama but moved down to Miami about a year ago. My husband and I got married on the beach with just us two, but we are having our formal wedding/celebration of love…whatever people wanna call it on our one year anniversary back home for friends and family. Basically no different than a real wedding. I’ve had some help but pretty much doing it on my own as well. Here’s the thing, think about the weddings you’ve been to and what you liked and didn’t like. Most people are there because they love you and want to celebrate your happiness. Food, drinks and dancing are usually the most important things that people look forward to. If you can’t decorate until rigt before, and I am assuming you have someone doing this for you and not just yourself, go to the venue when you have some time, envision how you want things, take pictures and measrements if you need to. Where to put decorations, set up the cake, ec…just have a plan so that when you do get there you can put everything in it’s place instead of deciding that day. And then have a back up plan. As far as favors, personally most people don’t keep, use or remember favors. I would take that money and find someone in the area to hire as a director/coordinator, this may take a lot of stress off of you and make things go smoothly, which will make your guests happier than a favor. None of your friends are going to say, “what? no favor? this is the worst wedding ever” lol.
