This is all really good advice. To add to the Bridal Party advice I would say to NOT choose your bridal party immediately. Give yourself a few months of wedding planning time to see who is actually interested in supporting you and having your back. The results may surprise you. And the Day-of Coordinator is an essential role. My DOC was worth her weight in gold. Make sure someone (NOT YOU!) is in charge and knows the details of your vision. This is crucial, because they will be making on-the-spot decisions on your behalf. Things will go wrong, and a good DOC will make it smooth and beautiful nonetheless.

@lovekiss:

I haven’t gotten married yet… but my day of coordinator has been great already. If you are planning out of town (getting married in my hometown which is 1200 miles away), it will be crucial. She’s even answering non-day of questions… and I’m NOT paying the extra!!!!!
