I have an edit: The airfare- the best ticket prices are 90 to 45 days out. The best time is around 60 days from the flight. This is per travel agents 🙂

I have a couple things swimming in my head that I have not figured out yet…  Who do I ask to set up ceremony and reception…

Is this something I should be planning on doing as the bride??

My wedding is a year out almost to the day but I can’t get this nagging thought out of my head!

All the Mrs.  WHat did you do?

Help! lol

My daughters wedding was two weeks ago so while fresh in my mind I would like to add.

1. Make a list of must have’s and could have’s and get your list of must haves done first. I have met so many brides who just keep adding and then don’t have time for everything leaving their must haves undone.

2. Be specific with your vendors, when your florist includes a clause regarding substitutions, and they will, Make them be specific about substitutions. Our florist added different colors in large quantities and they were a real hodge podge of colors. They were not even pretty 🙁

3. Don’t leave anything to be done last minute, it does not get done.

4. When people say they would like to help you, believe them and think of something they could do. For example- load presents, take home elderly family( this is a bigger problem than you think),make sure getting ready room has been emptied, make this list ahead of time and then give these people something.

4. The day of just let all the control issues you have go. What’s done is done and what’s not is not. Enjoy the day, this includes MOB’s too. ( wish someone had said this to me)

5. Congratulations to all you brides to be.
