Something will more than likely go wrong. your wedding day does not have a bubble around it and weather, people’s mistakes and what not still occur! Just smile and know that regardless of what happens, you are marrying the love of your life!

Enjoy every second of it. It’s a whirlwind experience. Also, remember to eat before the wedding. Sitting down to enjoy your well thought out meal is almost impossible! hahaha. DH was at our sweetheart table for 10 minutes until he got up to talk to someone. It was funny actually. So, eating before is major do.

@JemmyGee:  I need to bookmark this one and repeat and repeat again!  As long as at the end of the day I’ve married the best thing that’s ever happened to me, it is ALL good!

@Adams_bee: did you take any anti-anxiety meds? I have been considering this, wondering if any bees have done this and if it helped.

@FMM:  Good tip! 🙂 At the begining of planning I was so focused on having the biggest and best things, and then I just stopped and realized… These people have probably been to dozens of weddings. What do they care if my centerpieces are a half an inch off of their ideal height? Who cares if my aisle decor is a different shade of pink than the bridesmaids dresses?

When it comes down to it, people won’t remember your wedding in a couple of years, and all that will be left will be pictures and the love you have between you and your SO! So that’s all that matters. That you have a good day with friends and family, and you have your Fiance by your side. It’s basically just a huge congradulatory party for the bride and groom and their love. THATS what’s beautiful, not the decor, the flowers, the reception set up, ect. 🙂

We had to cancel our wedding and go to the courthouse days before it would have been because our daughter had to have urgent surgery.

My advice is: This is a wedding.  It is one day.  Your marriage will hopefully last a lifetime.  Don’t get too consumed by the “perfect day”.  Realize that sometimes things happen and you may not get your dream day, but you do still get your dream guy in the end.

@FMM:  LOL People have been so surprised when I say this (I’m pretty type A), but it’s true. I was trying to put our invitations together and had planned on tying them with twine. The first one was a pain in the ass and I was like, “No way am I doing this for 60 invitations. NO ONE CARES.”

@Birdi:  Same. Fiance and I are hypoglycemic, so eating is an integral part of the day. We haven’t figured out breakfast yet (might get up early and go somewhere by ourselves, or maybe meet the bridal party at a restaurant), but the girls and I will be eating lunch at the salon and then dinner pretty quickly into the reception. We will not be getting up to go talk to people until we are done eating.

relax and enjoy the day! it goes by much quicker than you expect it to. don’t worry about details. nobody will remember much from your wedding so it’s just not worth the stress. don’t even remember some of the details from my own wedding so i’m pretty sure our guests don’t remember.

also see if the caterer will pack some food for you for later. i was determined we were going to eat at the reception (everyone kept telling me we wouldn’t and i told them no way) and by the time dinner started, i couldn’t eat. partly because i was so worked up with excitement and partly because i was dying of heat in my dress!

Plan how you and DH want to plan, be considerate of your guests, and everything will fall into place.  Stop stressing about if people will like ‘x’ (your dress, your food, your entertainment, etc.) because if you and DH like it, chances are, others will to!  When people give you well-meaning advice (especially when it’s contrary to your plans) just smile, say thank you, and change the subject!  Everyone will be an ‘expert’ at opinions on your wedding, but – at the end of the day – it’s YOUR wedding and you will be the one thinking about your decisions far after the wedding (and it will ONLY be you thinking about it!).  So plan accordingly!
