no matter the venue, guest list, dress style, etc., put as much or more loving detail into your relationship and marriage as you do/did your wedding day! The tiny details of a party will fade over time, but each and every day with your partner is a building block to the next, and with the goal being “forever,” no amount of effort in our thinking, feelings, and actions, is too small. Keep the focus on the marriage, not the one day event 😉 

A reminder I have to give myself daily, lately, as I find myself drowning and struggling with the overwhelming task of planning a wedding party just a month away.

This list is much better than the previous post.

 

I agree with all of these.  Also, I would like to add to let people help and trust they will get the job done.  It’s hard giving up control of certain items (I’m a perfectionist myself), but you might be surprised as to what you will get from people if you give them some ideas of what you want and let them run with it.

This list is so much better! I think #1 is very important. No matter how beautiful the wedding is, if your guests are uncomfortable they will only remember how they felt. They won’t remember all the beautiful details you spent hours on if they’re starving or freezing, etc.

One more:

Banish the phrase “my wedding” from your vocabulary, and replace it with “OUR wedding.” It’s fine to talk about “my gown,” “my veil,” “my bouquet,” etc., the things that truly pertain only to you, but make a conscious practice of thinking of everything else as OURS. This, hopefully, will help remind you to keep communicating with your Fiance throughout the planning process and to share the decision-making and the responsibilities.

@Rachel631:  +1 I agree with this. A perfect wedding is one in which my Fiance is at the altar and I haven’t been stood up or nothing catastrophic has happened.
