My Fiance and I liked going to the bridal shows. They give you a chance to meet vendors and get a gist of their personalities – especially planners, photographers, and Djs who’s personalities I find most important. We also won A LOT of stuff. A lot of times they will have a $500-2,000 cash prize for a couple and only 80 or so couples are in attendance. Although we didn’t win any cash prizes, those are still some good odds – especially when the bridal shows are free!

I will not make a bridal party stand for a 45 minute ceremony that includes the bride and groom singing to each other.

I will not keep guests waiting for 2 hours at a reception (with no food served until bride and groom arrive) while doing photos.

I will not make the bridal party arrive 3 hours before the ceremony to do 10 photos and then have to wait around for the ceremony to start.

I will not ask someone to be in my bridal party because “I need another person because there is an extra groomsman”

I will not make my bridal party assemble my 10 piece invitations because I want them to be “custom.”

I will not choose a $325 dollar dress that only looks good on the skinny chick with the big boobs and looks hideous on everyone else.

I will not expect my bridal party to go to all 6 of my pre-wedding parties.

I will not insist on an expensive bachelorette party across the country if i know my bridal party is poor or have busy schedules and then guilt trip them when they say they can’t come.

I will not instruct the makeup artist to use the same makeup scheme on all of the BMs so they look like dragon ladies..

That said, I will probably not have much of a bridal party because it is too crazy.
