Well-said, and funny. I’m going to print this off for my FH.

Cool! Thanks so much about the candy bar tip! Never thought of that! All the guys in my family WOULD take 75 bags of candy, if allowed! LOL! And I TOTALLY agree about decorating the ceremony! I’m sick of “blah” weddings.

Agreed!

The only thing we didn’t have was Church decor… BUT it was done purposefully for our very simple and historic… “white chapel”. lol

This list needs to be bookmarked for ALL soon to be brides for sure! =)

Great list! I totally agree with all of those (and am thankful I avoided most if not all hahaha)

Ooooh, the early clean up pains me. I feel like they want me to leave as a guest. I mean, dinner’s over, yes, so come and get my plate, but do not take the centerpieces and decor and pack them up so that you don’t have to wait until midnight.

Our family weddings here ALWAYS do this…it’s the first thing on my list to tell our hotel staff AND Mr.ND’s family. I know they’re trying to help, but it drives me batty!

@Pinksapphire: Agreed. I was a banquet server for years, and I HATED when other servers would try this. A wedding I was just at had family members taking decor of the church walls before everyone was even ushered out!? Awkward. Super awkward.

This reminds me of a psych study I read years ago.  If you put a mirror up along with the candy on halloween, and the sign saying “please take one,” people are more apt to take just one piece.  So maybe you don’t need an attendant, just a mirror.  🙂

Re church decor, we may need to differ on this point.  I’d prefer to spend my money elsewhere – some bows or decorations at the end of the rows plus a flower arrangement is just fine by me.  I saw a wedding on tv with candles on the floor and thought “eek!  fire hazard.”

Great stuff 🙂

I was a bit worried when I read the thing about ceremony decorations, as we’re just having pew bows (the first 3 rows will also have flowers with the bows) and big flower arrangements at the altar and outside. I’ve been having doubts about the flowers outside, as I don’t know if it’s worth all that money for something people may not notice.

But I was glad to see your follow up post about small chapels being able to get away with it! My chapel is tiny! Yay! 🙂

Also, I totally agree with your comment on programs – I’ve never personally seen the point. It takes time and money to make, and I can’t justify the cost to the environment.
