@AJester2:  At the last wedding we attended I was looking at everything to see if I could get any ideas for ours.  Mainly I was interested in the flowers and decor.  Have you decided on food and a cake yet?  Maybe take a little notebook and pen with you and jot down ideas while you’re milling around.  You never know, you might get inspired! 

Oh, yeah – actually my mental “don’t do that” list was longer than my “do that” list, lol, so it’s helpful either way to be observant.

Not so much a tangible thing to think of like flowers or anything, but at the weddings I went to before mine, I started really paying attention to timelines. It’s interesting to see how long people dedicate for the ceremony, pictures, cocktail hour – when do they cut the cake? Do the toasts go before dinner or after, how was the flow of evening? Things like that. I remember one where the dinner dragged on FOREVER before they got to the fun parts and everyone was bored out of their minds, so I made sure to note that when we were planning our own timeline.

I’d pay attention to their order of events, when do they cut the cake? when are dances? when do the bride and groom make their entrance? when does the bar open/close? are you given enough time to eat? when do you sense a lull in the party?
