Practical Wedding Tips

Practical tips that will help you enjoy your day...

*If you are getting married at a private residence,
notify neighbors you are having a wedding. Even send little gifts or invite
them to stop by for a drink. If one of your neighbors enjoys complaining, consider sending him to a local hotel for the evening.There's nothing worse than having the police
show up to shut down your party.

*Make sure you have sufficient power. Surprisingly coffee makers use a lot of
power. You don't want the lights and music to suddenly go off.

When in doubt lease a generator.

*Ask your coordinator to set at least two extra place settings.
If you made a mistake on your guest seating you'll be covered. You don't want guests standing by the table waiting for their chairs and place settings to be brought out.

*Make sure to bring a second pair of shoes, a sewing kit, plenty of safety pins, clear
nail polish, deodorant, aspirin and breath mints.

*Tell your band or d.j. if you don't want them to take requests. Also let
them know if it's not okay to give the mike to guests for unplanned
speeches. It's shocking what some people say after too many drinks.

*Always have a back up tent or a room on hold for an outdoor wedding in case
it rains.

*Don't gain or lose too much weight before your wedding and don't try to get
a sun tan or schedule a facial the day before..

*Be sure to schedule a trial hair and make up appointment at least a couple
months before the big day. This will allow time for any changes and if you
are not happy with the stylist, time to find a new one.

*Notify the catering manager if you are aware of any particular food
allergies guests may have.

*Make sure your wedding cake is not placed in a sunny spot or even in a
window where it can potentially melt.

*For outdoor celebrations you can never have too many heaters. Make sure your
rental company wraps them so you don't see unattractive metal posts.

*Don't drink too much the night before your wedding.
