Quick Fixes for your wedding:

A guest brings a surprise date. Your first impulse may be to throw a fit
but opt for this gracious, low-drama response instead. Ask the catering manager to squeeze uninvited 'plus one" in at your guests table. If that table is too full, move them both to an emptier table. Though frustrating, such drop ins are common and an experienced caterer should have enough food, flexibility and know how to handle them.

The reception is over but nobody's leaving the dance floor. There are two fail safe ways to communicate to your guests that the party is over....Stop the music and stop the booze. If that doesn't work, and you've still got guests who are taking their time chatting and nursing their drinks, ask a groomsman to lead the stragglers to a new venue for an after party party.

Your mind goes blank during the vows. Every couple should give the effiicient a copy of their vows before the ceremony, just in case. Otherwise just improvise from your heart. Talk about what the person means to you or when you met or realized he was the one.

Your ceremony garden is looking sparse: Rent trees or purchase potted plants from a nursery,

Butter up your bridesmaids and they'll go to the ends of the earth for you. Treat them like you're auditioning them for mean Girls 2 and you'll live to regret it.

Brides I asked my bridesmaid to wrap the presents for the maids at the last minute and really got a payback, the gal I asked picked the best pair for herself and the maid of honor was really bumed out.
Brides, consider yourself warned. Be good to your bridesmaids.

Wedding Budget

Typically the following should be observed when planning your wedding.
Reception 50%, Music 10%, Flowers 10%, Wedding Attire 10%, Photography 10%, Stationary 10%, Additional Expenses 6%. Of course, like any project the additional expenses when planning a wedding budget can go over considerably.

Just try and make a budget and stay as close it to it as possible. I know you start to look at flowers and gowns and reception locations and you start to dream grander dreams but you must stop yourself and remember that this is for one day and you can make your wedding look like a million but not spending a million. The most important thing to do is to have fun in the planning and a great time on your wedding day.

Wedding Entertainment

This subject is one that is so vast it would take days to tell you the possibilities. The basis ones such as the D.J. and or a small or large band are typical. Ever think of the UCLA marching bank or the Bagpipers for a Scottish wedding. Some of these ideas are very pricey but maybe you're a'er who has lots of do-re-mi. The stripper is always fun for the bachelor party and of course that works both ways, depends on whether you're the bride or the groom. You might want to have a wedding singer or you yourself might want to sing "your" song to your bride. That one is always a realy tear jerker. It is always fun to take dancing classes before the big event so that your first dance can be a tango or a salsa. In any event, you will thrill your guests with your new found talents. At the actual wedding a harpist is very romantic as well as a solo guitarist.....get creative and do what works for your personalities.

Mexico Honeymoon

What could be more romantic than the Carribean for your honeymoon. The air is warm, the water is like a bath tub and the prices are great at this difficult time of recession.
