general wedding day tips

Here's a grab bag of ideas & tips to make the most of your wedding day:

1) Once you put on the dress/tux, RELAX! The planning is over and this is the signal for you to start experiencing the day instead of organizing it.

2) First thing in the morning, hand your cell phone to your trusted right-hand-man/woman (same reason as above).

3) Be together! Take five minutes from the party to steal away and have a romantic moment, just the two of you. See if you can find a spot where you can see the party and all the people there celebrating the two of you. Be proud of the party you've worked so hard to throw. And then go back and join it!

4) Unless it's really not your thing, do take time away from visiting with guests to get onto the dance floor...(grooms, this means you too!) Guests love to see you both having a great time, and they'll join you on the floor.

5) I was reminded of this one this weekend: no red wine! (That goes for both of you). Just witnessed a mishap yesterday...someone jostled the groom's hand and the merlot went flying (right onto his new wife's dress, of course). Nothing a little club soda couldn't fix, but it's a lot easier to spot-clean white wine stains...

I'll be adding more to this post as I think of things, so check back!
