I just got married on 4-March and feel compelled to share some wisdom that I learned over the journey. I'm having wedding planning withdrawl. :D I don't know what to do with myself. Here are my pearls of wisdom: 1. Pick out bridesmaid dresses that they can try on and take home. Do not fall for the made-to-order bridal shop scam. 2. Spend your money on the things that matter the most to you and don't get carried away spending on things that nobody will notice and/or don't really matter (wedding favors fall into this category - nobody wants it and most forget it). 3. Always have thank you cards and stamps in stock. The only sincere thank you is one that is sent promptly. If a gift is not acknowledged in a timely manner, that's all the giver will ever remember about your wedding. You don't want to go to all this trouble to be called "tacky" behind your back. 4. Be decisive. Make decisions and move on to the next one. 5. Do not let the stress of the event and the things that go wrong ruin it. Your attitude is the only thing capable of ruining your wedding. 6. (One more) KNOW your LIMITS, when to delegate and when to simply say no. Do not let people put things on you, especially when the day gets near. Good luck!
