Wedding Wednesday - 5 Keys to Wedding Day Bliss

We're back this week with some of the best wedding advice, EVER!  Okay, that was a little dramatic, but it's true.  You'll find that everyone has an opinion about what's most important during the wedding planning process, but here are my top suggestions to you.  Bridal predecessors wisely passed some down, and others were discovered through personal experience.  What's some of the best wedding advice you've received?

1.  Compromise
You must be willing to give and take - especially if you have a very involved fiancé.  There's no point in getting into a knock down fight over which passed hors d'oeuvres are to be served during cocktail hour.   During the planning of our wedding my husband didn't really concern himself with such things like readings, ceremony music, or invitation style.  As long as he got to have final say on the DJ and choose the song that played when we were announced at our reception, all was good in the wedding planning hood.

    Sidebar - We were announced to the chorus of a hardcore rap song.  Sounds odd, but it fit us  
                    perfectly.  Which brings me to my next piece of advice . . . . . . 
2.  Make it Personal
Whether it's the unique table numbers, special menu items, or a really cool guestbook, some details of your wedding should be all about you.  Not the standard and cookie cutter.

3.  Some things are best left to the pros
Don't commit to too many DIY projects.  Although you may be crafty, and making your own bouquets (gulp) is cost effective, it's probably better to pay someone to do that.  In a world with websites like Pinterest and (which we love!) one can easily be tempted to take on too many seemingly "easy projects".  Pick one or two that truly interest you, and leave the rest to the professionals.

4.  A great DJ/Band Leader is a MUST
The DJ is not there to simply play music.  He or she will also be MC-ing your reception, and must be able to read the crowd.  The last thing you want is for your guests to be bored.  The DJ is there to control the flow and keep the party going!

5.  Have Fun and Remember to Eat! 
You've worked so hard planning an amazing wedding, so be sure to sit back and truly enjoy the day.  Be a guest at your own wedding!  . . . . And I wasn't kidding about remembering to eat.
