Here are a few wedding planning tips from Jennifer
When you are working on your guest list, try to think in terms of who you think will still be good friends with you in 5 or 10 years – but if there is someone you are on-the-fence about, you should probably invite them.
There is no magical percentage of guests who will decline your invitation. A wedding invitation is the most important and popular of all invitations. Everyone will do their best to attend your wedding, so consider this carefully if you have a budget or guest count constraint of any kind.
Selecting Wedding Professionals:
Be sure you feel comfortable with your professional team who will be with you on your wedding day – first and foremost, your coordinator and photographer, as these are the people who will be with you every step of the way. Look at a combination of factors for all of your professionals – their experience, their reputation, their style, and their personality. Also, for the professionals who will be on-site, ask how they dress for your wedding and be sure they will be dressed appropriately.
Selecting Your Wedding Party:
There are no rules about how many attendants should stand with you, nor do the numbers need to be the same for each side. Select the closest people to you – and, if possible, those who will make your wedding planning and wedding day experience nicer for you. This is not the time for unnecessary drama if it can be avoided.
If a “pre-nup” is necessary for your marriage, be sure to discuss it openly with all involved and very early in the planning process. If a pre-nup appears too close to the wedding date, it can ruin the wedding and destroy a relationship.
