These 10 hints will help make the planning of your wedding and the big day that much bettter.

1.
Thank You Cards are a must! 
2.
Figure out who is going to help pay?
3.
Don't spend beyond your  means.
4.
Invitations, get them out and early.
5.
Bridal Shower Guest Lists, can't invite just anyone.
6.
Consult with someone who knows about weddings.
  • The worst thing a couple can do is try to plan the whole thing themselves without any advice or help.
  • Wedding planners, although seem costly, really help save you money and stress.
  • These professionals know others in the business and can you usually get you a better deal.
  • They also know who is worth talking to and who is not worth your time.
  • If you don't want to hire a Wedding Planner, then talk to other who have recently been married, or the professionals you have already hired.  Most have a favorite to recommend.
7.
Personalize your wedding and reception, but do not make it tacky.
8.
Remember you and your new spouse are the host and hostess.
9.
Spend time at your reception and enjoy your guests.

Calling off the wedding!
