Thank You Cards are a must! 
2.
Figure out who is helping to pay?

  • A lot of extras (programs, napkins, favors, etc) usually end up being thrown away and people don't remember them.
  • Spend the money on better food, a nicer photographer or on your honeymoon.
8.
Remember you and your new spouse are the host and hostess.
9.
Spend time at your reception and enjoy your guests.
10.
Calling off the wedding!
