Take the time to interview all of your vendors and ask for references or to see prior work. Ask if they have a back up plan in the case of a unlikely event occurs. When hiring a photographer be sure to ask to see a complete album of a wedding in the same style of book you are ordering.

Don’t leave your other half out of the wedding planning
Although, most men leave the wedding planning to the bride to be, you should sit sown with him to find out what if anything he wants to happen or not happen during the ceremonies.

You do not want to have your DJ or MC call for all single men to the floor for the guitar toss and your groom does not want to participate. This will make the wedding special for both of you.
Don’t over spend – Create a budget
Spend your money wisely. Create a budget that you and your families can afford and stick with it. You can have your dream wedding on a budget if you plan well.

Not running around stressing about the decorations and if each vendor is on time. In your budget allow funds for you to invest in a wedding planner for the day of your wedding.
