Wedding Advice from The Cotillion:
Make your wedding about YOU- find a way to include your hobbies, dog-children, and special family members on your big day. There can be no wedding like YOUR wedding.
Summer is upon us and so is the heat and humidity. The excitement of the day can take over quickly, and it is very easy to get dehydrated when you are getting photos taken, visiting with family and friends, and oh yeah, getting married. Make a point to have water with you every part of the day: while getting ready, before the ceremony, on the trolley while taking photos, and during the reception. No one wants to be famished or possibly pass out on their wedding day.
Unless it is absolutely necessary, skip putting together an assigned seating arrangement. Some brides like the idea of the place cards and table numbers, but the weeks leading up to the wedding, they are pulling out their hair with updates and changes. Chances are, your guests are going to sit by who they wish and don’t need your assignment anyway. Make it easy on yourself, set aside reserved tables for your family and call it good.
