So….. I’m getting married next year (June 12, 2010 to be exact). I’ve planned all the big stuff – venues (Basilica of St. Mary, then Interlachen Country Club), band (The R Factor), photographer (Graddy Photography), and videographer (United Video).
But being that I have a long engagement and I’m a total planner (freakishly so, at times), I’ll be hammering out every single little detail over the next few months. So what I’d like to know from all of you is:
What do you love about weddings?
My example: I love cocktail hour – especially when a ‘signature cocktail’ is involved.
What do you hate about weddings?
My example: The unity candle – just gives an excuse to make the ceremony longer and everyone has to listen to some lame N*SYNC song or, even worse, a country ballad (no offense to anyone who has done the unity candle, it’s just not my thing)
Any advice you have, do’s and dont’s, etc.
My example: be sure to have a portable steamer, don’t eat shellfish the week of the wedding, etc.
Please call upon your own wedding experience, weddings you’ve been to, weddings you’ve been in, etc.
