My wedding is now over and it went better than I could have ever dreamed. Thanks to this forum for the great advice--i followed most of it but went my own way in a few aspects.
It's so true when they say the day will be a whirlwind and it'll be over before you know it. It's like everything happened in fast forward.
Couple small things I would have changed in retrospect:
- I had too much wedding cake. I didn't realize some people would leave before it was served (or maybe I served it too late...but it seemed like people were still full from dinner)
- I would have skipped the personalized favors if I did it over again. They weren't tacky or anything though.
Neither of these detracted from my wedding (though I'm a little sad that not everyone ate cake)...more just that I wasted a little bit of money.
