Some people know exactly what they want when they are getting married, even down to the finest detail, in fact I know people who had their wedding planned before they even met their future husband. I was not one of them, are you?

HOW HAVE THINGS CHANGED?
There was a time when it was customary to put things away in the 'bottom drawer' in preparation for the 'big day'.
These days, whether you and your partner's financial position will comfortably allow it or not, you may well choose to pay someone to plan your wedding from beginning to end. This is not something I would feel comfortable with since I am a self confessed control freak, that revels in the chaos of planning such events. If you are willing to let go, then do it!
CHOOSING SOMEONE TO PLAN YOUR WEDDING WITH YOU?
You are fortunate if you have found someone who will forego their own desires and feelings regarding the 'perfect wedding day', that is also able to consider your every wish (within reason) regarding your big day.
The person you choose does not have to be a professional, indeed it could be a trusted friend, or better still someone recommended to you by word of mouth.
If you're planning your wedding, read on for more helpful do's and don'ts.
DO'S AND DON'TS
WEDDING TRENDS: You really don't have to follow every recommended wedding trend.
THE DRESS: You do not have to 'say yes to the dress' if you are 5' 2" tall and the designer dress looks better on a woman whose height is nearer to a lofty 6 feet.
YOUR WEDDING RECEPTION does not have to be held in a very popular, though woefully small and expensive venue just to please others.
THE COLOUR OF YOUR DRESS: Please don't wear a particular colour just because it's the in thing. It may not suit your skin tone.
CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING COLOURS: Please do take into consideration any dominant decor colours at your wedding reception venue. Even if you have already decided on your wedding colour scheme before-hand, you might have to be open minded enough to reconsider if there is a danger of colours clashing terribly.
BRIDESMAID DRESSES: It really is okay for your bridesmaids to wear slightly different styles of dress. Just keep the colour the same. You're a woman, you know that the shape of your figure does not lend itself to every cut of every dress. Why should one bridesmaid look amazing and the other feel as if they look like a sack of potatoes?
MULTI TIERED CAKE: Do you really need a cake that size?
WEDDING FLOWERS: Why can't the flowers used in your church do 'double duty' at the reception as table centrepieces?
BRIDES BOUQUET: Do you want people to remember how gorgeous you looked or marvel at how you ever managed to carry such a large bouquet?
We wish you much success in your wedding planning.
