Before getting into this wedding “stuff” — before the future groom bought me a fantabulous Audrey file folder for all our documentation — I thought this would be a piece of cake. Find a dress, reception hall, caterer, band, photographer, and voila! instant wedding.
Now, I am wishing for those days of ignorance (it really is bliss) —
Chair covers — which provider will be somewhat less expensive and have the right shade of sash?
Table decorations — flowers? candles? both? mirrors? etc.
Do we give favors? if so, what?
How do we structure the time between the ceremony and the reception?
What do we do with the spare room at the reception hall? Set it up for kids, adults?
I will never again look at a bride freaking out and think, “eh, its a piece of cake.”
