Here are my key take-a-ways for future brides-to-be:
- Don’t tell your friends who aren’t invited to your wedding to help out and then ask them to scram – Not only is this considerably rude, it’s also confusing for your guests. I understand that it’s not economically feasible to invite everyone to your big day, but you should also make do’s with what you can and cannot do.
- Find an “A” who can help communicate – This shouldn’t be a shocker, but you’re going to be busy on your wedding day. That’s why it’s extremely important to find someone (sister, mother, maid-of-honor) who can help navigate your guests. Whoever this person is, she must be Type-A, and cannot be soft-spoken or shy as no one will listen.
- Wake-up! I don’t mean to be fastidious, but seriously bring your A game to your big day. If something doesn’t look right on your wedding day, perhaps it might help to wake up and address it right a way. No, you don’t need to confront anyone, just make sure you have someone available (see second point) to help voice your concerns.
