5 Things You Shouldn’t Do Before Your Wedding


1. First of All Don’t Be A ……… well, you know (rhymes with ditch)! – I know that planning a wedding is a very stressful ordeal. There are tons of things on your to do list. You have dreamed about this day since you were a little girl. However, the quickest way to ruin your wedding day is by forgetting to treat others with respect. Don’t mistreat anyone who is volunteering to help (bridesmaids for example). These people are taking time out of their busy schedules to make your special day special. Also, be nice to the wedding planner. Yes, your wedding planner may have ideas that you disagree with and don’t want to use. But, keep in mind that this person is a professional. It is ultimately up to you what you want to do, but at least show your planner that you respect his or her ideas. Also, don’t yell at any merchants over small things. Believe it or not, merchants are your friends. They also want referral business. Most of them will do more for you if you don’t offend them.

2. Don’t Overextend Yourself! – You are only one person. Don’t be such a control freak that you forget to delicate simple tasks. For instance, stuffing wedding invitations into envelopes. You can enlist help with your wedding invitations. You can even make a small party out of it. Your closest friends really do want to help with whatever they can. Don’t hesitate to send them on errands. You will make your life a lot easier and less stressful.

3. Don’t Forget That We Are in a Recession! – Even though you may not be feeling the recession, your guests and everyone else may be. This is where you need to set priorities. For example, your wedding destination versus whom you want to attend! Hawaii may be a beautiful place for a wedding, but if you and most of your guests live in Maine you may lose a lot of guests who can’t afford to come. Keep this in mind when choosing your bridesmaids dresses. Some of your bridesmaids may need financial help with their dresses. Just be considerate when planning your wedding.

4. Don’t Skip The Traditional Wedding Dance! – I know many of you are thinking, I can’t dance or the groom can’t dance and won’t dance. Almost anyone can learn to dance one dance in a short period of times. Take dancing lessons. Plan the song and the dance you want to do and get someone to teach you. Lessons aren’t as expensive as you may think. Also, for that shy bride or groom that doesn’t want to learn in front of people, there are private lessons. If you make time to practice, you will get it down in no time at all. It will really impress your guests, especially if either you or your fiance is known for not being able to dance.

5. Don’t Do Something Cheesy! – Recently, I saw a groom on the news who pulled out his cell phone and updated his Facebook status as soon as the minister pronounced them man and wife. I don’t know about you but I though that was the tackiest thing that I have ever seen. If you are thinking about doing anything unusual, talk to a few people close to you about it first. If you do something stupid, you won’t be able to undo it later!
