Tip #4: Write down a basic outline of what you want to happen at your ceremony and reception. Are you having a unity candle or a sand ceremony? Will there be readings? A slide show? Will there be a traditional announcement of the bridal party at the reception? Are you having only a father-daughter dance, or will your new hubby dance with his mom as well? Will your great-aunt be singing at the reception?
Create a basic outline, with key words (don’t worry about sentences right now) to break down how the evening will look. This will be something your wedding coordinator will need and, if you don’t have a coordinator, your vendors will want to know from you what to expect.
