Summary

Summary

Make the most of the time between today and the big day by dividing it into manageable components. As you plan, consider things your mother probably hasn't told you, like Jack and Jill parties and registering online. Fill in checklists to help you find your wedding style, whether traditional, ethnic, special theme, your own production (or eloping). Charts and tips help you establish costs and budgeting. Then come planning the ceremony, with common-sense etiquette on whom to invite, selecting the wedding party, and resolving family tensions. Where to honeymoon? Look over the great list of suggestions together. You really can manage the announcements, engagement parties, rehearsal dinner, and the reception. Finally: Plan a peaceful, lovely wedding day, hour by hour.
