I found a great manifesto on Pinterest to live by as I'm planning my wedding and I thought I'd share it with all of you. It's all about enjoying the process, not winning a competition or showing off!
Nothing is worse than a reception with a terrible music selection and/or performers. It's a huge waste of money, not to mention the fact that it's completely awkward when three people are dancing to the "Cha-Cha Slide" and everyone is sitting down staring at each other.

This should have been one of the first posts published as it's one of the first things you do once you're engaged. I'm sorry, I'm only human! The guest list will help you browse through venues much faster. If you have a number, you can skip places that won't house that number. Huge help!
You, your fiance, his parents and your parents should each make lists of who to invite. Sounds crazy right? "I don't want my parents to dictate who comes and who can't!" Hear me out.
