1. Your wedding day is just that.... ONE DAY. What matters most is that on your special day, you are committing to a LIFETIME together. My point with this is... don't let the stresses of a "perfect" wedding day get to you so much that it gives you stress, lack of sleep, or problems in your relationship! What matters the most is that your wedding day will be uniquely yours, it will be the day you committed to forever with each other, surrounded by the people who care most about you! Let that be your mindset as you plan and prepare for your wedding day, and don't let the little things overwhelm you! The day flies by, the marriage is forever!
2. Your bridal party might drive you crazy. Give your bridesmaids and groomsmen PLENTY of time to get alterations, and have your maid of honor be the one to stay on top of everyone for you! Also, make time for just yourself on your wedding morning. As soon as your bridal party is there, you will be in non-stop commotion, and you will want some peace and quiet!
3. Trust your gut. If any vendors, family members, friends, or anyone else gives you advice that you don't agree with, or don't want to take, then don't! Don't do something you don't want to do just because someone says it's a good idea. It's your wedding day, and whatever dreams you have or don't have, are what matter! Choose to let bad advice in one ear and out the other! In the end, do what makes you and your fiance' happy, and ignore the rest!! You will be happier in the end!
