While it’s seriously rude for wedding guests to no show at your ceremony and reception after they’ve  RSVP’d yes, don't out-tacky your guests.  There's a new app that makes it easy to bill your no-shows for their spot at your wedding! And Sandy says it’s totally unacceptable. Just say no!

Don’t get a facial a few days before your wedding, or Sandy warns that you could be giving yourself a bunch of zits on your wedding day – yuck! Plan out your skin regimen with an esthetician months in advance so you have the clearest, glowing skin possible when you say “I do.”

You can register for pretty much anything for your wedding now, not just china and silver. Sandy explains why it’s important to choose stores that have the things you need and want, and to investigate their wedding registry return, exchange and completion policies before you start your wishful shopping.

It’s super-tacky to invite anyone to a wedding pre-party if they’re not invited to the actual wedding. Sandy says don’t make up any engagement party or bridal shower guest lists until the wedding invitation list is final because there’s not much that is ruder than asking for a gift from somebody who wasn’t important enough to you to invite to the big day.

It can be very difficult for divorced or single parents of the bride and groom at weddings, especially if the other spouse isn’t alone. Rather than leaving them on their own to muddle through, make sure you talk to one of their besties – in advance – to share your concerns and make sure they’ll be by your mom or dad’s side all night. Sandy stresses that it can’t be you doing that job on your wedding day.

Wedding Givt

Some couples avoid registering because they don’t NEED anything, or they don’t want to seem greedy. The problem is that most wedding guests are going to get you a gift, whether or not you have a registry. Sandy explains why the struggle is real, and how you’ll end up stashing an ugly vase until the aunt who gave it to you comes to visit.

Elizabeth Carroll of Marriage Boot Camp

Elizabeth Carroll tells Sandy that needing relationship counseling before you get married doesn’t mean you’re not meant for each other. It means you’re even more self-aware because you realize the benefit of building a strong base for your life together. Check out the REAL Marriage Boot Camp at ww.marriagebootcamp.com.
