As lovely as the tradition is of having the Father of the Bride (and the Father of the Groom) toast at the wedding, sometimes dads say the darnedest things! Sandy says to prepare your remarks in advance, only talk for a few minutes, and remember WHY you’re toasting in the first place, so you don’t create the kind of memories nobody wants.

Garrett & David Recessional

Same-sex weddings give brides and grooms the opportunity to make up their own rules about where they want to seat their parents, and in what order. The logistics of the ceremony are the same, but your VIP guests need
to know where they're supposed to be, and when. It really doesn't matter what order they go in as long as both moms are happy. Sandy says it's time to establish a new baseline for how things are done.

Most singles will tell you they want to be able to bring a date when they’re invited to a wedding. But later, when they’re the bride and groom who are paying the wedding tab, they often feel differently. Sandy breaks down the rules on who you have to invite, and who you do not have to invite, to your wedding festivities. 

Sandy wrote about this for Brides.com. Please take a look.

Cute Ring Bearer

Sandy explains that it’s a good idea to have at least the appearance of security staff on hand at a wedding that’s likely to be a big party scene. How do the pros do it? Wedding planners take their cues about what kind of antics to expect from things the brides and grooms tell them. The bride and groom really know how out of control their group might be.

Bride with Horse

 

Sandy says that if you have to tell your dog not to bite the caterer, that pooch shouldn’t be a wedding guest. Despite the increasing popularity of involving animals in wedding ceremonies and receptions, keep in mind that animals can be unpredictable. And, not all surprises are good ones, especially on your wedding day.

Sandy explains EXACTLY how to go about cancelling a wedding, notifying the guests, and dealing with vendors and deposits if you decide not to get married after the wedding has been planned. It’s a big decision with a lot of consequences. If you decide not to say “I do,” do it properly.
