You either love them or hate them. Sandy got married on Labor Day weekend, and yet, she's not a fan. Lots of your guests have annual family traditions and commitments during holidays so you have to poll the group if you don't want to risk not having some of your friends attend your holiday wedding weekend.

Traditionally, if you have a sister, you’re supposed to ask her to be your Maid of Honor. But that’s changed, and many brides are as close to, or closer to, their bffs as their own siblings. But before you skip your sister, be sure to talk to her about her feelings on the matter so you don’t do something hurtful that won’t be forgotten for a really long time, if ever.

There's nothing pleasant about cancelling a wedding, but dealing with returning all the gifts may be one of the most embarrassing, and labor-intensive, tasks you'll face. Especially if your date was near and you've gotten lots of things. Sandy says you must try to return everything because those were gifts to celebrate an event that isn't going to happen.

Unforeseen circumstances can occur that force a couple to move their wedding date. If you’re organized in your approach to the vendors, you’ll lose a lot less money in the process. Rescheduling your wedding in the same place is always less expensive than starting from scratch the second time. Sandy says to have two new wedding dates in mind before you contact your vendors so you have options.

Make sure you discuss all the difficult topics – finances, baggage, sex – with your fiancé before you actually get married. Sandy’s guest, Elizabeth Carroll, the star of WEtv’s “Marriage Boot Camp,” says a strong marriage foundation comes from having the tough conversations before you actually get married. Premarital counseling can be a great way to dig into the difficult subjects that are hard to approach on your own. Elizabeth says she doesn’t want other couples to go through what she did with her own failed marriage.

It’s tacky to post ANYTHING negative about your relationship on social media, but it’s even worst to put your own cancelled wedding on blast. Sandy says to take the high road – don’t post anything about the demise of your engagement. The people who need to know should find out directly from you, and the rest of your “friends” don’t need the nitty-gritty details.
