Getting Ready


Pro Tip – Conduct a trial run of your complete wedding look. This includes your dress/tux, make-up, hair and most importantly your shoes. You may need to break in your shoes before your big day in order for them to be comfortable the whole day.

Guests Arrival at Ceremony


Pro Tip – Instead of having the bride’s family sitting to the left and the groom’s family sitting to the right, have guests sit on both sides. This way families get to intermingle before the I do’s and one side doesn’t dominate the other in size.

Guests Exiting Ceremony
