Everything was happening so fast, but when I saw him through my veil all my nerves calmed. He's always had that efect on me." One disagreement: "The wedding party — he had 16 groomsmen! After listening to him, I realized how important it was for him to have all his friends with him, and really, what's so bad about having a lot of great friends!?"

Maggie at Weekend Wedding Warrior made everything fow." Wish you would have: "We should have practiced the parts of the wedding ceremony a little more." Advice: "Select your must-haves, and if the fowers are important and the cake is not, focus your budget that way. Also, delegate to family and friends wherever you can and stay positive. Remember this is supposed to be fun! Also, our wedding website was great. It was powered by ewedding."
