#1 – Do take time to court each other during all the hustle and bustle of planning.  Remember, the wedding will come and go.  At the end of that wonderful day, all that will be left is you and him and your relationship.  May as well enjoy each other along the path getting there!  A special box of his favorite cookies, a gallon of ice cream and two spoons, a drive up the canyon – whatever it is, just do it!

#2 – Do Prioritize the elements of your ideal wedding – Make your wedding and reception what you’ve dreamed, but prioritize those dreams. Be prepared to compromise a little for your own sanity, your fiancé’s sanity, and a tad for your family’s sanity.  If it helps, write your list on paper and figure out the most crucial.  Do communicate what is most important to you.  Really, the most important!  Now take each item one by one and write down a plan of how and who can help make it happen.  Include help from your family and bridesmaids and even your groom and the groomsmen should be involved.  It is an honor for them to be in their position and they are with that title to help you make your day just as you wish.  Remember your priorities?  I imagine having your fiancé at the wedding ceremony venue would be the number one priority, the non-compromising item.  The entire world could fall apart and it wouldn’t matter.  It’s all about you and him.  Everything else on your list is to some extent negotiable!  Be happy!

#3 – Do accept help from others.  As mentioned above with your prioritizing, you have bridesmaids and he has groomsmen for a reason.  Let them help you in whatever capacity they are able but be reasonable with your expectations.  You’ll want to be respectful of their time, but by all means, do let them play their role.  They will be coming to the reception centers too, so let them help make and deliver decorations, party favors, or whatever you need so that you don’t have one more little thing to think about.  You want to think about just you on your beautiful day!

#4 – Do consider the time your guests are taking out of their day to celebrate with you.  The maximum time between your ceremony and reception should be two hours which would include travel time if ceremony and reception are in two different Utah wedding venues.

#5 – Do K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple Stupid (or Silly, if Stupid isn’t used in your household!)  Believe it or not, my mother taught me this one!  This ties into the prioritizing a bit, but I want to add that you don’t have to be a D.I.Y. bride on everything.  Sometimes doing everything yourself can be more headache and actually more costly than if you find something similar and just make the purchase.  Remember, you want to enjoy the path along the way.  Smell the roses to that final aisle where your new husband takes your hand and you do kiss the first time as man and wife!
