When planning your wedding, there are some important things a bride should know! Before meeting with your event coordinator, you need to know certain things. Know how many people will be attending the event. This is important when it comes to deciding what room you will be in. Also, know your colors. Your planning will go a lot easier once you have a basic idea of what you want your reception to look like. Know your vendors. Have a DJ, photographer and florist? Provide your coordinator with their numbers. This is important when it comes to the day of the event. You don’t want your DJ not showing up! Leave that up to the coordinator to make sure everyone is there and things are running smoothly. Another important thing is to make sure you have a picture of your cake or centerpieces. If you want something a certain way, you need to communicate that with the coordinator along with pictures to ensure you get the most out of your big day! Also, label your boxes. When you bring in your candles, cake cutter, centerpieces, and party favors, make sure you label your bags and boxes. That way, when you come to pick things up the next day, everything will be placed where they came from. They will be easier to track and it will be easier on the coordinator. Eliminating stress in these areas is important in the long run!

Pep up your bridal shower with these fun games.
Instead of bingo, replace the word Bingo with Bride. On each sheet for each guest, design it so the boxes are related to you and your husband. Examples can include: locations, best man, maid of honor, bridesmaids and groomsmen, wedding colors and significant dates.
Writing a story:
At the shower, have a long sheet of paper. Each guest writes a line to make a story of the bride and groom. When writing a new line in the story, only the previous line the person before you wrote should be showing.
Who Said What?
Ask the bride and groom a bunch of questions a couple of days beforehand. Type up the questions and the answers and print out sheets for all the guests. Then have them label who said what answer.
Write a story or vows for the bride and groom and leave out nouns, adjectives, verbs and verbs. Print out a copy for each guest to complete and leave it for the bride to read when she gets home!
Tired of seeing ideas for only brides? Well here’s one! Instead of giving your men wallets or money clips that collect dust along with the rest they have sitting at home, make them a fun shirt for the Bachelor party to say thank you! Men don’t care about what they get, so just make it fun! For your last night out as an unmarried man, give your groomsmen shirts with your event that are very masculine! Shirts are a great purchase because they can be used more than once and they are a wonderful memory keepsake! Every time the men put the shirt on they will remember the exciting time they had with you! Again, don’t thank them by items that sit on their dresser or never use because ultimately they are a big waste of money you don’t have to spend! So get creative, get fun, and make use of your money.
