Don't leave Mom out
By Isabel Rubinas
During the father-daughter dance, I saw my mom standing off to the side. I grabbed her and my brothers and we had a "family" dance instead. It was so sweet. My husband's family thought it was such a great idea, they did it too.

I had the bridesmaids pick out the dress they were going to wear. I chose the color (chocolate brown) and I let them choose the style. I really liked the dress they chose, it flattered everyone.
I also let them choose their own shoes, jewelry and hair style. I wanted their personalities to come out, so all I asked was for the dress to be the same, everything else, they were on their own. It made for no complaints!
Take Advantage of Virtual Tours
By Courtney Smith
With hundreds of ceremony and reception locations in San Diego alone, it's impossible to see all of them in a reasonable amount of time. With a little help from technology, many locations now offer Online Virtual Tours so that brides can preview the style and size of a location without actually being there. Make sure to take advantage of this technology as you're planning your wedding.
Get the right shoes
By Lisa Tesitor
I actually bought some slippers that said bride and groom on them for the reception but thought they were silly. But, an hour into the reception, after walking around and saying hello, my feet were killing me.
I realized my dress would have hidden the slippers and I would have spent more time with friends and family if I had more comfortable shoes.
