8. Don't fret over making wedding favors. How about giving your guest something that last for years and they'll always remember you? Live plants are all the big rage right now.

Guests are tickled pink when they receive a live plant as a wedding favor.

Of course there are more helpful hints but, these are the basics. Always remember to breath, smile and don't sweat the small stuff. If you have your dress, your ring, your man and your priest... . then all is good.

It's always a good idea to meet with your brides maids or family before the wedding to delegate tasks and to keep your items organized in bins or boxes... and be sure to write on the box "DO NOT TOUCH or OPEN! BRIDE ONLY" .
