    To Have & To HoldExquisite oral arrangements to compliment your Wedding Day

    And while were talking weddings, here are a few other tips to keep in mind:

    * Avoid giving important jobs to the parents of the bride and groom unless they really want to be involved that way. Instead, let them enjoy being with the guests.

    * If you intend to create a gift list, be sure to put it on the Internet so that it will be easily accessible to everyone.

    * Take photographs of your hair and makeup test runs so you can choose the perfect combination when youre well rested. Prepare a make-up kit for any touch-up jobs on your big day.

    * Leave a guest book at the entrance of the reception hall. Its a great souvenir to keep, along with your photo album.

    * Leave a disposable camera on every table so that guests can record magical moments during the reception.

    The top ten wedding to-dos

    He has fi nally proposed? Then your top priority is to tell everyone the good news! Once your initial excitement has calmed down a touch, though, youll have to take time to do some serious thinking. There are so many details to plan, a budget to draw up, and deadlines to be met: it seems so overwhelming. If you are fi nding it hard to get some traction and launch your wedding planning, here are ten tips to give you some direction and help you get moving.

    Establish your budget per guest. In fact, this is the perfect time to draw up your guest list.

    Order your invitations, being careful to include your names, the date, time, and place of the wedding and reception, as well as the date by which you need to

    receive replies. Being clear about this will help you save a lot of precious time and money. Be sure to include stamped, addressed envelopes if you can.

    Book the reception hall. The reception hall is often one of the biggest expenses, so be sure to reserve one as quickly as possible. If you want to keep expenses

    down, think about holding the reception at a family home or in a garden.

    Choose a caterer. Creating a good atmosphere is just as important as choosing a caterer, although you dont want to skimp on food either. To cut

    costs, consider serving fewer courses, with a focus on excellent quality instead of quantity.

    Make up or order wedding favours for your guests. These are put with their place setting or offered at the end of the reception. Let your imagination run

    wild: you could offer small homemade soaps, candles, local produce in mini format, bath pearls, or small boxes of candies. It can also be fun to have a retro favour, such as a pack of matches with the bride and grooms names embossed on the matchbook cover.

    Shop for a wedding gown. Give yourself enough time to fi nd a wedding gown that really suits your personality. It is also possible to rent a dress for the

    occasion, much as your beloved can buy or rent his tuxedo.

    Book your hair, make-up, esthetician, and manicure appointments several weeks before the wedding. If possible, plan a test run.

    Write wedding vows. Put all your heart into writing down the vows that you would like to make during the marriage ceremony. If you plan to make a speech

    at the reception, be sure to get that down in writing as well.

    Plan the reception down to the last detail: create the atmosphere you like with suitable music, entertainment, and a dcor that matches your personality.

    (Dont forget to decorate the bathrooms, a place everyone will see at some point!)

    Organize your honeymoon so that you can celebrate your new life together.
