  1. Instead of arranging your seating in rows, consider amphitheater style seating for your guests.  This arrangement will allow all of your guests to have a perfect view of your ceremony.
  2. Don’t feel the pressure to have the same number of bridesmaids and groomsmen.  You can have your bridal party walk solo down the aisle or have one group of 3 walk together.
  3. Our couples always ask us how much to tip vendors.  We typically say 5%-10% of their fee is kind or more if they exceeded expectations.  We also recommend a very nicely written thank you note, testimonial or review.  Your kind words really go a long way for vendors.
