10 DO consider decorating chairs in a new way such as black, silver, white or traditional gold. Transform an ordinary room or site into a ballroom. Chair covers completely change the look of your reception.

11 DON’T forget to discuss black and white and sepia tone images with your photographer. This classic style is dramatic and remains popular.

12 DO remember that the hour of the ceremony is an indicator of the formality of the reception.

13 DO consider having your entire wedding at a full-service hotel. The convenience of having the ceremony, reception and guest lodging in one place is incomparable, especially for a complicated event.

14 To get your skin in shape for your wedding day, DON’T forget to start six months prior to your wedding and practice make-up techniques.

15 When renting a stretch limo, DO remember that it can usually seat up to 10 people, but fewer when the bride’s gown and train and the bridesmaid’s dresses are factored in to the equation.

16 DON’T forget that the best way to let people know where you are registered is to have family and friends spread the word. Although it’s impolite to mention the registry on wedding invitations, a hostess may do so on shower invitations.

17 DO remember to return rental items on time and undamaged.

18 DO select the ceremony and reception locations nine to 12 months before your wedding. If you’re getting married in popular months like May or June, select these locations as soon as possible.

19 DO make finding the right caterer and baker a priority. Great food is critical to the wedding celebration. Interviews and tastings are a must.

20 DON’T waste time getting to your reception. Have photos of the wedding party taken before the ceremony.

21 DO reserve your photographer nine to 12 months before your wedding. Decide which shots you definitely want and which ones you can live without.

22 DON’T forget to send an invitation to your officiant and to all of your wedding party.

23 DO pick up your invitation envelopes as soon as possible so that you can begin addressing them.

24 DO consider having two bouquets, one to keep and one to throw.

25 DO check with your church or temple about their policies, especially regarding alcohol.
