First, I would like to acknowledge that today is Memorial Day and I gratefully appreciate the men and women who have died so that our country can be free. I also want to recognize those men and women who are currently serving in our military. A BIG thank you to all!
The following is a list that I have compiled of tips that you will want to remember as you plan your special wedding day:
1. Inform Guests - When including a traditional custom in your wedding (such as "jumping the broom") give your guests an explanation of the significance of the custom so that they too can appreciate its meaning. By the way, "jumping the broom" is an African tradition that was later used by slaves in the United States to symbolize marriage.
2. Prepare for Traffic - If you are getting married in a big city like Los Angeles or Chicago, provide your guests (especially the out of town guests) with maps on how to get to your wedding. Also, include any traffic trouble spots.
3. Allow Guests to Meet - If your family is from Texas and his family is from Missouri then chances are EXTREMELY high that the two families do not know each other. Consider hosting an event before your wedding for guests to get acquainted with on another. For instance, consider having the men go play golf while the ladies catch a movie. Do something so that everyone has a chance to meet.
I hope these tips prove to be valuable for you as you prepare for your wedding.
