As a wedding planner, I see many wedding mistakes that are made time and time again by guests. No one wants to be the person who sits in the wrong pew or the wrong table. From making sure you’re dressed appropriately to knowing when to call the open bar drinks quits, we want to prepare you to be the #1 guest at each and every wedding you go to, so here are 10 common rules that all wedding guests should follow.
Let me just start by saying that I am the worst at resting. No matter what I do, or how much I get done I am always thinking about the next thing that needs to be ticked off of my to-do list.

If there were ever any doubt that Hugh Grant’s charm is indestructible, his character’s best man speech in “Four Weddings and a Funeral” should serve as the final proof. There are only a few rules to follow when giving a wedding speech, like to avoid the word divorce and to withhold family secrets, and Grant breaks them all. Though he does so while wearing dopey glasses and sweetly stuttering, so we forgive him. Similarly, in the movie “Old School,” a drunk Luke Wilson gives a successful speech only because Vince Vaughn swoops in and saves him with Shakespeare. So, what can we, mere mortals of the real wedding world, take from all these outlandish, unrealistic Hollywood examples? Here are five tips from on-screen weddings to make your own speech Oscar-worthy:

Many brides, including myself when I was planning my wedding, feel overjoyed when they book with a venue that comes with an onsite coordinator. They think “oh good! Now I don’t have to worry about who will set up my tables, tell me when to walk down the aisle and talk to my vendors.” The problem is - that isn’t what the onsite coordinator’s job is.
It’s amazing to think this was only 365 days ago. While Jacob and I have been together for over four years now, I have learned far more in our first year of marriage than I did in three years of dating him. Everyone told us we would grow more than we thought we would during this first year, but as naive as we were, we didn’t think much about it until reflecting back on the year.

Here are 10 easy ways to save thousands of dollars (just going with #1 could save you upwards of $3,000) on your wedding day and still create your perfect Pinterest wedding.
