It's going to be a small wedding with about 40 or 50 people and we're on a limited budget. My mother is going to pay for the dress though (yay!). We have possible family issues--domineering mother in law, small = not a lot of extended family is being invited, I have a dad I'm not terribly close to and a step-dad I adore (who walks me?! eek!). What did your Maid of Honor do that really helped? Was there anything that surprised you about planning? Are there certain things I should be aware of early on? What things did you find were must haves and what kind of expectations did you have to let go of? Guys: how involved did you want to be in the planning, what kinds of things did you like to take care of? Thanks for your words of wisdom. They will be much appreciated.
Curious George - I'm getting married almost exactly a year from now and it occurred to me that I need to start thinking and arranging for things. Anyone with experience planning a wedding have advice? I have questions for guys and gals.
