1. The challenging seating arrangements
The seating arrangements are a challenge, but try to think about that those sitting together should have something in common. Mix new and familiar faces so everybody is feeling comfortable and gets a chance to meet new people. And avoid being the obvious matchmaker – the prospect couple will for sure catch each other’s eyes under the light of the disco ball.

2. You should feel comfortable
You generally always put your hair up. It just suits your face better, and to be honest there is long between the quality of your flowing hair and Jennifer Aniston’s. But then again, who says that you should have your hair down on your wedding day. Nor do you need the sharp red lipstick if it does not suit you.

3. Remember to eat (before you drink)
A classic, if any. The dress was a last-minute hazzle, the driver was late and all of a sudden you are sipping champagne at the reception on an empty stomach. This may quickly turn your big day, into one you would rather forget. Keep small snack bags with carrots and cucumber slices handy. And drink water. Lots of water!
4. Avoid the awkward bachelorette party vibe
Of course you should pretend that you had absolutely no idea that your girlfriends were planning to kidnap you for your bachelorette party. And no, you are not the one who should be dictating the events of the day. But you can give your fiancé a list of persons who should be invited when they call and ask.
5. Delegate, delegate, delegate.
No, you did not dream of your wedding since you were five. You were at least seven when you started planning table setting, invitations, cake and flowers. Still, it is impossible to keep a tight reign on everything when it comes to a big party such as a wedding. Delegate, delegate, delegate!
