Using subtle lace and sequin accents the wedding dress evoked a regal feel for the bridal ceremony and reception.

When you think of having a wedding schedule, it seems so obvious. A schedule is not just for the vendors and wedding planners. There are some items on this handy document that will keep everyone organized and on the same page for the big day.

A schedule keeps everyone on the same page
You might need several schedules and lists. It seems overwhelming at first, but it will be helpful because everyone will feel organized and a little less stressed. When it comes to planning the wedding, coordinating with the different vendors, events surrounding the wedding, the ceremony, and reception there is a lot to organize. Things change, situations come up, and everyone must be flexible. Having a schedule that is organized is helpful if you need to make changes. Top-notch organization keeps everything flowing with ease.
Your wedding is finally here. You and your groom are done with the planning, you found the dress of your dreams, and you are getting ready to walk down the aisle.
One of the last events before the wedding is the rehearsal dinner. This event is a great time to have toasts from people who would like to share sentiment, but are not speaking at the wedding.

It can be a formal sit-down dinner or more casual event. It depends on your venue, budget, and other wedding events that you have planned.
