Top 10: #1 Expect the Unexpected
1. Expect the unexpected. No matter how thought out or carefully planned it is, every wedding or event WILL have some bumps. Not everything is in your control, and you just need to take a deep breath and accept that. The weather may not be the sunny blue skies that you prayed for, the florist might be an hour late getting your bouquet to you and hence you only get to see it for mere moments before you walk down the aisle, and maybe you'll nervously stumble through your speech in front of all your guests. Perhaps someone will leave their red Elmo tape measure on the podium throughout all of the speeches at the reception and use a hot pink feather boa ( I mean, really?) to gather the linens on your guest table without running it by you (yes, this really happened, but I was too sweet to say anything to the wedding co-ordinator). Regardless, your day will be wonderful and perfect despite it's imperfections, and you just have to embrace the moment and roll with the punches.
