When taking dance lessons for your first dance, do not get fixated on learning a routine. It may be tempting at first, but when you will actually get out on the dance floor you will be counting steps which will in turn make you look a bit robotic. So try to learn how to lead and follow instead.

Your ceremony is a beautiful, soul-touching event, which will bond you to your partner for a lifetime. You will appreciate having some time directly after the wedding to spend with your new spouse, so schedule in a half an hour, in some secret location, to snuggle up and enjoy your moment.

Here’s a fun tip – practice your wedding kiss! You want to make it sincere and not sexy, not too short but not too long. NO TONGUE! Practice how you’ll hold your partner’s face, if you choose to, or where your hands will be otherwise. You only get one shot, so you’ll need LOTS of practice beforehand!

If you’re going to be photographing a wedding, make sure to visit the location where the wedding will be held so you know what angles will be available to you and what barriers might get in your way. If you know where everything is you’ll have a much easier time on the wedding day.

If you are the bride at the wedding, make sure that everything is how you want it. If you settle for less than what you want you will most likely not be pleased and not have the perfect day that you have dreamed about since you were a little girl.

Use more than one camera when photographing a wedding to be prepared for any shot. It’s nice to have two different settings, for example one wide angle lens and one long lens so you can get photos of varying aspects of the same shot. It also allows you continue taking photos even if one of your cameras dies.

Put a lot of thought into the seating chart that you create for your wedding. Make sure that the elderly do not have to travel a long way to get to their seat and that your family is close to you. Also, try to have the members of each family sit with each other.

If you are having a church wedding, consider holding your reception in the church basement immediately following the service. If your church doesn’t have a basement, they most likely have a hall perfect for the affair. Many churches have volunteer staff as well that will help decorate and provide food for the cost of the ingredients and materials alone.
