The bride’s mother and all bridesmaids who are helping you get ready need to be ready prior to the time it requires you to put on a gown. You should be the focus, during the last minutes before the ceremony. If they have themselves to worry about in order to get ready, they will lose the focus and not help you. Once you have decided on the date of your wedding and your wedding theme, bring all of your ideas together by deciding on invitations. Traditional wedding invitations will be in your wedding colors and will let your guests know the theme. Before you make a decision on wedding invitations, consider all of the options. If you are a guy attending a wedding, consider wearing a pair of black tennis shoes. Tennis shoes are much more comfortable than dress shoes and since your pants will likely cover the majority of your shoe, no one need even notice. Just make sure the shoes are new and clean, so that they don’t become an eye sore.
