I've only posted a few times, but i thought i'd pass on that we got through the wedding/honeymoon with minimal difficulty. the other half of "we" is redbaron7, who has posted here before as well.some things we learned:1) champagne is much cheaper if you can buy it yourself and get it to the caterer. we were able to get a nicer brand and a discount at the wine shop. take a bottle or two with you when you escape the reception.2) if possible, have the rehearsal two days before the wedding. on the day before, don't plan too much. we wound up just hanging around dallas w/the groom's friends, and had an informal get-together at an inexpensive restaurant (each pays for own) the night before.3) if you're getting married outside and it might be warm, buy some cheap but pretty paper folding fans. they made our guests happy in an ooutdoor august wedding in dallas.4) hire sheepdogs to help herd parents etc. and other stragglers to tux shops and rehearsals. we were wishing we had.5) find out if there are other weddings at the same site the day or two before. we inherited some great tents from the prev night's wedding, at a savings of $3000.6) on the honeymoon, don't let the bride convince you to rent mt bikes and bike down a 12,000 ft mountain in colorado. if you do, realize the bride (me) might go flying over the handlebars and break her arm.I can say that breaking a bone and being in a cast does make one realize how supportive one's new spouse is--mine was very helpful and understanding, from being with me in ER to helping me wrangle my hair into a ponytail since i couldn't use my rt arm!marcy(unable to hit shift key w/cast on arm, but still managing to have fond memories of every second of wedding and honeymoon)
