3. When things seem to be going off course you can always look toward your photographer to get you back in the saddle, and keep things moving. He can do this like no other because he/she is essentially your shadow all of the wedding day. You will just need to make sure that you give him permission, this will also take pressure off of other vendors so that they wont feel as if they are nagging you .
4. Remember you can not account for everything may or may not happen on the wedding day. You are surrounded by your loved ones, closest friends, and a room full of professional vendors, who want to see your day be as perfect as possible.
