Helpful Tips for Wedding planning.

Helpful tip #1: Start with your guest list and your budget. Large weddings are a lot of work and a lot of money. A wedding at the L.C. Is a fraction of the price of a wedding back east or in California, but you can still figure on $100 per guest for a large wedding. So choose your guests wisely. Don't invite people just because you know them, invite them because they matter to you.

Helpful tip #2: Always put the Bride in charge of the music, whether picking the band, giving the D.J. a playlist or just making her own playlist. It's her day, no one can argue with her choices, and she will know the guests and their tastes best.

Helpful tip #3: Put the Groom in charge of the booze. His friends will drink the most, but remind him to remember the ladies and the older guests.

Helpful tip #4: Choose your wedding party wisely. You are going to need a lot of help with this wedding, especially if it is big. You dearest friends may live far away. They may be able to attend the wedding, but can they help?

Helpful tip #5 Our wedding chapel is all set up, and designed for quick and easy weddings without a lot of fuss, but still giving you a quality and memorable experience in an authentic southwest setting. If you want a bigger wedding, make sure to have a wedding planner. Big weddings are a lot of pressure, with a lot of expectations. It's an amateur event, with professional expectations, so hire a professional. Ward Rudick is our recommendation.

Helpful tip #6 Try to balance your guest list evenly between the number of groom's guests and bride's guests.

Helpful tip #7 Don't forget “save the date” early invitations, it will help your turnout.

Helpful tip #8 Be sure to include R.S.V.P. on your invitations, you want to know who's coming.
