Jackie James Wedding Tips & Tricks - Great Ideas for Wedding Planning Success
-Have the entire bridal party scuff their shoes outside on the sidewalk or concrete so no one slips in their new shoes.
-Make sure all your guest lists are in alphabetical order. It makes it much easier to address envelopes, make place cards, and keep track of all your guests.
-Use lots of candles at the reception to add romance to the evening.
-Use flowers that are in season to ease your budget.
-It is inevitable that someone in your bridal party will be running late. Schedule rehearsals, hair appointments, and photography half-an-hour early.
-Give the photographer a list of must-have photos so your albums aren’t missing a single memory.
-Don’t get cold feet on the dance floor-take some dance lessons.
-For place cards, use envelopes with table numbers inside. This way, table assignments will be easy to switch day-of.
-Please never, ever e-mail invitations, save-the-dates or thank yous. Traditional invitations and thank yous sent through mail are much more polite.

-Save the long, emotional toast for the rehearsal dinner. The wedding toast should be short and sincere.
-Make sure everyone has a drink in their hands before you begin.
-Draw everyone’s attention to the Bride and Groom, not yourself. (Although a quick introduction is okay.)
-Name the people you are toasting.
-Don’t drink too much before your toast, but be sure to take your sip after!
-Remember to speak loudly and clearly, even if you’re nervous.
-And in case it’s all forgotten:
(Bride) and (Groom) may your lives be filled with joy, good health, and a lifetime of happiness.

Something Blue

Did you know wearing something blue on your wedding is part of an old tradition dating back to the late Victorian era? Because the color blue symbolizes love, modesty, and fidelity, it's considered good luck for a bride to wear blue on her. Here are some "Something Blue" ideas that we just love...

Adorning your hair with blue hair accessories is growing in popularity among brides. Unique ideas for something blue for your hair are ribbons, flowers, and feathers. Blue ribbons can be used to tie a section of your hair and flowers blue in color can be tucked behind the ear. Using feathers is a recent trend and used in the same manner as the flower.

Blue Flowers in Bouquet
A few flowers within your bouquet is a beautiful elegant "Something Blue"; especially these blue Stephanotis. The Stephanotis is a popular wedding flower because the meaning is Happiness in marriage. How beautiful is that...not only is it something blue but has a beautiful meaning as well!

Nail polish
Few brides may consider this something blue idea but it is a budget friendly way to add blue to your wedding since nail polish is cheap. Toenails can be painted with blue nail polish or nails can be decorated with a blue design.

Blue Shoes
I love the blue shoes!!! It is a fun and flirty something blue.

Blue Rhinestones
Another very cute idea is to stick blue rhinestone initials or "I Do" onto the bottom of your shoes.

Whatever you decide your "Something Blue" will be, make if fun and personal!
