An excellent wedding rule:
Do have fun. It might be more work when you DIY or have to really search and barter, but the fact is it’s not just one day! It can be a whole little journey where you connect with your family and friends and rediscover just how exciting it can be to say “I Love You!”
Do you know that in Judaism, your wedding starts the moment that you get engaged, and only ends a year after your wedding? I love this, because for me the process has been so enlightening, and the journey is perhaps as important as the destination.
