    As the times change, so does the way we do weddings. Some wedding photographers are trying out drone photography and Go-Pro cameras to get unique wedding shots from all angles. Casual weddings are bowing down to the reemergence of sophisticated, white-glove affairs. Think hand-delivery of invitations and champagne towers. Wedding planners and brides are going bolder with their color palettes, choosing deep royal colors and velvety shades. And naturally, the traditional wedding dress is giving way to a fresher look. Some brides are opting for two-piece dresses, jumpers, and short dresses. Have fun with it!

    You likely want the food at your reception to be memorable and well prepared. Find out what kind of food your caterer specializes in, and ask to see menu options . Will the caterer prepare a special dish, such as a family recipe, that you provide? Can your caterer account for different guests’ dietary needs, such as vegetarian, kosher, or gluten free? Also ask whether he or she will bake the wedding cake or if you need to find a bakery.

It can never hurt to ask the catering company for references from previous clients. Caterers should offer you a food tasting prior to hiring, so be sure to ask if they don’t.

The ones who didn’t get along made it a bit challenging. There were a few times I had to instruct a mom or dad to behave or leave.

    I’ve always felt that the wedding couple is who sets the tone for the behavior. Don’t be afraid to set some rules about how the divorced parents should conduct themselves, and make sure to be gracious and recognize all the parents involved. Try to set aside any differences you have with your stepparent or step-siblings. It will make your wedding day far less stressful.
