Make sure you have plenty of time to order a dress. Since wedding dresses typically take 6-8 months to come in after ordering, dress shopping should be one of the first to-dos on your list. Don't forget to also take about 2-3 months of alterations into consideration. Purchasing a sample dress off the rack is an option at some stores, but this will limit your selection.

Newlyweds, Jessica and Kevin Hester, exchanged their vows at the historic SouthWood House in Tallahassee on a beautiful June afternoon. Jessica and her bridesmaids finished getting ready upstairs at the SouthWood House, while Kevin and his groomsmen got ready in the Magnolia Cottage behind the main house. The ceremony took place outside, under majestic oaks. Later, everyone enjoyed signature cocktails and delicious food at the reception in front of the house. The band had guests dancing for hours! At the end of the night, guests saw out the new Mr. and Mrs. Hester by throwing rose petals. Take a look at this gorgeous Tallahassee wedding!

Food is an essential part of a wedding so one must choose a caterer wisely. There are many important factors to keep in mind while choosing a caterer. You may want to start by asking friends and associates for the names of those they would recommend.

What I love about weddings is that they're constantly evolving. We went from the big poofy sleeves and massive hair of the 80s, and somehow developed into a sophisticated style where really anything goes. Weddings used to be full of traditional rules that had to be abided by, and now it's up to the couple on how they want to portray their new love.
