Your Top Wedding-Planning Priority!

Your top focus when planning a wedding is your ceremony. Don't forget that the wedding ceremony is the sacred joining of a man and a woman for life. Give it the time and attention it deserves.

It's great to think of a wedding as a celebration--but that comes afterward!

The ceremony should be meaningful and unforgettable. It should not be longer than War and Peace, or over in a New-York minute. It should incorporate as much of your personalities and cultures as possible, while staying within the guidelines of your religion, for example.

Your Second Wedding Priority!

The second, top wedding priority is your reception. It's important that you provide your guests with all the hospitality that you can, the same as when you invite them to your home for dinner, for example.

Make sure there's plenty to eat and drink, and don't have a cash bar. (How would you like to be charged for drinks when invited to a friend's or relative's home for dinner? A wedding is no different.)

The bride and groom are the hosts of their first party as man and wife, their wedding reception. And as gracious hosts and hostesses, they need to cater to the needs of their guests before their own to make their wedding celebration as successful as it can be!

Entertainment will make or break the wedding reception. For that reason, it's your third priority.

Your Third Wedding Priority!

Nothing makes a party jump like entertainment! If wedding guests are having fun and partying, they won't want to leave, but feature the wrong type of entertainment (excessively loud, for example), and guests will be heading for the exits, the last thing you want on your wedding day!

Wedding entertainment in the form of Disc Jockeys is more than affordable, so there's no excuse not to have entertainment at your wedding. Just remember that the music, in order to be successful, must relate to all people of all ages, the ones who are attending your wedding!

Photos and video are your memories! Need I say more?

Your Fourth Top Wedding Priority!

Your fourth wedding priority comes in the form of your memories! In other words, your wedding photography/videography.

Remember when the wedding is over, and the cake is in crumbs, and the guests are gone, the only thing that remains, forever, are your wedding photos and video. Give them the time and attention they deserve.

For those of you thinking of foregoing video, let me ask you this question: If you could look at your grandmother's wedding photos or video, which would you prefer? I think that question puts things in perspective.

The Top Four Wedding Priorities: In Summary!

These top-four wedding priorities: ceremony (place); reception (site); entertainment; photos and video are your top-four wedding priorities because of availability and must be reserved ASAP, no matter the bride's time-frame.

If you're getting married, don't wait, or you may be stuck with vendors/venues that you had no intention of hiring for your wedding because of availability.
