For most brides, their wedding is the most important day of their life up to that point. And for that reason, they want it to be perfect. But as most people know, this can be a difficult thing to achieve as there are always bad things waiting in the wings to come out and destroy the day. That said, if you want perfection, there are some precautions that you can take to try and help your day to go as wonderfully as you want.
Ask friends and family to help you out with a variety tasks during the day. It is best to give them a list or notes about what you want or what is expected. You do need to be careful how you handle this as you do not want to be seen as a Bridezilla and get everyone mad at you and hope that your day goes horribly wrong. Ask a few different people to overlook different aspects of things as if you ask just one person they will not be able to enjoy the wedding and visit with family and friends and may resent you. If you ask them to check the reception, tell them what is expected such as the cake set up on a table with rose petals around it or a chocolate fountain with five kinds of fruit.
Another option would be to hire a wedding planner who would take care of all these details for you and keep the day on track and organized, but due to the cost involved, this is not an option for everyone to use on their wedding day.
