What the bride would have done differently:
I wish I would have remembered to apply for a wedding license. Our officiant mentioned something vaguely about getting one 6-8 months before our wedding over a brunch meeting. Leading up to the event, we didn't even realize that we needed to apply for one (I know this is obvious to some people; but not to everyone!). A good tip would be to make a list of "important list of things to do/logistic things" and hand them to a very responsible MOH or Best Man and make sure they remind you as the day approaches to make sure you dotted all your i's and crossed your t's.

I wish that we would have figured out a better way of placing our handmade hand dipped chocolate caramels (our favors made by a friend) to make sure that everyone got one. It was hot that day; so we made a last minute change to put them not at each person's place setting; but in a big basket instead inside the barn where the reception was. We think some people took 10 home; when other people got none.
