1. First and foremost, enjoy the season and don't sweat the small stuff!
2. To save money on some of your purchases, join a wedding swap group on Facebook, where you can purchase items for your own big day that previous brides only used once (and you can sell the stuff you don't want afterwards!).
3. With respect to photography, living in Greater Vancouver I often get the question, "What if it rains?" We always hope it won't, but sometimes it does. Don't worry, just be prepared! Here are some things you can do to help with your photos on a rainy wedding day:
-Have a backup location that has covered areas but is still outdoors
-Bring white or clear umbrellas
-Use hand-warmers (especially for non-summer weddings). The ladies can hold them in their bouquets if they don't have pockets.
-High heel protectors to keep from sinking in the grass
-Incorporate a blanket/sweater/coat into the look of some of your photos
-Allow for a little time to touch up hair/make-up afterwards
