#12: Change things

Even the cake was in tiers is our series tips for weddings. The title comes from an overused and not so funny wedding speech joke, "It's been an emotional day...". What advice did you wish someone had told you before your wedding? We're collating all the etiquette and expertise here.

Recently a Bride (who I wont name here- so she can 'fess up to her mum herself!) wasn't quite happy with how her bouquet had turned out from the florist. There was some foliage she hadn't planned on including- so we got some scissors and chopped a few sprigs out. Didn't make a huge difference, I dont think anyone noticed... but you bet she'd have been bugged by it looking back at her photos for years to come.

In the same ilk if something isn't how you wanted it then ask to have it changed. Bare in mind though how much effort it will take to change it, and how much time is available- no bridezillaing needed!
