1. Have fun. If you have fun, everyone will! Don’t forget you set the tone.

2. Wear gorgeous shoes that are comfortable so you can wear them all night long.

3. Don’t forget to thank those who paid for your magical evening.

4. Try not to have a day filled with too much to do so you have time to remember every detail and be calm.

5. Remember the wedding ceremony is the most important and the reason for the day… be extra kind to the groom — he is nervous too!

We had a few more questions for Tara…

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
The dancing!

If you could change one thing about your wedding, what would it be?
Only one thing? I would change lots! But number one, would be when the minister said “you may kiss the bride.” I turned for my husband to kiss my check like we had rehearsed. Not kidding, it was so embarrassing!

Thank you, Tara, for sharing your tips with our readers!
