Be kind to your bridesmaids. They spent a lot of money and time to fulfill their duties.
Be kind to your parents. They have been dreaming about this day since you were a little girl.
Be kind to the venue coordinator. She works almost every weekend between April and October, often going unnoticed by everyone.
Be kind to your caterer. Having the biggest workload of the day is never easy, though, I know a few who make it look that way.
Be kind to the person who does your hair. After all, he or she has a lot of power over what you look like. ;)
Be kind to your photographer. If you really understood what it takes for her to capture those "unforgettable" moments, you wouldn't complain if they slip out to take a brief break during dinner.
Be kind to your planner/coordinator. Trust that she has your best interest at heart.
Be kind to your groom. Most guys won't be as enthusiastic about dressing up and parading around in front of 100+ people. He's trying his best for you.
And most importantly, be kind to yourself. Grant yourself some grace. All of the time and effort you have put into your dream day will finally come to fruition. If things don't go exactly as planned, allow yourself to relax and enjoy. You are marrying the man of your dreams!
