Sometimes, last-minute planning can work in your favor. The closer your date, the more bargaining power you have. Since most people book their wedding venues at least six months in advance, calling for open dates two months prior to your desired time can save you up to 25 percent. And, Friday and Sunday weddings should cost about 30 percent less than Saturday weddings.
Of course, I think digital files are also really important at this point in time. They’re wonderful for sharing with friends and family all over the world instantly. I always include digital files while the album is optional, so you can use those files to make as many of your own prints as you like anyway. But I love albums. There’s nothing like seeing your beautiful photos printed out in a way that lets you actually physically hold them.
Cleaning anything. Washing your car on the weekend? Cleaning the oven? Bleaching the shower? Take off that rock. That’s especially important if your ring has a colored gemstone rather than a diamond, as the chemicals can erode the finish and polish on the gem.
