Cupid’s Advice:

Duff and Comrie have been taking dancing lessons to get ready for their nuptials, but there are a few key steps that many couples might overlook during the hustle and the bustle before the big event.

1. Beautify: This should ideally take place a week or so before the wedding.  Haircuts and final teeth whitening appointments should happen while there is still time to correct any mistakes.

2. Game plan: There are certain aspects that even the best wedding planner might not know to prepare for.  Does the best man have a tendency to make raunchy comments when he’s drunk?  Have an aunt who’s a bit of a cougar with her eye on one of the groomsmen?  Prepare for these situations ahead of time.

3. Happy honeymoon: The last thing you’re thinking about as your wedding approaches is the idea of the aftermath, but it’s a key ingredient, too.  Make sure you have all the plans set for getting from wedding mindset to honeymoon mode without a hitch.
