1. Get yourself a fantastic maid of honor to worry about every single detail for you. (Bonus: Make sure she also has a fantastic mother)
2. Lots of sugar.
3. Have the best friends and family in the world.
4. Play silly games.
5. Have bridesmaids on either side of you while opening presents...one to catch tissue paper and one to help you remember who gave you what.
It was the most perfect day.
And I have a whole room full of more presents than I would have ever expected to prove it.
