GET. IT. IN. WRITING.

I know this is kind of a "duh" post, but I am going though a situation in my personal life that could have been avoidedif I had just HAD IT IN WRITING. Ugh. Hindsight is so 20/20, folks. And lawyers are not cheap. Unfortuantely, I am now speaking from experience.

When it comes to your wedding, take that extra minute after the phone call you had with your florist where she just promised you the aisle petals free to drop an email saying: "Dear Ms. Florist, thank you for the phone call. Just to confirm, you are providing xxx amount of petals for our aisle treatment at no charge. Thank you!" and make sure that email is printed and in your binder and your coordinator gets a copy of it. It's amazing how many things are "forgotten" on a wedding day. Get it in writing. Get it in writing. Get it in writing!! If only I had myself to advise my husband and I five years ago we wouldn't be in the pickle we're in. DUH.
