Tips by Lisa Nuttall and photography by Paige Burghardt

Baby wipes remove makeup and other smears from wedding dresses without staining.

A binder is a great way to stay organized. Make dividers with headings like: church, reception, flower ideas, cakes. When you are going through magazines, cut out some ideas that you like. Showing vendors your ideas and what you like will help them immensely.

Always have a bridesmaid learn to bustle your dress a few days before your wedding. That way on wedding day it will be quick.

Wear your shoes a couple of days before the wedding. Stretch them out by wearing a pair of tube socks with them.

Always have an emergency kit on hand. You never know what will happen on the day of your wedding.

A week before your wedding, pamper yourself at the spa. After all the stress and planning, a massage is a perfect way to relax.

Cut out all salt and salt products a week before the wedding. This will keep water retention down.

Use flowers that are in season during your wedding. It will save you money.

Don't try and do the whole wedding by yourself. Delegate tasks to bridesmaids or family members who are willing to help you out.

Wear a button-down shirt while getting your hair and makeup done. That way, when it is time to get your wedding dress on, the button-down shirt won't have to go over your head and possibly ruin your hair and makeup.
