If you’re like most engaged couples, you’ve probably experienced some etiquette issues during your wedding planning process. There are lots of people involved with putting together a wedding (of course, yourselves, but also family, wedding party members, guests, etc.) and a lot of emotions, too, which can be a recipe for drama. Fortunately, WeddingWire is here to help! In the “Dear WeddingWire” feature in our new WinterBook, we asked wedding planners and experts from around the country to answer some of the most-asked wedding etiquette questions. And if we didn’t answer one of your questions, feel free to reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter, and we’ll do our best to assist you.

During your hectic time of wedding planning, it’s almost certain that everyone in your life will offer their opinion about something. Whether it’s something as small as your aisle markers or something as big as your wedding attire, you’ll hear every idea out there. While it’s great to have a supportive team of friends and family, there are certain decisions that should just be between the two of you. Check out our list of 10 things that you get the final say on.
While we’re all about respecting wedding traditions here at WeddingWire, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to put your own spin on things. From hosting the cocktail hour before the ceremony, to having both parents walk you down the aisle (not just Dad!), there are many ways to change up these age-old traditions. WeddingWire FallBook 2014 gives you 14 wedding traditions with a twist to make your nuptials uniquely you!
