Keep your guests comfortable by offering parisols, pashminas or umbrellas if it's going to be hot or cold out.  This a also a great way to add touches of color into your wedding day!

Avoid big gaps in timing (between the ceremony and reception) and keep things moving during the reception. Consider having activities, dancers, or musical performances throughout the night.

Floramor's Laura Little and I collaborated on this list of budget tips to keep in mind when planning your big day.

No bride-to-be should be without a copy of Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette by Peggy Post.  This is especially helpful if you don't have a planner to help with etiquette predicaments!

You can never go wrong with edible favors, whether it's homemade jams, whoopie pies, or bags of candy.

On Sunday, I attended the San Francisco Wedding Fair at the Four Seasons. While there, I had the pleasure of meeting Tres Sugar editor Tara Sharp and she asked me about wedding trends for 2012. 

First up, oyster bars during cocktails are a fun trend, especially with the popularity of local oyster purveyors such as Hog Island Oysters.

Another trend that continues to be popular is late-night food for those hard partying guests.  Whether it's a food truck, sliders or tacos, just be sure to serve it well after dinner (at least two hours after entrees are cleared).

Check out Tres Sugar's article to see what other fun trends other pros shared in 2012 Hottest Wedding Trends!
