Married on Myspace

I absolutely love Married on Myspace.  It's great to see someone's wedding take place right in front of your eyes.  You don't usually get to see the entire planning process of a wedding, so this is a great opportunity to see it.

If you don't know what Married on Myspace is, it's a TV show based directly on Myspace.  They have a new episode every Thursday and every week, the viewers can vote on different aspects of the wedding.

Tonight was the finale of Married on Myspace and the couple got to have their dream wedding (well, kind of).  Here, watch it for yourself.

Here's some tips for making your own wedding wonderful, from their great wedding planner Anja Winikka, who is an editor for The Knot.

1.     DON’T wait up to 6 months to send your thank you cards.  For gifts received before the wedding, give yourself two weeks. For gifts given at the wedding, cards should be sent within the month following your honeymoon.

2.     DON’T include your registry information on the invitations. The best way to pass on this information is with a wedding website (check out the ones on!) or by word of mouth.

3.     DO only include the names of the guests you’d like to attend the wedding on your invitations. Want an adults-only ceremony and reception? Only put the parents’ names on the invitation. Want your single friend to bring a date? Include their name and “plus guest” on the invite.

4.     DO handle the awkward comments with class; and know when guests are being more-than-nosey with questions like: “when are you having kids?” and “how much did all of this cost?” or “is this really a white wedding?”

5.     DO utilize the internet! E-save-the-dates are growing in popularity, along with couples starting wedding websites to relay all the important information to their guests. An added plus: E-save-the-dates are green!

6.     DO keep guests at destination weddings entertained by suggesting activities for them to do during their stay. Some couples even prepare gift bags with local trinkets, maps and travel guides for their guests.

7.     DON’T ignore the tipping protocol. Unless gratuity is included in your bill, it is expected that you’ll tip the officiant and the church or synagogue ($500 or more), the delivery and set-up staff (around $5 to $10 per person), the reception staff (15%-20% of the food bill and $200 or $300 for the maitre d’), the stylist and make-up artist (15%-20%), and your driver or person responsible for your transportation (15%-20%). Tipping bakers, florists, your wedding planner, photographers and musicians is optional.

8.     DON’T have a cash bar. Try to adjust your budget by offering a wine selection or a signature cocktail so guests won’t have to fumble for money.

9.     DON’T ask for cash as a gift, even though survey’s show it’s the number one gift couples want. By default, many guests will give cash anyway.

10.   DO include dress codes on invitations so guests will know how to dress, which is especially helpful for those late afternoon weddings with nighttime receptions
