You’ve got your venue, your photographer, your DJ, your dress, and your caterer.  You’ve sent out invitations and gotten most of your guest list finalized (as a side note– what’s up with people not RSVPing?  How rude!).  It would have been nice to have a wedding planner, but the budget wouldn’t allow it.  Or maybe you’ve hired a day-of coordinator (very good move, by the way), but she won’t be on the scene until a week or so before the wedding.
