My name is Barbara Esses and I do events for a living. I'm Ruthie Hecht; I'm an event planner and I work with and for my mother. We're going to teach you the do's and don'ts for the perfect wedding.

When a bride and groom get engaged, the first thing they do is decide when and where to get married. Where is an extremely important issue. It has to reflect the personality that hast to reflect their budget. And it has to please probably a lot more than the bride and groom. When one goes to decide where one is going to go and make a wedding, there are many many questions to ask. Which clearly has to do with the food, the service, the liquor, and what the particular place offers that is different than all the others.

If it's a hotel you want be sure that you have a suite to get dressed and a suite to sleep in both for the bride and the groom. If it's a restaurant, you want to know how much staff they're having, if anybody else is going to be there, if the space is going to be private.

There are many, many questions to ask when putting together a wedding. It begins with all the food. It begins with all the types of all the liquor that is going to be served. Even down the the types of soda--whether it's going to be generic or Coca-Cola.

So one has to put in a lot of time and effort. There are many magazines that give you ""to-do"" lists in them and will tell you how to ask the questions when you pick a venue. Please read them and be knowledgable about them when you go. Because the more knowledge you show to the venue, the more they'll have to do things in a more correct way and please you.
