Our wedding was great! September is a perfect time to have a wedding in southern California. We had a very large wedding, 500 people. Our reception was also packed with stuff. My recommendation is always put more money and time into your pictures and videography, because that is what you're left with in the end. A detailed itinerary works as well! Wedding mapper was a great source to provide directions especially since we had so many events on different days at different places. I wish I had started my guest list through wedding mapper especially because of the seating chart. THAT is a really awesome tool, just a little difficult to adjust to fit a wedding of 500 people :). So far this site is great!
