Del­e­gate, del­e­gate, del­e­gate. Mi­cro­manag­ing will back­fire. Par­ents love be­ing in­volved, so take ad­van­tage of their en­thu­si­asm.

Choose a re­li­able florist with great con­tacts so the pink hy­drangeas you jet in don’t ar­rive a shade of muddy brown.

Start look­ing for your dress at least nine months be­fore the wed­ding. Choose a wrin­kle-resistant ma­te­rial so you won’t look like a crum­pled heap when you alight from the car at the chapel.

Com­mu­ni­cate reg­u­larly with your par­ents. No mat­ter how west­ern­ised you think they are, there’s a good chance they will be dis­ap­pointed if you de­cide on a colour scheme tra­di­tion­ally re­served for fu­ner­als.
