Some hit up city hall on a Wednesday. Others have had centerpieces picked out since fifth grade. No matter what path to matrimony you take, the big day is always big. These are twenty-four hours that you will play and replay for years. Stretch out the excitement and giddiness of the day as long as possible with pampering rituals, getting-ready routines, and keepsakes so special they become talismans.
