WHAT ARE YOUR PRO TIPS FOR PLANNING A WEDDING?

 

It just takes a bit of organization to keep everything on track when you’re faced with endless decisions, lists, deadlines and, you know, your own life to deal with. The trick is taking things one step at a time and recruiting friends and family to help. And give yourself plenty of time to plan. You’ll make things so much harder on yourself if you try to plan and oversee every detail and try to do it all at the last minute. If you have the budget hire a PLANNER even if it’s a day of planner. That is the best tip I can give a bride :)
