You know, I wish I could tell you that wedding planning will be a breeze. I wish I could tell you that everything will be PERFECT and go just as planned. I wish I could tell you that it’s actually not that much work or that it’s not that costly, but I can’t. It is both challenging and costly.
I am here however to give you some practical advice on navigating the planning process and to clear up your misconceptions and maybe some unrealistic fairytale expectations. So here we go!
11. DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT plan to do 1.5 million things the day before your wedding! You have NEVER in your life experienced the time moving as fast as it will the day before and the day of your wedding. Get it all done earlier! Hair - sure, nails - sure, but you should not be making bouquets, running a bunch of errands, dropping this off, picking that up, etc. just don’t do it.
Moral of my story will always be to hire an experienced and quality wedding planner (and team of vendors) to make sure you don’t have to do more work than necessary.
