Getting engaged rocks. Walking down the aisle? Amazing.

Everything in between? Let’s just say it has its ups and downs.

Maybe you’re a bride who is just getting her feet wet. Maybe you’re a groom who is taking on a big chunk of wedding planning. Maybe you’ve made some headway in planning and need some help staying organized. Maybe you’re just in way over your head and are looking for a little perspective.

Maybe you just want someone to tell you what the heck to because this is all getting very overwhelming.

Planning a wedding without losing your mind (and your money) is an exercise in logistics, negotiation, project management, finance and style. And you only have one shot.

So how do you manage it all when you have real life to attend to on top of it all?
