Wedding Planning – First Things First, A Little Proposal, A Big Yes and A Wedding Checklist
Two small but exciting words “wedding planning” that include so much more than one would imagine. Until of course that day is here.
Once the question is asked and the person on the receiving end has responded in the most positive way all that remains is the planning, wedding planning that is. And to say that’s an understatement is well an understatement.
When that special moment does arrive there isn’t a bride (and groom) amongst us that don’t imagine a picture perfect celebration. We all think it’s all about the thrill and beauty of the day. But realistically there is so much to consider and plan for. And really it does takes a lot of time, brain power, energy and help to plan that flawless (fingers crossed) wedding everyone dreams of.

With so many great checklists available on line and via other resources, before you get started with all those wedding details, find a checklist that will work for you. Once that is taken care of, let the planning begin!
