Getting married seems a simple thing. Two people who are in love with each other decide to spend the rest of their lives together till death do them apart.
Queue the evil laughter from somewhere above (or below) as the reality of a wedding sets in. Finding the right people to work with, finding a reasonable price, finding what you imagined within a reasonable price, having a million other ideas from every person you speak to added to yours and you look up one day and what you imagined is lost. Relatives to please, friends to not insult, frenemies to insult or not as you choose, (hey we all have them – don’t judge me), traditions to abide to, and the list goes on.
With all these things and more to consider the key to a successful wedding is finding people and individuals who are easy and cool to collaborate with. Who are interested in making your special day exactly that – special.
I have searched, got recommendations, talked to and found exactly those individuals in my wedding planning endeavors. They have been supportive, understanding, excited and accommodating to all our requests and ideas. It was not easy to find them (though some are very popular) and for that reason I want to tell everyone else about each individual & group I am collaborating with for my big day.
Also I wanted to help out my ladies with an honest and realistic look at wedding planning.
