lessons learned. many people believe that it’s all in the details. truth is, nobody else but you will remember the details! don’t sweat the small stuff. prepare early but don’t be obsessive about that one-day event. i’m all for making it the most beautiful wedding ever. but don’t expect everybody else to have the same definition of elegance and grandeur as you. make sure that you look back at your preparations as a joyful not a stressful event.
I’d rather not use ratings as I’m not sure where to gauge the ratings from. So I just asked ourselves the question, would i recommend them to my dearest friends who are about to tie the knot?
