Enjoy the moment:
You will hear this from everyone... "it goes by so fast."

Believe me it really does.

Once your wedding day starts everything else is a blur. Be sure to enjoy every moment of the day. There will be at least one thing that will go wrong on your wedding day ... don't stress! Remember why you are there and what really matters. You are marrying the love of your life with all your family and closest friends around you. Refer to tip No. 5 on how to not be stressed on your big day.

Come Up with a Design, Theme, and/or Colors:
This will be very important when meeting with vendors. It may help to book your venue first, since it should go along with your design.

If you haven't heard of Pinterest I highly recommend that you create an account and get started on you wedding board. You can bring your Pinterest board with you to your meetings with your florist, cake designer, wedding planner, etc so they can see your ideas.

Get a Wedding Planner:
Of course I'm going to tell you to hire a planner. Whether you need a wedding designer to help you with design, budget, vendor meetings or just a day of coordinator. You don't want your mom, maid of honor, or yourself running around on your wedding day setting up items or having to worry if the cake isn't delivered on time.

Leave the day of details to a professional. Also hiring a wedding planner can help you save money. Our company works with many vendors that will offer our brides a discount. The vendors know that they won't have to worry about the day of details since we will be there taking over for the bride. Wedding planners can also help negotiate prices with vendors.
