You are recently engaged and you now have a wedding to plan! You are excited and can’t wait to get started, but once you do begin to plan you realize it is not as fun as you thought it would be! Wedding planning is essentially a part-time job! If you think about the number of hours you spend emailing vendors, visiting venues, researching Pinterest floral ideas it can add up pretty quickly. Let’s say you spend 4 hours a week and you are engaged for one year, (52 weeks) that is 208 hours!
You probably already have a full-time job. How will you fit that planning into your schedule? Do you think you have that extra time to devote to planning? If not, hiring a wedding planner will save you not only time but money as well! To help you with this we have put together our top four wedding planning tips for you! We think you will find them very helpful!

- Focus on the Why – What is reason for your wedding day? Why are you doing this, other than marrying the love of you life Ask your self is the wedding day for you, your family, your friends? Are you trying to please everyone else? Keep perspective on the reason for the day. Hopefully you will doing this only once, so do it for you.
