When it comes to planning your wedding, make it utterly and completely yours. Don’t worry about traditions or the latest trends if they don’t fit with who you are as a couple.
This wedding planning resource page is here to help you do just that. I want you to own your day and to help take away any and all of the stress that can come with planning a shindig of wedding proportions.
