  A Brides Guide To Planning The Perfect Wedding

One common denominator among successful, care-free weddings is 'planning ahead.' The more the bride plans ahead , the more she can relinquish her need to oversee the myriad of responsibilities and delegate them to someone else on the wedding day. The end result: The bride can have more fun, enjoy her guests and drink in that dreamy day.

To prepare for your wedding ahead of time, requires being practical. It is critical to recognize, that as the bride, you cannot oversee all of the logistics to your wedding while it is occurring. Consider appointing a friend, or friends, or hire a paid consultant to oversee the event for you. We recommend making this decision in advance so that any of the vendors that you hire will be informed of who will be in charge on the wedding day.

We have not only provided you a detailed Wedding Planner Checklist, but we have outlined a few questions to help you plan ahead. Try to think of the responsibilities for each of your selected professional wedding vendors. This will help in adding to this checklist we've provided below.
