Wedding planning is notoriously stressful. Now that you’ve gone through the process, do you have any advice or words of wisdom for couples who are currently in the midst of planning theirs?

The key is to plan plan plan every detail and think from the perspective as a guest to really cater to them. Have a schedule so your bridal party is aware of what needs to happen when. On the day, just trust your bridal party and let it all happen. Things will not go to plan and that is okay! Just take it all in and enjoy your big day, because it really goes by so quickly!
