What common mistakes do you see couples making?
Planning a wedding can be stressful! while making sure everything is perfect for the big day, I often see couples get lost in the wedding shuffle. They become consumed with making the day perfect for everyone, but often lose focus of what they want for their big day! With opinions coming at you from social media, moms, grandmas, your girlfriend, and so many others, it is important to remember why you are planning this wedding in the first place. This day is to celebrate your love as a couple! Remember that, when things get overwhelming, those moments will remind you to focus on how you want your day to be.
What’s the best tip you have for a couple planning a wedding?
Ask questions! More than likely, you will only get married once! So, your wedding planning expertise may be limited. Ask your vendors questions!

What questions should couples be asking that they don’t know to ask?
