First Things First
So you've met Mr. Right and he swept you off your feet, popped the question, and gave you a gorgeous ring; and now it's time to plan one of the most important days of your life. Even though most women have dreamed of their wedding day since childhood, reality sets in and suddenly you are bombarded with decisions about save-the-dates, flowers, choosing a venue, and much more. It's no wonder many brides become overwhelmed! One thing to keep in mind is that not all the major decisions have to be made at one time. Take a little time to brainstorm and make a list of everything that you would like to incorporate into your day. For example, such a list might include orchids and manzanita branches, live music, an outdoor wedding, and Maggie Sottero gown. From here, you can decide what's important to you and what your budget might look like. After all, this is you and your sweetie's first opportunity to present your own unique styles and tastes to the world as a couple; and doing a little each day and jotting notes down when something comes to mind will help keep you organized and ensure that your day is everything that you want it to be.
