We know and understand that you want everything on your special day to be beyond perfect but we suggest that you take things slowly. Take out an hour or two everyday to work on planning the wedding so you are sure of everything and don’t overdo it and stay sane!

Start Pinning

Every girl wants her wedding to be straight out of Pinterest. So for that, create a pinterest board and start pinning décor, outfit and hair and makeup ideas! After you have pinned everything start creating sections for each of your functions, and then decide with your family and friends!

Being a bride you can’t do everything at your wedding. So start assigning duties to your beauties. Let your family members handle the vendors, and coordinate things for you on D-day. Everyone should be clear ontheir part so there is no confusion left. PS- Make a group on Whatsapp to make it easier for yourself.
