Planning your wedding can seem like a daunting task. Where do you start? What if you forget something? HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING?! Relax, we’re making it easier than it seems. Here’s how to get started and set the foundation for your big day.
1. First, pick a date! No pressure, right? We’re sharing some tips on how to pick a date if you don’t have one in mind right here.
