All About

Amanda's Tips:

Hire a wedding planner: "Details, details, details! No matter how much of a micro-manager you may think you are, nothing can prepare you for managing the multitude of details involved in pulling off the perfect wedding."

Splurge on a great caterer: "They can make or break your reception because they are involved in all those little details, like dressing the tables and the food presentation."

Ask vendors you trust to recommend others: "For example, ask the event coordinator at your location to recommend florists, caterers, bakers and musicians. They will know from experience who is good and who to avoid."

"Most importantly, if you are the bride or groom, let all those potential hiccups roll right off your back and take time to enjoy your wonderful day!"
