Anyone Planning a Wedding?

I’m sharing some advice on wedding planning over at YLCF today…

“As a wedding planner, one of the first questions I tackle when talking with a client is “When are you getting married?” Often there are significant factors to consider, such as housing to prepare, schedules of extended family, or even a cross-country move.

The things that were important to me were there (like my spice cake), but I often felt really disorganized. Lots of people offering to help can equal a good deal of confusion over who’s doing what and how :)
