Our wedding planning tip: Plan for extra time in all aspects of your wedding day. From getting ready, to travel, to the ceremony, to reception events, etc. The worst is to be so rushed around that you’re stressed out, running from one thing to the next, or even late. If you plan for an extra 15 minutes for each event/task, you will find that you will be able to leisurely relax and enjoy your entire day. There will be a bit of time to be spontaneous and plenty of time to visit, mingle and cherish each moment with your loved ones.
