I know – it sounds like a lot…but it really isn’t. My best advice to everyone out there (bride AND groom): DON’T STRESS!  At the end of the day, this is YOUR wedding day.  It’s something that will only happen once; therefore, shouldn’t you enjoy it??? YES!

Ekk! A binder? Wow - that is what you call ORGANIZATION :) And I bet everything ran smoothly. I've kept my promise to myself so far so let's hope I keep it up - no stressing and all fun!
