A wedding requires meticulous planning, and you want to leave as little to chance as possible.  For years, I have been hearing from my Brides that their friends were SURPRISED that they were so relaxed on their wedding day.   Here are some of my insider secrets for YOU if you are a Bride who has trouble giving up control.

  1. Delegate.  When one of your friends asks you, “What can I do?” give them a small task and check it off your list!images-11
  2. Hire Experienced Professionals and make sure to have a Great Wedding Planner. This will be your one and only wedding, but for professionals in the industry, we’ve had experience in dealing with many difficult situations.  We can help you greatly calm your nerves.wedding-planning-tools
  3. Turn off your cell phone.   Anyone calling you on your wedding day really should be speaking to someone else other than YOU.  Hand your cell phone over to one of your trusted attendants.images-12
  4. Surround yourself with positive people.187241fde868559354b8edca7bdc7956
