Have an upcoming wedding to plan? Managing weddings as event planners do is the wise way to go, if so. For instance, review the FAQs on the wedding photographers website to see how much time to book with the photographer, and then use this as a general guideline overall, if it works well for you. IN short, don't micromanage; i.e. don't try to squeeze in too much. Too many brides-to-be have ideas from childhoods that they think they need to incorporate into their special days. Forget all that nonsense. Focus. Keep things simple and sweet, and just get married. Period.
