  • Choose a venue: traditional, non-traditional, and everything in between
  • Hire good vendors and keep your friendors (and tells you why DIY doesn't always save money)
  • Figure out catering, rentals, and everything else Pinterest forgot to tell you
  • Reality-check wedding d cor
  • Create and write a ceremony that really represents both of you
  • Get everyone to show up...and have a good time
