11. Decide what kind of planner you want
That is, a human one or a notebook one. Hiring a professional wedding planner can save you a lot of time and stress, but it may not be in your budget. If you’re planning a smaller gathering, a paper planner could work just as efficiently. (This is what wedding planners won’t tell you.)
12. Find the perfect photographer
The flowers will wither. The cake will be eaten. The only parts of your wedding that will actually last as long as your marriage are the wedding bands and the photos. Make sure you hire the right person to preserve those memories, and it wouldn’t help to use these tricks to look better in photos.
13. Browse wedding magazines
Hitting a wedding planning roadblock? Overwhelmed by suggestions? Browsing through wedding magazines and blogs can help remedy that feeling. Between folding pages and bookmarking websites, you’ll find creative ways to plan a memorable day without breaking bank.
