Tips from Sabrina
Don't: procrastinate in your planning - hire all of your wedding
professionals as soon as the date is set. The best wedding vendors are scooped
up far in advance.
Don't: hire your wedding professionals until you have a working budget.
Know what you can afford and if you are pressed for money, budget more for the
items that are going to matter the most and less for the non essential "frills".
Don't: hire professionals just because they're the cheapest - like
everything in life, you get what you pay for. Your wedding day will be one of
the most important days of your life, make sure that the memories you have will
be good ones.
Don't: hire the first professional you contact - check out a minimum of 3
for a proper comparison.
Don't: be afraid to ask questions. If you are unsure of something, ask! A
lot of times wedding professionals assume that because they know what to expect
at a wedding, that the bride and groom know as well. If you are unsure, or
uncomfortable with any part of your wedding plans, don' t wait until it's too
late to ask questions.
Don't: assume anything - get everything in writing.
Don't: make decisions without consulting your mate - it's his/her wedding
Don't: invite everyone you've ever known - weddings are expensive.
Don't: worry about everyone else's advise - its YOUR wedding.
