We know that organizing an entire day down to the minute can be extremely stressful. We will work with you and your wedding planner to create the most stress free timeline for you. Please keep in mind that everyone’s wedding is different and you aren’t bound by anyone else’s rules! Add elements to your day that you’ll be excited for (like yoga in the morning or your favorite playlist for getting ready). These small details will help to make every piece of the wedding less stressful and more fun for you.
