I'm going to step down from my wedding paper soapbox, and put on a different hat for a second. I've been part of the Indianapolis wedding scene since 2009. I've seen it all, brides. And I'll tell you one piece of advice that is applicable to all shapes and styles of weddings.
 
Hire a planner!

Whether it's a full service planning package or a "month of" service, you will thank yourself later. Ten fold.
 
(Quick note: Don't confuse a "wedding planner" with "venue coordinator." The latter is a great resource, but keep in mind that they work for the venue, not you! Hiring a planner with your best interest in mind is key.)
 
A wedding planner will help you with ALL THE THINGS! Here's a snippet....
  • HELPING YOU STAY IN BUDGET
    Every great planner has excellent go-to vendors for brides of every price point. If they don't, they haven't done their research & you need to find one that has.
  • KEEPING YOU ON TRACK
    From vendor deadlines, to wedding invitation mailing dates, to the wedding day timeline, your planner has perfected her organizational skills and will make sure everything runs smoothly. Keeping your stress level way down & allowing you to savor the more important moments.
  • BRINGING YOUR STYLE TO LIFE
    You have a vision, but we all know making big wedding decisions can be stressful! Your planner will take your vision and advise on what details will work best, as well as be honest on what will not. Pick her brain! This isn't her first go-round. ;-)
If you're on the fence about hiring a planner, I hope you'll consider hiring one! They are worth their weight in gold. This is your big day, and this is one small investment that you'll be forever happy you made.

Wondering what life is like for a busy mom with a graphic design & laser cutting business? My days are filled with pretty paper, blissful brides, half-finished sketchbooks, half-eaten lunches, and lots of cuddling with my little ones. I look forward to sharing with you all of life's fun happenings (both in & out of the studio) here on the blog!
