Planning your wedding doesnt have to take a year to plan.  Sometimes the best events are the most spontaneous ones. The same philosophy applies to weddings as to any other party. Brides should look at it as simply the best party they’ve thrown, and doesn’t always mean big bucks. Every choice should convey a sense of who you are. If things aren’t perfect, no one will know but you. Your guesses are there to help you celebrate your special day
