Call in to speak with the host
Helpful as wedding planners can be, many brides these days are going the DYI route—though still want everything from the floral arrangements to the stationary to be perfect. “If you fall into this category, we recommend you start by creating a décor summary,” says Krista Njapa, events director at C&G Weddings. “The idea is to get all your ideas, all your likes, all your dislikes, all the words that make you happy, all the words you don’t want your guests to feel, all the pictures you’ve ever come across—and then more functional things like floor plans, table shapes—get all this information is one place,” she tells Wedding Planning Radio host Jeannie Uyanik. “That way, when you start talking to vendors, the conversations aren’t just theoretical. You have the makings of a concrete plan.”
It's good to talk.
