Tips for those in the planning process; Give yourself plenty of time and don’t leave anything to the last minute. If you do this you can enjoy yourself during the planning process as nothing is rushed and get super excited during the final run up to the wedding. Also keep your eye on websites such as Ebay and Sell My Wedding to get some bargains.
