Brides! Wedding Planning the Easy Way!

Knowledge is power with any endeavor but especially a new one.  When a bride plans her wedding, she is very much a project manager.  If that was her title at work, there's no doubt that it would come with a fair amount of stress.  So what would make planning a wedding so much more difficult?

It can be a number of things.  Here are just a few that make planning a wedding more stressful and completely different.

1.  A wedding is an emotionally-charged event.
2.  Relatives and friends alike come out of nowhere to offer "help".  Great at work, but planning a wedding, maybe not.
3.  Planning a wedding just doesn't fall into the category of something you do every day.  There is not a one-size-fits-all book to match your style!
4.  You aren't getting a salary.  Instead, you feel like money is falling through your hands like sand.
5.  Fifty years from now it just might make a difference as a fond memory or not!  At work it probably won't be remembered one way or another in 50 years.

So what do you do when you don't have time to read every book or magazine that is out there?  How do you learn what goes when interviewing vendors so that your vision is clear, you know what you will get for your money and why things cost as much as they do?  If you are a DIY bride, you're probably exactly that because you are low on money and are prepared to tackle some of the things that need to be accomplished. You might be thinking, "If only I had someone  help to tell me how it is done."

Here is a website for a workshop to help DIY brides. Please respond soon to get into these workshops.

Workshops don't cost as much as buying books upon books and tons of magazines.  At workshops, consider it an experience where you can ask questions of experts without waiting for the 2nd edition to be published!  Every workshop is like meeting an author.  At most workshops, the vendors have been selected because of their respect among peers.

As always..Wishing You the Greatest of Days
