Every event comes with a hitch, even the most well organized. And weddings especially can be stressful, regardless of the involvement of a planner. Because of this, it’s not enough to make a mental note of your to-do list; you need to write out a checklist of all of the things you need to do, significant and insignificant. This keeps you organized and helps you to stay on top of things.
