Kiddos and Responsibility on Your Wedding Day

Young children and responsibilities - what to do? If you're planning on having little ones in your parade, here are a few things you might want to think about if you are considering someone who might be a little young for the task. What do you want them to do? I always recommend really thinking about what you want them to do (and how far you're willing to stray). Kiddos can be tough to work with sometimes, but they can also be a highlight for the meaningful journey down [...]

Why get a wedding coordinator?

You'd be surprised by how often I hear this question. "Why should I hire a coordinator, can't my maid of honor manage everything?"
