Big Takeaways
Understanding what others are going through can really allow ease in the wedding planning process. A common topic that is brought up is that friends might be feeling some pain in response to your engagement and marriage. The best idea is to show some grace.

Try not to pick apart everything after the wedding. You want to have the memory of your day in a good spot. It feels nice to carry an amazing, glowing feeling. With obvious exceptions, like needing to deal with bad reviews, and customer service issues, let the rest go.

A good mindset going in to the wedding goes a long way! It really helps the ability for you to enjoy it. The best decisions will be made when you can compare options, and sleep on it, and really spend time figuring things out. This is where a planner can come in handy too.

Reviews mean a lot. It is important to think critically about what you are saying. Most issues can be handled interpersonally. The best way to insure a great wedding day is to meet with the vendors, talk to them, ask questions, and go from there.
