I have been planning my wedding for over a year and a half now. My words of advice to the recently engaged – make your engagement as short as possible. The length of your engagement is in reality the length the wedding planning process takes. With our wedding on May 24th, planning is almost complete but we are also neck deep in smoothing out the nitty-gritty details that take forever and never seem to end. I think that couples should also get a honeymoon right before the wedding. For me, it would be a weekend by myself to regroup and not answer any phones, emails, and definitely not look once at a to-do list or calendar.
Somewhere by the water and very, very isolated would be perfect for me.
