Create your vision
This is one of the most important days of your life and you get to decide everything! It doesn’t mean you have to do all of the work but you definitely get to choose. Spend a weekend writing down what your perfect wedding looks and feels like for you. Truly focus on what will fill your heart with happiness and joy (not what will fill the hearts of everybody else:).
Start with the basics. Decide who, what, where and when. As you develop your vision, ask yourself “why.” Why get married in the mountains? Why wear an elegant white dress? Why have 500 people on the guest list and so on. If you like the reason for your why, then make it part of your vision. If you don't, leave it off.
Prior to starting Perfect Events by Jan, I spent many years leading large-scale projects. One thing I learned is that setting down your vision gets you halfway there. When it comes to your wedding, many of the answers are inside you. Writing them down just brings them out.
