Twirling under the sparkly stars for your first dance with your loved one and celebrating the life full of love and romance you’ll share with one another, you’ll forget every moment of worry and stress that occupied the wedding planning process. But until you reach that moment of idyllic bliss, you’ll need to lay all of the pieces in place.
