Her Advise To Brides2Be:

“For my brides I always advise that they take things  easy, you cannot do everything yourself, allow an event planner take charge of your wedding ( make the calls, book the vendors e.t.c) by doing that  it allows you to think of some other things you might want to put in place. Also brides should make concrete arrangement with their vendors, the right time and venue for everything should be stated”
