Now that there's only 9 months or so left until my wedding, I'm really starting to get a bit stressed that there's still a lot to do (caterer, flowers, tuxes, cake, finalize the honeymoon) before September and that it'll be here before we know it. I would recommend a wedding assistant, like the one my fiancee hired. She's not really a 'wedding planner' like more affluent folks might hire to totally plan an event. It's more like she's there for suggetions, ideas, and keeping a realisitic timeline for planning and scheduling everything. Quite an invaluable array of services at times. And worth the money, if you have it. Hopefully, it'll be the festival that we envision it being. I'm mainly concerned with everyone just having a good time.
