One of the best pieces of advice anyone can get is to engage a wedding consultant who is a designer. You don't have to invest a ton of money to get the look you want. In fact, it's about great ideas, valuable resources and creative display.
The difference between planning a wedding and designing a wedding is simple. Consider stepping through the looking glass...into a world created for you, about you and around you. This is your wedding, this is your style, this is a statement for the rest of your life. Wedding design is about telling a story...your story.
