After you have set the date (and the budget), it’s time to start listing all the things that are near and dear to your heart. So I ask you… in years to come when you look back on your wedding day, what will you want to remember? Somehow I don’t think it’s the napkin fold. Gather up your favourite planning tools – personally, I am a sucker for a great wedding planning book with…
