Tips on Planning a Wedding

The incentive to make your wedding planning easy is that you’ll reduce a lot of stress! Here are a few that might help.

  1. Trust Your Instincts

There’s pressure — from parents, society, social media — to do things a certain way. This is the day to do your way.

  1. Be Clear About Your Expectations

Again, it’s your day! Share what you like, don’t like, envision, and hope for. Ask questions of anyone from the florist to the soloist.

  1. Set a Budget And Keep It

It’s the backbone of your planning, so get a good picture of who might contribute, or if you’re on your own.

1. Atalaya

This Spanish-Moor castle at Huntington Beach State Park makes for an incredible backdrop. Exchange nuptials at a National Historic Landmark, steps from the beach. The park allows outside vendors and alcohol for the reception, and rates vary by season.
