Cupid’s Advice:

As exciting as weddings are, they are super stressful. Big or small, weddings are not only expensive, but time consuming. Cupid has some advice on how to make planning a wedding less stressful:

1. Set a date: You don’t have to set the date the day you get engaged but discussing when you would like to get married helps. If you and your now fianc√© want to wait a year or two, it helps you to build a time frame of when to things get done. Knowing the time of year and what year you would like to say “I do,” will also help you with figuring out venues, receptions, as well as other arrangements.
