Begin to weigh up your quotes with your initial values, does having a remote memorable location matter more than having 8 bridesmaids? Do you need a stylist or someone in charge of creative direction? Is this wedding becoming too big for you? Remember you are learning to plan an event you have never planned before, be patient with yourself and don’t be afraid to give yourself some thinking room.
The decision making time should always be longer than executing the decision itself. Don’t rush the decision making time, no matter what the “timeline to planning a wedding” images on Pinterest say.
Have your inspiration board handy and evaluate your quotes as you go. Ask questions and write notes. I’d even recommend keeping a journal of the process highlighting why you’ve made certain decisions for your future self.
