When Life Brings you Lemons...

We've all heard the saying, when life brings you lemons - make lemonade. But what about when life brings you soggy black beans? You make Black Bean Hummus!

The same goes for Wedding Planning - if you find yourself in a situation where you are finding that everything is going swimmingly and you know your budget is unlimited and no matter what happens in life you can buy yourself out of it - that's fantastic.

But unfortunately for the rest of us, we usually have a budget - when putting together your budget know where your priorities lay. If it is with the flowers than know in your mind and on your budget that more than the average will be placed in the floral budget. If you LOVE LOVE LOVE a fancy schmancy photographer - than you might need to budget $5500 or more for a photographer.

And one little quick tip, don't force your vendors to do something they don't feel comfortable with - if they have never "done it that way" and say that one or two times, I wouldn't forcet them to, let your vendors stick to what they are good at, and consider maybe that vendor isn't the one for you.

But if you know in advance you won't wind up with a bucket of lemons.
