Wedding Planning Decisions, This vs That with Kelly McWilliams
This vs That: Free vs Paid Planning Resources
Show Notes

Y'all. WEDDING PLANNING IS HARD.  There are 4,654,643,842 wedding planning resources (wedding planning tools, checklists, and budgets) available for free on the web. 4,654,643,826 are wrong. LIES! #fakenews.  The best example, google "wedding budget".  You're going to get 12k arbitrary budgets, none of which have I found to be correct.  Why?  Because every wedding is different. Depending on where you are getting married in the world, the number of guests you are having, your priorities, etc. these are the things that actually influence your budget. That budget you found at doesn't know or take these things into consideration.

We also chat about why sometimes its best to hire an amazing, well seasoned day-of coordinator vs a low quality inexperienced full service wedding planner.
In this episode Michelle and Christy are going to tell you about their new wedding planning masterclass. They created it for those who are planning on their own.  They created to give you a sigh of relief.
