From the actual ceremony to the reception, every bride’s dream is for her big day to be flawless, fun, and beautiful. For this to happen some serious planning is involved from the major decisions of what venue to book down to the final details of which centerpiece to decide on.

Cooking: does just the word send you into a panic? While many enjoy cooking and see it as a hobby or way to relax, others view cooking as a chore. Just the other evening I was on the phone with my significant other and agreed to make dinner. This was at about 3pm during my typical workday and my fridge consisted of bottled water and condiments. I hung up and stared at my phone wondering what I’d just done. “You don’t even know how to cook,” a voice in my head screamed.
Sure, the wedding is all about the bride but let’s not forget the bridesmaids! Unlike picking the venue, dress, and all other major decisions, the bridesmaid gift does not have a specific timeline. The rule of thumb is to aim about two months before the actual wedding but it’s really up to the bride. Another big question may be cost. How do you pick how much to spend on a bridesmaid gift? A good way to figure this out is obviously by your budget but also by how much you’ve asked the bridesmaids to spend on the wedding overall. Typically, the maid of honor receives a bit more lavish gift as they do more of the planning.
