Have your friends alluded to the fact you might suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder? Have you already planned every little detail about your wedding and is now losing sleep over trying to figure out how you can clone yourself so you can coordinate your own weddings?
If you answered “yes,” then either of the “Day of” or “Month of” options are for you! We designed this package for “hands-on” brides that will (sooner or later) come to realize that they cannot coordinate their own wedding and be the bride too.
