Organization is the single most important element to planning a wedding, because good organization will prevent you from becoming overwhelmed or stressed through the coming months.
Rather than jumping in headfirst, take a moment to consider your options. If organizational skills are not your strong point, it may be well worth your time to hire a wedding consultant or event planner.
If you want to plan your own wedding, consider creating a Wedding Book, a binder will several sections for all of the different elements you plan to include in your wedding. Take full advantage of the printable planners section of Country Weddings, as they are an invaluable organizational resource for any bride.
