    Proceed with caution | Friends & family as wedding suppliers MMW 82

    Honesty time. I rarely hear a positive story about couples who use friends and family as suppliers at their wedding. Blurry photos, last-minute cancellations, and broken friendships.  
    Have you already agreed to let a friend help? Don’t freak out  because today I’ll discuss:
    What you need to consider before you proceed with friends or family as suppliersWhat to do if you have already agreed to work with a family or friendAs long as you are comfortable with the advice and your decision, it can be magical. I want you to feel supported and equipped with everything you need to make fab wedding decisions.
    If you’re concerned, pop me a line on Instagram and we can chat.

    “Our wedding day was perfect and everything went to plan.” 

    Not often you hear that, right?  Odds are something will go awry on your wedding day and while we can’t predict the future we can put measures in place so you have the best day of your life, no matter what. I'm all about your wedding being the best day of your life.
    Today I am going to share my wedding day tight-spots and how I was able to resolve them. 
    It might be the weather, the flowers, hair and make-up, or running late. There is a solution and I will share it with you here.
    Yvette’s number 1 tip for dealing with wedding day hiccupsPS: Never forget, people who love and care about you will move heaven and earth for you on your day. Plus, you have your suppliers, whose job it is to smooth out any wedding day ruffles. Relax and go with the flow.
