By | GO Girls, GO Weddings, Uncategorized, Wedding Advice | No Comments

Hi friends! Sarah here. As many of you know, I am planning my own wedding this year, and it has *ironically* not been my favorite. Turns out, it’s a lot easier to do this stuff when you’re not emotionally attached to every teeny tiny detail. Shocker. The other day my maid of honor said, “try not to stress too much.” And I casually thought to myself, “EASY FOR YOU TO SAY, WOMAN!” But then I got thinking….there have been some definite things that have helped me manage the stress and pressure throughout this whole process.
