We get it – your wedding day is like that dream vacation you've been planning forever, and you want every moment to sparkle. And who needs stress on their big day? Not you! That's where we come in.
From the 'OMG, I can't believe it's here!' morning prep to the 'We're dancing like nobody's watching!' evening bash, your wedding day is your time to shine.
This is your ultimate wedding day schedule to help you plan an unforgettable day, starting at the first cup of coffee and ending with the final DJ drop.
Morning Wake Up Call
The wedding day will be action-packed, no matter how it is planned. We highly recommend having family members assigned to certain tasks, hiring a wedding day or event planner, and/or working with a highly experienced wedding venue, such as Diamond A Ranch.
