The challenges you are faced with while planning your wedding can be enormous. As you plan your wedding, you take on a new roll: wedding planner. It's like a complete new job. Like you don't have so much going on in your life already. If you have the funds available, it's a great idea to hire a wedding coordinator to help with the daunting task.
Some area planners to consider:
Sixpence For Your Shoe
Details Wedding & Party Planning
I find it helpful to make check lists. Now, my husband hates them... but I honestly think it makes me feel as though I'm accomplishing things when I can check things off. Make a spread sheet in Word and check away! You'll find it helpful to come up with an initial budget and give yourself an idea of how you want to spend it. Which areas you have more for (or are more important to you).
Most importantly, don't stress out! Things go wrong with weddings all the time. The most important thing is that you understand that and know that you have hired the best of the best to take care of the details. All of your vendors come together and work well together.
One of my favorite ladies in the wedding business is Sara Faella. She's the creative force behind Sara Faella Designer Stylist. She'll come to you and take care of your hair and make-up needs. She also designs some pretty fabulous couture hair pieces and accessories.
