GET THROUGH CONFLICTS

LET GO
Fussing over every detail sounds efficient but it’s one of the least effective ways to get the job done. Let go of obsessing over every detail and realise that you can’t control everything that happens on the wedding day. Guests aren’t inspectors. They are there to enjoy the celebration and appreciate the day’s atmosphere. So relax!
