Your spare time is...

  1. Already at a premium
  2. Spent flipping through magazines and plan to call least 20 vendors for pricing.

Your fiancé...

  1. would rather be watching soccer than picking wedding invites with you
  2. is a Groom-zilla and wants everything planned his way!

Your wedding is going to be held...

  1. far far away...
  2. where you are currently living

Your daily check-list:

  1. is scratched at the back of old envelopes and little post-it notes!
  2. is meticulously typed in and colour coded

What is holding you back from having the wedding of your dreams

  1. time
  2. budget

When it comes to planning dinners with friends are you..

  1. ‘What dinners? Give me a buzz when you have decided the location and time!’
  2. The meticulous party planner

When it comes to delegating duties, you are...

  1. Totally comfortable
  2. NEED TO HAVE CONTROL! And do everything yourself

The wedding process...

  1. Don’t give a fig about it, just as long as the end product is beautiful!
  2. Will be something I’d enjoy being an active part of!

If you picked mostly 2: Girl, what are you waiting for? This was made for you! You’d want to download the ExtraOrdinary Tools as a guide and you’ll soon be on the smooth-sailing highway to your dream wedding. Just a tip, as the wedding date draws near, delegate tasksand duties to your bridesmaids so that you can truly enjoy the fruits of your labour.

If you answers are mostly 1: You may want to consider engaging a wedding consultant. With the hustle and bustle of daily life, it has become common (and for some, a necessity…) to hire wedding planners and leave the time-consuming and stress-inducing details to the professionals!

Professional wedding consultants can take care of the entire planning and coordination of the wedding. All you need is to discuss your ideas, expectations and budget. Do consider your level of involvement in the planning process, as it would help determine the wedding consultant you eventually pick!

Together with your bridesmaids, groomsmen and your wedding planner, all you have to do now is to sit back, delegate, not fret the small stuff and enjoy the celebration of a lifetime.
