Wedding Wednesday – 5 Questions to Ask When Choosing A Wedding Planner

Woop woop it’s my first Wedding Wednesday post!

If you follow me on twitter or have read the About Me section of my blog, you’ll know that I am deep into wedding planning. It is so intense! I am going to try and dedicate two Wednesdays per month to blog about my experience leading up to the big day and share the ups, downs, excitements and 20/20 hindsight lessons.  We are having our wedding and a traditional Nigerian engagement in Orlando, Florida over Valentines weekend.  Thankfully, all the major items are done – venue, photographer, catering, videographer, DJ, officiant. I even said Yes to the Dress back in May. We have a theme for the main wedding. If you’d like to see my vision check out my pinterest board, here.
