Read on to hear advice from Deirdre for other brides!

I would advise brides-to-be out there to consider budgeting for a wedding planner. It seemed like something that was out of my price range, but I found out early in the process that a lot of vendors are much more willing to negotiate on price with a wedding planner. And most importantly, I was completely stress-free throughout our wedding weekend and was able to enjoy every moment because my planners (Meredith and Shannon of Sage Nines) handled anything and everything that popped up behind the scenes.
