Communicate, Communicate, Communicate

You know what they say- communication is key! This is so incredibly true when it comes to handling responsibilities like being a MOH. It is going to require a lot of planning and cross communicating with more than one person at a time. Being okay with speaking up and saying what needs to be said will only benefit you and ensure that the bride has a perfectly planned wedding day. It may seem messy in the moments, but stick to your guns and listen to what the bride’s true stressors, wants, and needs are. We promise that it will all be worth it in the end and the bride will be forever grateful to you. Things to be honest and communicate about?
