Dear brides-to-be, we get it—wedding planning is stressful. You want your special day to be a perfect, Instagram-worthy affair that your guests will remember for the rest of their lives. Naturally, you and those around you must work very hard in the months prior to your wedding to ensure that your perfect vision comes to life. And yes, some may find you a bit too harsh, at times insulting, but the end justifies the means, right?
