What Sofia Learned:
Enjoy the wedding planning process. When you start getting frustrated remember the reason you are planning a wedding is because you are joining your life with the person you love.
Compromise when necessary… it is his wedding too.
Be true to your own style because the day of your wedding you want to feel you are in every detail. Delegate tasks because no one can do it all.
Finally, don’t lose sleep over the details that didn’t go as planned because no one else noticed.
