  • Consult with Aislinn Events or your planner for recommended venues and ceremony locations. Consider alternative locations too. Book them with deposits and signed contracts. Annie or your planner will keep copies of your contracts, deposits and payment due dates.
  • Choose responsible attendants and groomsmen. Responsible is the key word here. Do I have to add reliable?
