GRANGER, Ind. — Before walking down the aisle to say “I do,” brides and grooms have an abundance of details to work out. From the flowers and bridesmaids to the cake and food, planning a wedding can seem overwhelming. But with patience, good budgeting and a little help, planning a wedding can become simpler — and less stressful — by following a few tips from Cher Goggins, owner of Merry Me Events in Granger.
“So many brides are getting married later at older ages. They are starting careers first and then getting married,” the professional planner said said. “So we try to be as much of a one-stop shop as possible.”
While not every couple can afford a wedding planner, Goggins said that a benefit to hiring someone to help with the process is that these professionals can help clients best spend their money because they know the standard cost of items.
But for a bride on a budget, Goggins has some wedding planning advice.
