Shaley Ham, a.k.a. the West Desperado, has a few wedding tips for you brides to be!

“A few things I learned from planning my wedding:
– Have 2-3 people who you trust to bounce your ideas off of. Everyone (& I mean EVERYONE) will give you their opinion and unsolicited advice. Block out all that noise and trust your small circle for the things you need a second set of eyes on. 
– Sure, some of the small details won’t get noticed by your guests, but stick to your guns on the small details that are important to you for your special day
– Save money on things that won’t matter at the end of the day, and put that money towards memorable things. For us, we borrowed all our tables and chairs, so as a result we had a mix of wood, plastic, & metal chairs… BUT we served our guests brisket and smoked mac & cheese. The trade off was so worth it
– You can plan for a year, but everything really happens in the week leading up to the big day. Find ways to stay stress free & people you can delegate work to during that time

“In the end, what matters most is the sacred union between you and the love of your life. Enjoy your day spent with all your loved ones.♥️” –Shaley Ham, West Desperado
