A Wedding Planning Gratitude List

Besides your fine fiancé, there are lots of things to be thankful for during wedding planning!

We know it's not always buttercream and ballgowns, but even when the planning gets tough we encourage you to embrace and enjoy this special season of life.

To help you along, we've put together a short wedding planning gratitude list—and totally advocate coming up with some ideas of your own:
  1. Yoga pants for curling up on the couch with HereComesTheGuide.com.
  2. Coffee when you need to amp up your planning productivity.
  3. Wine to help you unwind.

  2. Pretty notebooks to write all of your wedding to-do lists in.
  3. When your fiancé eagerly helps out with a wedding task.
  4. Catering tastings. And cake tastings.
  5. Donut walls.
