Say Goodbye to Wedding Stress

Emerson Resort & Spa

With over 20 years of experience, Emerson Resort & Spa’s veteran event planner Marcilene Smith has the best tips for a stress-free wedding. 

1) First, start with a realistic budget and stick to it. 
2) Also, be sure to take advantage of venues that have on-site coordinators. An on-site coordinator will have all the logistics to execute your wedding according to your wishes, so you can focus on being the happy couple. 
3) Limit DIY — doing it yourself can save money, but also takes a lot of time and can be stressful. 
4) Finally, your guest count can change from day to day, so save your seating chart for last. To find out more about creating the day of your dreams, go to!
