WHAS11 wants to help ease that stress with a report from Angie's List that is all about making your big day go smoothly.
It's all about making the right decisions when hiring people to work for your wedding.
In 2011bridal shops, tuxedo shops and wedding planners all made repeat appearances on the most complained about categories on Angie's List.
When it comes to bridal shops and tuxedo rentals timing is the key. Experts say to document everything, get contracts that are very detailed and don't pay for everything up front.
Angie Hicks from Angie's List recommends you make a down payment, but don't pay for everything up front. Pay with a credit card and stretch the rest of the payments out as services are rendered.
We have done a number of stories with people who called devastated that their once in a lifetime wedding days were ruined by others mistakes. That is why it is important to do your homework and to work with a reliable company.
