Irina and Ryan managed to plan their entire Utah wedding long-distance while living in Canada
. For any bride in a similar situation, you know that you really need to trust your wedding vendors since you can't always meet them in person.From the bride: "It wasn't an easy task trying to plan a wedding from so far away, but the internet makes things so doable these days! Ryan and I made mutual decisions on most things, which was really good, and I didn't feel like I had to plan the whole thing alone, what with my family not living close to me."
While many of you will be traveling to India to shop for your trousseau, some of you are placing your faith in your mothers or other relatives to shop for your wedding attire and jewelry. Irina did just that when trusting her parents to select the clothing and jewelry for her bridal wear and for the wedding gifts, much of it from Kolkata, India
