When it comes to planning your blowout event – whether it’s a wedding, bar mitzvah, or corporate celebration, it’s all about the details: from guest list to seating charts to finding the perfect party favors. Even for the most experienced planners, the days leading up to the big day can be a bit…overwhelming. In fact, Event Coordinator is listed in the top 5 most stressful jobs of 2014, according to the Huffington Post. So how can you avoid unleashing your inner Bridezilla when you mother-in-law to be calls for the third time in a row requesting a seating change for Aunt Marge?
