Stop pulling your hair out (you’re going to need it for the big day) and let these experts get you down the aisle in one piece.

Under the Big Top
It’s all so overwhelming. Take a breather and explore a slew of top-notch vendors (The Decisive Moment, Karisa G Paperie, Posh Hair & Makeup) at one-of-a-kind boutique collective Atlanta Wedding Loft.

Have It All
Wandering through a department store with a scanner just isn’t your bag. Bring back the old-fashioned romance of registering with Bella Cucina’s Casa Collezione line and add items like the original Tuscan grill and tagine cooker to your wish list.

Candy Girl
Let them eat cake — and a whole spread of custom confections. Lauren Chekanow of Sugar Style Events will whip up a dessert table (think old-fashioned cookie jars, homemade marshmallows, mousse in martini glasses) with your chosen theme or color palette.

Sitting Pretty
Round up the bridesmaids for a wild-as-you-wanna-be photo shoot with Cliq Boudoir (mimosa bar included) or let the three BFFs shoot you solo as a sexy surprise for the groom.

Best Wishes
Guests will shout “This is the jam!” when they receive your parting gifts: personalized Gemini Jams jars in flavors like apple pie, lavender peach, and raspberry plum.

Flowers Do Last Forever
Don’t toss that bouquet just yet. Postnuptials, take it to Palas Jewelers (or have the MOH handle while you honeymoon), where Angela Daniels will turn the petals into a necklace or earrings using her top-secret coating technology.
