The big secret about wedding planning is that it's kind of fun. Everyone likes to complain about the stress, but seriously: You're picking out a dramatic dress, tasting a bunch of fancy food, and then thinking really hard about flowers. That's all going to be at least mildly enjoyable. Of course, it helps if your vendors have good taste, which is why people with nuptials to arrange should stop by A Soolip Wedding, happening this weekend at Vibiana (210 S. Main Street.) For $35, you get access to a well-edited assortment of stationers, florists, gowns, and makeup experts, plus cake, champagne, and a fashion show. Tickets are on sale at the Soolip website. Note the announcement that this is their tenth year in the business, and try to relax—you're in good hands.
