Summer Wedding Secrets From Celebrity Party Planner Mindy Weiss

With wedding season in full swing, we thought this was the perfect time to introduce you to L.A.'s best wedding planner: Mindy Weiss. This legend may have a client roster that reads like a Hollywood power list, but just because she's responsible for Nicole Richie's nuptials, Gwen and Gavin's gorgeous wedding, and Katy and Russell's Indian I Do's doesn't mean that this all-star event expert doesn't have some tips for the rest of us on how to create an elegant summer wedding without going into debt. And while you can check out her website, book, and app to get some A-list advice, we thought we'd go directly to the source and get Mindy's top five summer wedding secrets to ensure that you tie the knot in style on your special day.
