Wedding planner Jodi Moraru had a great time answering your questions today. If you missed the conversation, click here to read all about how to budget enough time for hair and makeup, where to hold an outdoor barbecue wedding, what to do if you want a family-and-bridal-party-only rehearsal dinner, and more.
