Chris and I reserved the last few weeks before our big day for all the little finishing details. With all the bigger decisions made, we had a bit of time to focus on particulars like the invites and stationery, the cake, seating chart, finally booking our limo and the favors.

In the first few weeks after Chris and I came back from our vacation engaged, there was a flurry of confusion about what exactly to do regarding wedding planning. I remember trying to think of who to call, what to ask, what books to read—I just wanted to get a handle on everything and so I could get started. Being the bookworm that I am, I promptly downloaded 5 wedding books onto my Kindle and read pretty much all of them. Each book of course said something different, but the main theme that was common among all of them: Get organized!

Latina magazine's Managing editor (and all-around awesome chica) Yuliana Gomez planned her whole fairy tale wedding in just six months! We knew she was organized, even we were super impressed, and think you will be too. This is her story of becoming a Modern Latina Bride...

I am just 10 days away from my wedding and I’m finally starting to get a little nervous! Not necessarily because of the commitment I’m making to the love of my life, but because I want to make sure I get all the little things done for the wedding. I have been so on point with checking things off my list that I don’t want to forget anything now.

Although I must admit I haven't really been going by a legit "to-do" list like most brides, I think I've been doing pretty well keeping everything organized and getting things done.

When thinking of a perfect father/daughter song to dance at my wedding, what comes to mind is an old school salsa song. I know some of you may think it’s a bit impersonal and not typical father/daughter music to dance to, but there are several reason why a salsa song is very fitting for my papi and I.

Getting married to the person you love and want to spend the rest of your life with is such a beautiful testament to the relationship you have with one another. I can’t wait until the day comes for me to experience that milestone in my own life and I believe EVERYONE should be entitled to this form of expression. The right to wed should be solely based on love and not on gender.

In life there are ups and downs and in marriage, you commit to "better or worse, in sickness and health," right? Well, after being engaged I knew I was ready to take that on. I envisioned Hec and I as two little old people taking care of one another and having silly, unimportant bickering like only two people that have spent their entire lives together can do.

For as long as I’ve been working at Latina, I’ve been in a relationship with Hector. And, just like in my job, I’ve dedicated time and energy into my relationship to make it lasting and successful. Fast-forward three years and I am the Fashion Market Editor at the magazine and still going strong with my live-in boyfriend. Everything was going according to plan in both areas of my life until one day my personal life skyrocketed.
