Hello once again! I hope everyone’s summer has been a good one so far. I’ve been busy doing weddings almost every weekend - I just love seeing so many happy brides and grooms!
thing I’ve noticed during this last month when talking with brides and
grooms is that they were really glad that they utilized the expertise
of a planner/coordinator. They have all commented how smoothly their
weddings went and how all the little details were taken care of
beforehand so they didn’t have to worry about a thing.
A good planner will facilitate and guide you along to your special day. She or he will not take over, but will offer suggestions to make sure you are getting the best for your money. If nothing else, have a professional wedding coordinator assist for the last month of the wedding and the wedding day itself.
things do go wrong and if there isn’t someone there taking care of
these unexpected glitches, on whom will the task fall? You, the bride, your mom, your bridesmaid?
one of my weddings this summer, there was a major glitch in the flowers
that had been delivered. Immediately the florist was called and within
20 minutes I had enough centerpieces. On the Monday following the
wedding, I met with the florist, went over the faux-pas and the parents
ended up with a nice refund. These are the things that a planner/coordinator does - they personally take care of you.
Enjoy planning for your big day, but don’t ever be afraid of asking for a little assistance … it can go a long way.
