I knew a woman who planned her whole wedding herself, every detail. Made her decorations, found her own vendors, even had the organizational expertise to create functional timelines. But the day of her wedding, when she was busy getting hair and makeup done, she realized she couldn’t go down and meet the florist, or check that the centerpieces were like she wanted. She had rented audio equipment, but there was no one there to set it up, because she had to get into her dress.
Not to worry, she sent her mom to the reception room to sort out flowers and decor, and her dad began running cables out to the ceremony site for sound. Crisis averted, right? Sure, but while mom was busy straightening out the reception room, she missed seeing her daughter get into her wedding dress, and since dad was doing sound checks the bride didn’t get to see him at all until it was time to walk down the aisle.
Your wedding day flies by, everyone will tell you that! It will only go by faster for those of you who are hurrying and scurrying around, so leave that to me and allow yourself and those closest to you to enjoy every moment.
Spoiler alert: that woman was me. It’s been eight years since my wedding, and while I will still tell anyone who will listen how perfect my wedding day was, the truth is I wish my parents hadn’t had so much to worry about. My wedding convinced me absolutely of the need for a wedding coordinator. Today I am thrilled that Emily Katherine Events offers both full service wedding planning and wedding coordination, so no matter your planning needs we can help you enjoy a stress-free wedding planning experience!
