Getting an engagement ring and a promise to spend forever with the person of your dreams comes with a lot of changes quickly. As a self-sufficient woman with a great head on her shoulders, it’s likely that once your fiancé got up off his knee, the wheels in your brain were already beginning to turn. You started to think about when, where, and how. Every little detail creating a long and intimidating list in your head. Nonetheless, you can do it. You know you can.
Okay. Now that your fantasy is built up, allow me to bring you back down to Earth. Yeah, I’m talking to you. While I realize and respect the fact that you can do this on your own, why in the world would you want to? Your wedding day should be magical in every sense of the word and that means that it will also be relaxing, enjoyable, and fizzing with champagne toasts, laughs, smiles and oh yeah, flawless nuptials. I don’t mean to imply that you couldn’t be the bride and the wedding planner on your big day. In fact, I’m 100 percent sure that you are not only capable, but that you would rock planning and executing your own wedding. Alternatively, I truly believe in my heart of hearts, it’s something you would regret once the day comes.
The Reality of Planning Your Own Wedding
In the months leading up to your wedding, it is likely that you might feel a bit overwhelmed here and there as you make decisions regarding what will feel like a mountain of matters. However, as your wedding nears, you will begin to find that your busy schedule has enough tasks on it to last you until your one-year anniversary. Trust me, this is not where you want to find yourself.
Should you have a say in what your floral arrangements look like? What about your dress? Your seating chart? Yes, yes, yes. But being the person who is responsible for getting all of your flowers into their proper placement and ensuring that your dress is wrinkle-free before you slip it on? No way! One of the major fear women have about hiring a wedding planner is that they will be surrendering all of the decision-making in the process. This couldn’t be further from the truth. A wedding planner is the person who takes care of everything you simply don’t have time to, while additionally ensuring that every moment of your wedding day is as beautiful and perfect as you have always imagined.
But What If You Ask Family & Friends To Help?
Mom, aunts, sisters and best friends want to help? While it is certainly nice to know they care, having those who mean the most to you doing your bidding ahead of your wedding won’t allow for you to have them there beside you every step of the way. Trust me the last thing you want to do is look around on your wedding day and realize all of your people are working and not able to be there in the moment with you.
