Hello Everyone and Happy New Year to you all! I was trying to stay away from blogging and doing all the twenty thousand things I do but I just couldn't hold back today after reading the following blog about a bride who regrets not hiring a wedding planner.
Many newly engaged couples begin planning the details of their wedding with so many ideas and questions running through their minds. In addition to deciding the date and location, one important detail they must discuss is whether or not to hire a wedding planner.
I came across this post that shares a story of a heartbroken bride who decided not to hire a professional wedding planner. As I was reading I kept telling myself, "Ketty you hear this all the time." Every time someone comes up to me and tells me how things just "didn't go as planned" or "let me tell you my horror story" I really feel sorry because so much work goes into planning and to see it all just crumble it really brakes my heart.
This story is something I want to share with you all because I feel it will make many of you realize why hiring a wedding planner is something to consider. Here's the bride story in her own words:
“I hated all of the planning and felt so tired, stressed and sick of it all. I had so much stress even the week before and my venue treated me like dog doo doo the day and night before my event...I have been overcome with depression and anxiety over imperfect details. Most notably is that the day seems like a blur and this is most likely due to the fact that no matter how many times I asked, no one would get me some lunch...My husband felt as I did - starving! We felt like there were a million people around when we were taking pictures and no one thought to get some damn food. Anyway, I felt like this seriously compromised my day. The photos seem like a blur, not sure if they will even come out well, everything was so chaotic. We were 40 minutes late for pics. My bridesmaids would not let me wear a watch and yet kept horrible time. All I can think is that I wish I hadn't bought into what everyone was telling me about how this was my day, that everyone would take care of me, I could just relax and enjoy it, one BM said she promised that everything would be as I wanted...It was awful and my fault in it is that I should never have trusted or given others so much control and power over making sure I was taken care of.”
