Have you every heard a bride tell you how much fun she had planning her wedding and how perfect everything was? If you have, she most likely was not being honest. Let's face it who wants to admit they were ripped off, taken advantage of, didn't get the right things delivered, the timeline was a mess and they were way over budget? No one! That my friends is what keeps perpetuating this terrible problem. Everyone else not telling the truth makes it impossible to prepare others who are planning their wedding next.
How to plan a wedding the right way
The very first thing you should do is to contact the most experience #weddingplanner in your area. Seek out the person who has the most 5-star reviews. Set up a meeting with them and find out if they can help you get the wedding you want in your budget. I know you will want to resist this advice, but you are on my blog trying to find out how you can plan your wedding the best way possible. SO~ follow my advice.
Get rid of misconceptions
You may be thinking, "they just want to spend my money" or " why should I spend the money on them when I can put it toward something else" or " I don't want them to control my wedding" Granted that could be true for some planner that you meet, but not all. Did you know that in every case that a client of mine has followed my advice I have save them more money than they paid for my services? Also, I did control a lot of areas for my clients, that is why they got superior services. Did you also know that because of my industry connections, I have a stronger influence and buying power than any individual can have? I also have a compassion for my clients so, I can act on their behave to make sure they get what they want. So, just like you will go visit many different venues, photographer, and other services, why not just go see if a professional experienced planner can offer you the same?
Don't listen to your friends advice, they probably did it wrong too!
