A planner makes sure that your wedding turns out to be no less than: ”A dream come true.” However, it’ll be silly to think that a wedding planner is your personal assistant or family therapist — many brides I have come across have this same feeling. Today, I’ll unfold some secrets that most wedding planners don’t dare to say on your face.
”A hesitant client is very tough to handle —- couples should soak up all the ideas given by their wedding planner and take independent decisions, rather than leaving it all on him”.
”Don’t start to act like a professional event planner after reading a couple of blogs and surfing pinterest.”
”Don’t involve me in your lies. If you want to trick your family on wedding costs, do it on your own.”
”Our contract clearly defines what we commit to assist you with. We often do go overboard, but sometimes you take advantage.”
”Don’t use my shoulder to cry on after you have had a fight with your bridesmaid or the groom. Instead, share your personal issues with your mother and maid of honor. I can only assist you with your wedding plans.”
”We have a set timeline —- and if you can’t follow it you might incur extra costs or a vendor might fail to deliver on-time.”
”Don’t fume if there’s an alteration in the layout details. Stressing about where your favor boxes should be kept, or where the cake table should be placed —- is impractical.”
”Don’t keep calling up, texting, repeatedly about the same issue. Sometimes it’s impossible to respond when I am engaged with another client or vendor.”
”Wishing your wedding theme to match point-by-point with something you saw on Pinterest is unfeasible.”
”Don’t coerce your fiance into every single appointment — unless he’s willing for that.”
