Why You Should Hire a Wedding Planner
One of the most emotionally high moments of your life is saying “YES!” to the person who just asked you to spend forever with them. If you’re anything like I was, you’re screaming it from the balcony because you’re so happy! (Any fellow “Friends” fans?!)
Within minutes after posting your ring selfie and announcing your engagement to family and friends, the questions, advice, and opinions usually start pouring in.
“When’s your date?!”
“Where are you going to get married?!”
“You should really have a big wedding!”
“What kind of dress are you going to wear?!”
“Whose catering?! Either way, I’ll have the steak!”
“Are you thinking about having live music?! I could bring my banjo and really get the party started!”
...and the questions keep coming until your wedding day!
The pressure, stress, and worry that can come along with planning one of the most special days of your life can take over the excitement of your engagement quickly. It’s so easy to lose sight of what you and your fiance want when everyone around you starts sharing what they think is best.
