Dresses! Cake tasting! Bridal shows! Flowers! Love! Stress! Stress?!!
Yupp, lots of stress!
If you are planning a wedding and have not hired a wedding planner, or at least day-of coordinator, let me ask you, "Why not?!!"
Your wedding should be absolutely wonderful; you will marry the love of your life, you will be surrounded by friends family, lots of food, dancing and fun! You will laugh, you will cry, you will experience so many raw and unfiltered emotions!
Why ruin all of that with stress?!
Anyways! I'm saying all that to say all this; Towards the end, I even got stressed out! Me! The person who's favorite activities include list making and budgeting!
Everything turned out fine, because I planned everything out, but the last-minute stuff is definitely stressful! If you are the kind of person who likes to procrastinate things, doesn't like planning, list making, or budgeting, I would definitely recommend that you hire a wedding planner! This will be worth it in the amount of stress it saves you in the year+ leading up to your wedding!
A day of coordinator is a must, no matter how organized and cool-headed you are! Because let's face it, you can't be two places at once, you won't be able to organize things when you're in the middle of getting your pictures taken, and you don't want to be yelling at people on your special day!
That's Val above, always coordinating, even on her own day!
Let's start with the fact that right before the reception started, the taps that I had for the kegs, didn't work! Not only did she make sure that no one told me (because she knew that I would freak out, and that is something you should not be doing on your wedding day!!!), but she took charge (which is what she's best at!), and fixed the problem! We had beer at my wedding reception because of her!!! That was just one of the many things she did! Some more of the life-saving things she did on my wedding day were;
Bossed people around that needed bossing around, made sure that everyone was in their places and went down the aisle when they were supposed to, helped with the wedding rehearsal, set up everything at the reception hall the day of that we couldn't do the night before, brought out the cake and coffee when it was time, helped the bridal party and my family clean up at the end of the night, and a million other things that I can't even remember, because she made sure everything went so smooth!
Above, at the reception hall she lit all the candles, and broke all the glowsticks that are in the vases. Resulting in exactly what I wanted!
The reason I know that I needed a middle man, was because the day before my wedding when we were setting up the hall, I didn't have Val there, so every 2 minutes (I'm not even joking!), someone was asking me a question! Every time I heard my name being called, I cringed! It was the closest to losing my mind I have ever been!!! Above, me literally running around about to lose my mind, setting up the hall the day before my wedding.
So because of her, that did not happen on my wedding day!!!
