When people ask me what I do for a living and I tell them I am a wedding planner, you cannot imagine the look of elation and interest that immediately floods their faces. The most common response I receive is often "Just like J. Lo, right? I love that movie!" I do smile and agree that I loved the movie too.
But, however much I may love "Law and Order", you will not see me out making citizens' arrests on the metropolitan streets. I know my boundaries. Watching a movie or a show doesn't necessarily make you qualified to do what it is you saw -- no matter how many times you've seen it or can quote from its leading actor.
What most brides don't understand is that this will hopefully be the only wedding they will ever plan. But I and my colleagues do this on a regular basis; so it is safe to say we've been around the block. I love meeting new brides, and especially newly engaged couples. It is great to see how you interact with each other and what your vision is for your beautiful wedding day. I will admit, there are times where a couple and I have spent hours just talking during our initial consultation that we actually forget that it is "business as usual". I try at this time to dispel the misconception that a wedding planner turns into a dictator that takes complete control of your wedding. Nothing could be further from the truth.
I'm going to share some things with you that may help you decide if a wedding planner is for you. Trust me, I will be the first to tell you if it is not; but if it is, you should definitely consider interviewing a few during your planning process. If your planner does not share these philosophies, it doesn't necessarily mean he or she is wrong, but you may want to consider what is important to you in the grand scheme of your event.
