You would not believe the number of phone calls and emails from clients that start with the words, “I am so sorry to bother you with this” or “I know this is a really dumb question, but…”
While I do appreciate your kindness – STOP apologizing! That is what I am here for! You hired me (or another professional wedding planner) to help guide you through each step of the planning process because I have done this dozens and dozens of times, while you are doing this for the first (and likely only!) time.
As a professional planner, I know all of the ins and outs of planning a wedding, from how many songs you need to select for your processional (and I can help you choose them – you do not have to walk down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon in D, as lovely as it may be) to advising you that, yes, your escort cards need to be in alphabetical order, not arranged by table numbers.
Other questions I know the answer to:
- Who should you tip? How much?
- Is it ok for my brother’s girlfriend (whom he started dating a month ago) to give a toast at the wedding. (Um, that would be NO!)
- Is three hours enough time for bridal party photos? (Three hours is way too long – unless you have a bridal party of 20. Otherwise, you’ll be fine with 90 minutes to two hours, and not want to kill your friends, fiance or photographer before the ceremony.)
Do you see where I am going with this?
No question is a dumb question and I would much rather you ask me than try to answer it yourself.
