It Is Our Wedding Day!

12 • 30 • 2011  |  Misc.
By the time this post goes live in a few days, it will be our wedding day, and I honestly am so happy that all the planning and fussing over everything is finally here to enjoy, and I get to marry the man that has changed my life forever. I know things will go wrong, but I hope that I take the words I have given to many of my brides, take it in stride, as you do not get a do-over. With all the little details of throwing three events (we had the traditional rehearsal dinner and then a welcome party the night before, and will be throwing a NYE Day After party tomorrow, in lieu of a typical brunch), I now value even more what having a planner is for. My job as a planner is not just to give my client the best vendors for their wedding, keep tabs on budget and help design whether wood cross back or chiavari chairs would look best in their venue. It is all of that, but also to be the filter of what brides don't need to hear about months before or even the week of their wedding. 
 
Obviously, I planned and designed my own wedding, but there were times along the way where I wish that I didn't have to hear that bad news from a vendor, keep track of the budget or construct a timeline that was seven pages and included 17 different vendors. There is a level of cushion that we provide for our clients, and I have truly realized how priceless that is! 
 
The good news is that I have a wonderful team of vendors working together to make our day so special, including my own staff and one of our wedding planner friends that has offered to assist during the core times of right before ceremony to after room flip. My anxiety over the wedding is really how many times I will cry, and also, being the attention of 285 people for an entire evening. I know I will get over it soon enough, but just last night I had a dream that we forgot to exchange rings during the ceremony. The wedding dreams are a whole separate blog post!! 
 
Anyway, I must get back to the final details of out of town gift bags, picking up and dropping off wine and packing up all the items for the wedding for the lovely Adrianna to take off my hands. I will definitely share more of my thoughts (...and hopefully a few photos) when we return from our mini-honeymoon. I wish you all an amazing 2012, and a restful end of your holidays. 
 
Cheers,

  Kathryn
