Do you have a friend who is getting married, or are you getting married yourself? Have you ever been to a wedding which was chaotic and unorganized-where the wedding party didn’t know where to stand, the food was cold and the DJ stopped playing music leaving “dead air” during dinner? Awkward!?!?!
We have had the honor of documenting so many beautiful weddings over the years, some of which were well organized, others, well, could have used some (OK…a lot) of help. If you are a bride-to-be, my advice to you is to take that extra step to get new and innovative ideas, add a touch of luxury and alleviate the stress from your most beautiful wedding day.
We recently had the pleasure of meeting an amazing wedding planner/coordinator, Tricia Fisk, of Weddings Realized (www.weddingsrealized.com). Her expertise in providing planning and coordinating services is evident in her personality and knowledge of her profession. In the years that she has been in the “wedding business”, she has offered couples an opportunity to truly enjoy every aspect of their wedding, from the planning stages to the day of their union.
What many couples don’t realize is that someone needs to be the “go to guy”, especially the day of their wedding. There are so many details that need to be attended to; delivery of the flowers, DJ, food, cake, making sure all parties needed for photos are in place and ready to smile, dress is flawless, officiant is present, and so many other needs.
Also, many couples don’t know that a wedding planner has great connections to other wedding professionals, and can refer you to an appropriate vendor. Often times a wedding planner can orchestrate and pass along a professional discount on flowers, rentals, venues etc. She can refer you to the best photographers and videographers in the area, where you can be sure that your wedding day is documented perfectly forever.
Couples preparing to be married should be able to concentrate on each other, not the minuscule details that can make or break their wedding day. Hand these stress makers over to a pro. I recommend that you call Tricia for a brief consult and see if she is a good fit for you. Ensure that your wedding day runs smooth and beautiful. Hire a professional wedding planner. It will be so worth your while.
