As I prepare for my brother’s wedding this week I am now put into my clients’ shoes. I am on the other end realizing the group effort and the need for a wedding planner, first hand. As the planner you keep the client on task, help deal with vendors, create the timeline and play mediator, at times, with the families. Now the client and a professional planner, I need to juggle both roles, all while enjoying this special occasion in our family’s lives. A planner, no matter who you are, is a necessity to organize the events so you can have a successful wedding as well as allowing you to enjoy this once in a lifetime day.
