I Should Have Hired A Planner

When I planned my own wedding, everyone had advice. The most common of which was not to get caught up in the details because no one would notice them anyway. I thought, that’s all well and good if you hire a professional planner, but I wanted to take it on myself. It's been almost five years since our wedding and the details are the sweet things I remember: my friend who used his handmade paper napkin ring as a boutonniere; the family members who took home the table number of their favorite Pink Floyd album (My husband is a huge fan, so the table numbers corresponded with each album chronologically). I smile every time I remember these details.

Looking back, there were plenty of reasons for me to have hired an event planner instead of trying to do it all on my own. Without an event planner, I didn't know... what I didn't even know: the best venues for the rehearsal dinner, the ceremony, the reception, the cake, the catering. I spent hours upon hours researching reviews and counting stars when I could have been letting someone else do that work. According to the Huffington Post, brides spend an average of 10-25 hours per week planning their wedding.

I was relentless. I researched, I questioned and I researched some more. I needed help focusing my vision. By our wedding day, I was spent. Everyone had questions: where, when, how and again; hadn't I already handled that? And the answer was yes, yes I had. I couldn't be in two places at once, though! I loved all the little crafty DIY things I did for our wedding. The fact is, I probably would have remembered more if I had just been less stubborn and hired someone else to handle the details
