So what did I do? I interviewed many dozen vendors, figured out who I could trust, then I hired those people and let them do their jobs.
Fortunately, that philosophy has always worked out well for all. There are occasionally times I have to micromanage vendors, often when I'm hired for day of coordination and haven't worked with the vendors hired by the client. Or if I'm working in a new area of the state or region, I encounter new faces.
But the reality is that I am a professional wedding planner, not a professional caterer, baker, photographer or stationer. And I don't pretend to be any of those things. I know the right questions to ask and I know what to look for. But most importantly, I know who I trust.
And that is the philosophy I'm relying on this week since my wedding is tomorrow and I'm not in charge. We hired a day of coordinator to make sure our vision is executed, and we hired some of our favorite vendors. I hope you check out their work and we'll post up a few photos after the big day.
These folks are the reason I'm relaxing right now, with the comfort that we're in good hands. These are the people I thank because they make me look good...
