Hire Those You Trust

When I started my business in 2004, I had never planned a wedding.  I had planned many events and knew I had the skills but there was a natural learning curve with weddings.

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...

Please support them as well!

Happy Independence Day!
