Broken Tiara

It could happen to anyone:
a broken tiara & other little mishaps on a Wedding Day

Often I am asked what I do on a wedding day as the wedding planner. I tick off the usual stuff: facilitate the wedding day schedule; coordinate the Bride, Groom, Bridal Party & vendors; cue events; set-up & breakdown ceremony & reception items; solve unexpected surprises (aka problems); calm nerves & relieve stress; etc, etc.

Today, as I reflect back on this weekend's wedding, it strikes me that the "etc, etc" may be the most important part of my job. It's the little things we do that really matter. Provide the Bride with a snack when lunch hasn't arrived yet. Fix the broken tiara. Pin the boutonnieres on the Groom & Groomsmen. Find missing family members for group photos. Pin bridesmaid dresses.
Let the unity candle lighters use our lighter because nobody brought one.

All this happened before the ceremony started.

We continued to hop in wherever & whenever needed until the Reception was said & done. Could everything have been done without us? Yes, of course. However, the Bride would have been stressed. And whatever poor soul, probably a Bridesmaid or Mother of the Bride, was stuck doing these tasks wouldn't have enjoyed the wedding as much. On the other hand, we are happy to take care of everything so everyone can be a carefree guest at the wedding. It's truly a joy & honor for us.

There's a little glimpse into the life of a wedding planner!
