Okay, so since I’ve been wedding planning, I’ve thought, I really want to write a book for everyone BUT the bride. I am so aggravated with people dragging their feet to get their part done. (I’m not asking a lot from anyone!) I’m tired of having to make multiple phone calls, emails and texts to someone following up on things. I’m tired of asking someone a question and waiting days and/or weeks for the answer and often times having to call back and ask the same question.
If I wrote a book the #1 chapter in it would be GET BACK TO THE BRIDE when she needs something. Yes, we understand that you’re busy and have a life outside MY wedding, but I’m just as busy with the same things you are… only, I’m planning a wedding on top of it! I’m making 10 phone calls a day, driving all over town looking for the things I need, emailing, researching, etc. So when I have to remember to call you back because I am waiting for something, it really ticks me off.
An example. My brother is going to be an usher. He’s currently not working. I told him the outfit he’d need to wear and asked him if he had the money and if not, that I’d be happy to buy it for him if he’d come over and help us do landscaping. No reply.
My other brother, I asked him if he’d want a +1 or to come solo. He said he’d get back to me on that. Ummmm, invitations are going out today!
I asked my uncle if he knew anyone who could make pies. He said he’d love to do it, be happy to do it. I asked him about certain flavors and whether it’s feasible. No reply.
I have to ask everyone everything twice to four times. I don’t have time for that. So, that would be the number one thing in the book. Don’t make the bride chase you down when she asks you for your address, or where you rented the tuxes for your wedding, or whatever…
The problem… the only person who would be interested in reading a book about weddings…. the bride!
Whew, sorry I have had this on my mind since my Fiance and I got engaged and I finally had to get it out!
