I don’t know that I want a planner, I just don’t want to plan it myself.

FI’s got me calling a venue tomorrow, Fingers crosseed they have my date… but I don’t expect them to.

@Reign14:  I keep getting asked why I’m having it in a central location, it’s soo far away, blah blah blah.

I really want to rip off the bandaid and say “so when people like you b*tch about it being 3 hours away (in the middle of both families), I can tell you that FI’s family has to travel the same amount, and WE will have to travel at least FIVE hours to get there. So if anyone should be whining, it’s ME!”

But I am too nice…  Now I really hope this venue is available.  It’s lovely.

I’m not looking forward to dress shopping at all.

I find that it helps planning everything in stages. As you see things get marked off your check list it doesn’t seem so imposing or as stressful.

If you can’t afford to hire a planner you can hire a DOC instead. We have booked one and I can’t wait for her to take over 6 weeks before our wedding.

I like the planning, only wish I would have done a BBB check on all the vendors since one of mine has an F.. 🙁

My advice, though biased considering I’m a wedding planner, is to hire a planner.  Goal as wedding planner = make it fun and easy for you!  I’ve heard people say they cannot afford a planner, but a good planner can actually save you costly mistakes and even get discounts based on their knowledge of the marketplace and connections.  Not sure if any of you are in California… but I’m a wedding planner in the Bay Area.  I’ve also lived in Central and Southern Cali, so can help there as well. 


Happy Planning Ladies!

I think some people love it or hate it. Regardless, I think it becomes overwhelming for everyone. A wedding planner is the way to go if you can afford it!
