    Nope! Hell, I don’t even like planning my own – a great big PITA IMO.

    @MrsDiddles:  are they paying?!? For real, if its not like my sister or my best friend I feel like becoming an unpaid wedding planner for someone would lead to becoming a slave. They would expect you to always be there whenever they need it and it might cause a lot of problems. I would tell them you could give them some tips, but actually planning it, no.

    Not for a million dollars.

    I’d rather clean their toilets.

    Honestly, only if they did NOT pay me.  If they paid me I’d feel horrible if something got messed up.  If they didn’t pay me, It’d be more of a favor and I wouldn’t feel AS bad.

    I didn’t vote because I wouldn’t.  I suck at girl stuff lol.  If I alone planned my wedding, it would have paled to what it was with my friend’s valuable help. And I like “planning” things lol.

    It worked out great, she was unemployed and I was getting married.  Not great to be unemployed but she’s is a real people person (NEEDS interaction/to be involved) and great at girl stuff so reveled in having something fun to distract her… where as I was like “now I gotta decide on X??? …X is a thing?”.  She pretty much baby stepped me through making it awesome, at one point I was like “why don’t you just email me a list”, and she goes “because your head would explode, I’m trying to dole this out in bits”, and I said “you’re probably right”.  I made all final decisions, but she was there giving input and telling me what I needed to think about/do/etc.  I could easily see her being a wedding planner and making all the arrangements, getting input from the couple, and making many fabulous days.

    People like me need people like her, and probably you!  Unless someone is super high maintenance and expects to be served/have someone do things for them, if they ask for your help they probably really want (need) it… and should pay for it if possible!  I don’t even know the parts that weren’t perfect… and I could care less lol, but I do know she made it better than I would have on my own with every other resource I had!  I have no idea what pay is fair tho some is warranted!  My friend refused any, so I told her to take this $100 bill or I’d stash it in her house somewhere :D, and I still feel that was just a token payment.

    I would absolutely not plan anyone else’s wedding! Weddings are personal, a lot of personal taste and prefernces go into weddings. To some people, every small detail matters. Therefore, I would never ever in a million years plan anyone else’s wedding

    I’ve done it more than once and haven’t even thought about my own yet. My Fiance won’t propose with all the people saying they have been together for more than 2 years. lol
