Picture this; your hair is perfectly pinned into a soft side swept up-do, with carefully placed tendrils falling from the sides to frame your face. Your face is aglow from the freshly airbrushed make-up highlighted by the coppertone blush applied ever so delicately to the apples of your cheeks. Your white Benjamin Adams platform crystal lined peep-toe shoes have just been slipped on to your size 7.5 feet. You have just been laced into your corseted, strapless A-line gown with a sweetheart neckline in diamond white with pewter accents. Your 52” long veil has just been pinned into your up-do slightly behind the crystal tiara on loan from your favorite aunt who wore it in her wedding 20 years ago.
Your mom has just handed you your hand-tied bouquet of pink and white calla lilies, roses and peonies, bound with a ribbon accented with sparkling colored crystal stones. Your best friend steps over and dabs the single tear slowly trickling down your right check to prevent a tear stained face. Your 2nd cousin who is participating in your wedding is repeating a message from an earlier call from your husband-to-be… “tell her I love her and can’t wait to be her husband”. Your mom, who stepped away to dry her tears returns and pulls the blusher down over your face and whispers, ” it’s time baby girl”. Nothing can ruin this moment for you.
It may seem small in size, but the smallest details often get overlooked and those are usually the details that make the biggest impact. This is when/why hiring a professional is essential in helping you keep it all together. As an event planner, my goal is to ensure that your day is as low maintenance for you as it is for your family and guests. JunePlumm Events takes care of A Little Bit A’ This and a little bit a that from beginning to end. Why open yourself up to being barraged by questions like; who is paying the caterer, where are the toasting flutes, Uncle John has had one too many drinks, how much money are we spending, where are my programs, is it hot in here, when should the DJ play the first dance song, and the list goes on and on and on.
So, my point… If you are super duper organized and do not mind being bombarded with questions, inquiries, tasks, to do’s, how to’s, where to’s, when to’s, from the moment you get engaged to the moment you return that last rental item, then go ahead and DIY. If the latter does not appeal to you in the least, then I would suggest you hire a professional. Let us deal with the drama.
