Lead with LOVE when planning your weddingMay 25, 2017
When I think about my job as a wedding planner, I am always drawn to E.E Cummings incredible quote:
“Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backwards.”
Now I know that you are wondering where in the hell I am going with this and how I am going to turn this into a point. Here’s how:
Life, work, friendship, family and trust all share one important trait: LOVE. You make almost every choice in life based on LOVE. Let me use buying a house as an example. As much as you lead with financials, sensible decisions that you believe hold you close to being the best adult you can be, the ultimate decider comes from that feeling you have when you see the house- how it made you feel the moment we walked in. I believe that every decision in life is ultimately a gut decision. The heart plays a role in every decision you make in life.
Therefore, why should it be any different when it comes to your wedding. Choosing your wedding planner is a vital and important decision. You are deciding to trust someone with your most special day- this decision can not be made lightly.
My advice is to lead with LOVE. Your adult side has already researched your planner, checked them out on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and have investigated their reviews and past clients, you know if they are good or not. Now comes the most important part; how do you feel when you meet them? Do you feel happy; do you gel as people? If the answer is yes, and your heart feels happy and safe, trust it. You need to feel close to your wedding planner.
My goal is to ensure that my clients feel safe, trust me and that LOVE leads our decisions. I hope to do that for all of you and I LOVE getting to know you all and share in your wedding day- it is what makes my job so awesome!
