Picking out the perfect wedding planner is daunting. Some are hefty three-ring binders while some are smaller, almost pocket sized. For my wedding, I went with a soft back planner complete with comparison charts for florists, bakers, venues, etc. Everything was perfectly planned out within the confines of my planner.
By the time my wedding day arrived, the plastic spine was broken and the brochure holding pockets had ripped from being stuffed full. On my wedding day, I woke up with a migraine, my hair dresser was late, and my wedding dress broke just minutes before walking down the aisle. Even with all those mishaps, which by the way wasn’t covered in my planner, I had an absolutely great day.
The next morning, I woke up beside my brand new husband. And I realized that the planner couldn’t help me anymore. Sure there was a chapter on writing thank you notes, but not on how to successfully live with another human being. Slight panic set in when I realized that my worn out planner was just that…worn out.
