Ever heard a wedding horror story?
I bet you have.
The story where a hurricane/wildfire/flood destroyed the venue. Or the story of the caterer who bailed last minute. Or the story of a florist who just stopped returning emails and phone calls.
It might have been the story of the officiant who kept saying the wrong groom’s name. Or the awkward DJ who just didn’t know how to emcee.
Or maybe it was a story where the dress was damaged, the rings were stolen, the best man got drunk and passed out or the photographer lost all the photos in a freak accident.
Sadly, there are tons of stories about wedding disasters.
They happen more often than you would think.
Because there are so many moving pieces and so many people involved in a wedding.
So many things can go wrong at a wedding. And not just on the wedding day, but during the planning process as well.
And while some wedding disasters you can’t do anything about like when mother nature has her way, others you can.
Most wedding disasters are actually preventable.
Which is the great news! Because that means you can do something about it.
So, how do you prevent a wedding disaster?
Think of your wedding like a person.
Your wedding has different parts like how your body has fingers, toes, teeth, organs, etc…
And like your body, your wedding needs to be taken care of.
It needs things to not only survive, but thrive.
So, what happens if you don’t brush your teeth? Eat vegetables or exercise?
Your health or your wedding health declines. And at some point, you need a root canal, have a heart attack or gain 20 pounds.
And while you can improve your health after something happens, it’s a lot easier if you had just taken care of yourself beforehand.
It’s the reason why preventative care exists like annual check ups, flu shots and teeth cleanings.
Because it’s a lot easier, not to mention cheaper and less stressful, to prevent rather than fix a problem.
And all of that also applies to your wedding.
Planning a wedding always comes with potential problems.
Because planning a wedding is never 100% straightforward.
The elements and the process might be the same, but how you go about it for your situation is different.
And because you’re doing something for the first time and you’re not sure what you should be doing, there can be lots of stumbles along the way.
Not to mention that we’re also dealing with COVID which makes planning that much harder.
So, in order to prevent a wedding disaster, you need preventative care.
You need to take care of your wedding from the start so that you prevent problems.
So that you prevent a wedding disaster.
And you do that with the help of a wedding planner. A professional to help guide you through the process, to advise you along the way and to show you where your potential problems lie.
So that you can make decisions that help, not hurt your wedding.
Now the reality is that not everyone can afford a full time wedding planner. But, there are other ways to get help, like Passport to Joy.
But no matter how you do it, get yourself some preventative wedding care in the form of a wedding planner. It really will help prevent a disaster and make planning your wedding so much easier and happier.
And here’s the first easy step you can take…
Because no matter what kind of wedding you’re planning right now, having a wedding planner to guide you will make a huge difference in your life.
