When it comes to your wedding day you obviously want everything to go perfectly. Not everyone chooses to use a wedding planner on their special day and this is of course entirely up to you.
Some minor things you might forget without the help of a wedding planner might be: Signage at the ceremony, handing out little bags of confetti to the guests or forgetting to leave a menu card on each of the dining tables.
We chose not to use a wedding planner for our wedding in Spain, which led to a slightly more eventful beginning to our wedding for our guests…
Picture the scene: a beautiful, sprawling farmhouse set amongst the wild pine forests in the hills of Catalonia, a winding mountain track leading up to the house, all the guests are in their finery and on a coach making their way to the venue and are excited to arrive. Little do they know, however, that the coach driver has not been informed of the large car park at the end of the track where he can turn his large coach around. Upon entry to the driveway the coach driver starts reversing his coach backwards down the winding track until, to the shouts and protests of the guests, everyone decides it’s far too dangerous on the coach, demand to be let off and proceed to hike, fancy dresses, heels and all, down a 2 kilometre-long dirt path.
Yes, imagining my friends and family “hoofing it” through the dusty forest that day in August with temperatures nearing 30 degrees is still an image which makes me shudder years after my eventful wedding day!
Other fun parts of the day which went slightly awry included losing the table plan just an hour before guests arrived and the theme song for my walking down the aisle being far too quiet, I mean who can listen to Jimi Hendrix quietly?! The fact that no space had been left in the set-up of the dining tables to allow for dancing (one of my very favourite things) and that we all had to drag tables and chairs off to the sides of the dancefloor now only slightly niggles in my memory!
Luckily since then I have been able to accept that these little hiccoughs were a result of taking on a bit too much for myself and leaving too much until the last minute. I also sometimes think, “Hey, it was spontaneous and rustic”- just like my husband and I!
Honestly though, with the joy of hindsight, I do wish we had used a Wedding Planner. If only to have someone who shared in the sheer amount of time and attention needed to be spent on all those specific details.
