Well, we have all heard of the term Bridezilla, right? I mean, they even made a TV show about them. Have you ever wondered, what exactly a bridezilla is and why or how one lovely bride received such a negative, scary name? You know what it is… a bride ‘or couple’ that has not hired a wedding planner and tried to do it all themselves. In turn, sounding like a bossy britch and is slyly called a bridezilla when her back is turned.

Don’t let that be you!!! Hire a wedding planner or at least a ‘day of coordinator’ and save yourself a headache as well as the horrible impression you are bound to make on your new in-laws. Trust us, first impressions are hard to shake off and being labeled a ‘bridezilla’ will haunt you until your kids get married (then you will become that ‘crazy mother-in-law’.) Pay it forward and make sure you keep the circle of coordinators and wedding planners going!

Fact: there is no way a bride can ‘nicely’ wrangle family, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and the photographer for pictures when everyone’s been drinking and no one is paying attention; all while, giving directions to guests to proceed to the cocktail hour and communicating to the caterer that the reception time is going to be pushed up because the 45 minute ceremony you accounted for, only took 12 minutes. Question: How does one accomplish such a task? How does one be in 4 places at one time, with a smile on their face and completing each fun-filled stage of their wedding day? Answer: They can’t! Don’t try and do it. Don’t put yourself through that misery. Better yet, don’t do that to your guests.

You don’t want to work on your special day, nor do people that came to celebrate your nuptials want to be berated and treated with hostility. Besides being afraid of becoming the inevitable bossy bride aka ‘bridezilla’ there are a 5 more reasons you should hire a wedding planner or day of coordinator!

Who has time to plan a wedding with a full-time job? Answer: a wedding planner! It is their job!
A wedding planner can ensure you are hiring vendors that can be trusted!
Wedding planners, can also assist with helpful discounts and packages and most importantly stay in budget!
A wedding planner can help navigate those tricky family dynamics that you want to avoid!
You should be enjoying every minute of your special day, let a wedding planner worry about the rest!

At the end of your special day, you want to be remembered as the blushing bride and not the crazy lady who buckled and cried. A wedding planner or day of coordinator is the perfect solution to ease any stress that may or may not be headed your way. When you feel comfortable and in safe hands, you will thank yourself later. Also, your family and friends will be able to enjoy the celebration of your love, because they too will not be working. Remember this day is to only happen once in a lifetime and it is important to make the best of it, hire a professional and save ‘bridezilla’ for a fun halloween costume!
