10 Marcyism On Wedding Planning

WEDDING PLANNER EXTRAORDINAIRE MARCY BLUM SHARES WITH OUR RACHEL LEONARD HER TOP 10 TIPS ON WEDDING PLANNING, IN WHICH WE'VE LOVINGLY NAMED HER '10 MARCYISMS ON WEDDING PLANNING.'

1) IF YOU FOCUS SOLELY ON DESIGN AND NOT THE EXPERIENCE OF THE WEDDING, IT’S LIKE BRINGING CHANNING TATUM OR ANGELINA JOLIE HOME AND THEY JUST LIE THERE.

2) IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A CASH BAR FOR YOUR WEDDING, WHY NOT GIVE GUESTS A BILL FOR THE WHOLE DINNER?

3) WEDDINGS ARE COMPLEX AND EVOLVING -ONE HAS TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO RE-SET IF THINGS CHANGE AT THE LAST MOMENT.  FOR EXAMPLE, IF THE BAND HAS FINALLY GOTTEN ALL THE GUESTS ON THE DANCE FLOOR, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE GUTS TO DELAY THE NEXT COURSE EVEN THOUGH IT WAS PLANNED TO BE SERVED AT 8:42PM.

4) HANGING ESCORT CARDS WHERE ONE HAS TO GET ON A LADDER TO CUT THEM DOWN IS JUST DUMB.

5) THERE ARE SO MANY EVENT PLANNERS NOW, MY DRY CLEANER’S SHOP SIGN READS “DRY CLEANING/SPECIAL EVENTS."

6) THE MOST ANNOYING PEOPLE IN THE WORLD ARE THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY DON’T KNOW.

7) WOW, EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THIS ENTIRE PROFESSION IS A “CELEBRITY” WEDDING PLANNER-WHO PLANS THE WEDDINGS FOR OTHER PEOPLE?

8 MAKE SURE THE EXIT OF THE WEDDING LOOKS AS PRETTY AS THE ENTRANCE, I.E. DON’T HAVE GUESTS EXIT THROUGH THE EMPTY CEREMONY AREA.

9) IF YOUR FRIENDS WANT TO VOLUNTEER WITH DIY PROJECTS, THEY SHOULD ASSIST IN THE COATROOM WHERE YOU WILL NEED THE MOST HELP.

10) I LOVE A GOOD AFTER-PARTY BUT IF YOU ARE ALWAYS IN BED ASLEEP BY 10PM, ITS PROBABLY NOT THE BEST IDEA.
