more of the usual
Dear East Side Bride,
I finally got up the balls and listened to you (and the other commenters) here. [Editor's Note: Pls command+click or ctrl+click or right click or middle click, or, you know, whatever works for you, TO OPEN LINK IN A NEW TAB]
Thanks to everyone. I think I was just insecure about feeling like I was being a bad guy. But I bad-guy-ed up and kicked her to the curb. (as nicely as I could, of course).
But now I have another problem: How the hell does one choose a wedding day of / month of planner??
We live about 4 hours from where we're having our wedding so it isn't feasible to meet ALL of them.
Do we choose by who has the nicest website? Who is the fastest email responder? Who has the best price?
None of these factors ensure a good planner.
Does it not REALLY matter how good they are because they're only "day-of" and as long as they're doing SOMETHING it's good enough?
What are the sort of questions you ask to narrow down the field of planners other than "are you available?" and "what's your price?" ?
The Lone Planner (now looking for a sidekick)
P.S. Can I just mention that I'm one of those crazy borderline OCD planning people that makes half a million ranked & prioritized To-Do lists complete with labelled diagrams of tablescapes so I MAY just end up going crazy on the day of and insisting I do most of the work anyways?
please please please: hire whoever makes you feel the most calm.
just reading your email sort of makes me start to hyperventilate.
