In the past few weeks I have seen some of my friends make some decisions and fall into poor planning during their journey down the aisle. While I was discussing these unimaginable scenarios with Mr. AZ I simultaneously went through shock, sympathy and utter confusion. I couldn't imagine what I would do if I was the bride in any of these, and I found most of them helpful- each made me stop and think. I think I learned something from each and that's why I'm sharing it with you, my readers. Most of the time it feels like bad planning but sometimes it looks like clear, possibly subconscious, sabotage.
Scenario 1: Waiting until 3 months before the wedding to start thinking about invitations for a wedding with 300 people on the guest list.
Liz at Blush Design Studio a good 8 months in advance. Granted we did not finalize them until 5 months in advance but it never felt rushed or hurried, which I really appreciate.
Scenario #2: Being wish-washy on the bridesmaid's dresses and letting your MOH change your entire wedding color palette.
Scenario #3: Bride returns wedding gown 26 days before the wedding.
Have you been a victim of poor planning? Have you seen any examples of subconscious sabotage from your friends who are getting married? Does seeing other weddings around you make you want, nay crave being a Wedding Planner so that this doesn't happen to other brides, or so that you can help them make the best out of their situation?
