Take this Advice
In my own professional career, I am an event coordinator at a private country club where I sell the events (and memberships), plan the event with the client and I am there to oversee the event through. Advice that I often give to the brides and grooms as well as my friends who are/have been engaged is to not get caught up on the little things. As someone who has been involved in hundreds of events in one way or another, I swore to myself when I first got engaged that less is more and that I would keep things simple and not over complicate the process (this statement is part of the reason we decided to host our wedding over 2,000 miles away on a beach! First of all, how could it get anymore beautiful than that? And second, the closer I am, the more involvement I would have – again this is also coming from an event coordinator as well as a control freak, how could I help myself!?). The last piece of information that was very important to me and that I try to offer as advice to the brides and grooms I work with is to take time during the reception to enjoy each other and their dinner! I see so many brides and grooms who don’t take a bite of their meal because they are so busy trying to make their rounds from table to table and their feedback is that the whole evening was a complete whirlwind. This became another deciding factor for my fiancé and I to take the leap and do something different like travel to a Caribbean
island with an intimate group of family and friends where we would be able to raise our glass once and share our love, admiration and gratitude for those who are there celebrating with us and remembrance for those who couldn’t make it…and then get on to the party! ~ Eirika Edwardsen/Bride
