I know how you feel. Your wedding cards and invitations go out every year, and you’re still stressing when the invitations aren’t received. There’s no question though, they really do matter. In fact, they’re one of the biggest stressors for most wedding coordinators. How do you get them to send them? How do you get them to lock them when it’s over? These are really the keys to your success.
This is the one part of the wedding coordination process that theres no doubt you have a different opinion on than me, but it is a fact. I am a big believer that the less the better because theyre not going to put up with your shit anymore. It really does suck that theres no way to know for sure when youre getting married.
The wedding is the most stressful moment of the entire wedding process. The wedding coordinator is the person who has to take the bride and groom to a photographer, pay the photographer, arrange the cake at the church, and do everything (including the guest list) for everyone. Then when the wedding is over, they have to get the bride and groom to hand over their belongings and everything to the wedding coordinator.
One of the things I love about my job is that it gives me the opportunity to be in the wedding process as I’m getting married, so I’ve been able to plan the wedding for years. But when you start to think about it, you realize that to plan your wedding, you’re going to have to work with a lot of moving parts.
There are a lot of moving parts to it. So many! You have to get the invitations printed, you have to find the venue, you have to find the dress, all of these things are going to be important to your life. But you have to take some time to figure out how to do it all, and Im glad I got the chance to do it.
Ive actually been planning my wedding for years. I’ve created a number of different sets of dress codes for my bridesmaids and groomsmen, a number of “dress code” books, and even put together a “dress code” for my own wedding. But I really like the idea of having the wedding be a big event that includes a number of people, just like my wedding.
Like many brides-to-be, Ive decided that the event has to be a big event, so Ive created a number of boxes, one for each person who’s getting married. The boxes are a little like a wedding invitation, but with the addition of lockable drawers that lock in the contents.
The drawers are the key, which Ive used to lock and unlock the boxes. But Ive also put some locks in the boxes too, to help keep people from opening the drawers. That way if you do want to open a drawer, you can just unlock the lock to make sure you aren’t messing something up. It seems pretty neat. And as for the fact that Ive put a lock in the boxes, I know one day I will have a box that is locked.
This one is a bit trickier than the last one. Ive removed the lockable drawers from the boxes, and I still want to keep the lock on the box. But the drawers aren’t locking in the box. Ive also removed the lock from the box that is holding the lockable drawers. Its now locked in the drawer, which means I can remove the lock without opening up the box.
I guess it all boils down to the fact that for people who want to have a locked box that is locked, I would suggest not doing it. If you don’t want someone to open the box, you don’t want them to open the box.
