This is professionally personal. A lot of times we hear bad news and it sucks, but when we hear bad news that happens to someone we know it hits home. Very close to home. A close friend of mine, who I’ll call James, has has been in my life forever. We have known each other since sandbox days. After patiently dating and finding the love of his life, he found “the one” - we’ll call her Lisa. The day he proposed he took the love of his life to a romantic dinner on the water. With his nerves getting the best of him, James proposed before the dinner ever arrived. She had no idea it was coming, but of course she said yes! The night ended with them watching the sunset as Lisa began planning the wedding day in her head.
So the process was immediately underway:
1.) Pick a venue
2.) Choose a wedding planner
3.) Choose a wedding photographer
In that order.
After an in-person meeting with the photographer, they were sold. They had found their perfect fit. This company had a nice wedding album and a professional demeanor about them, which is why James not only chose them but he also booked them for their most expensive package.
When the wedding day came, “getting ready” photos were taking place. The guys were sharp, happy and posing with their pants raised up showing off their designed socks. Once the guys were done with photos, the main photographer asked everyone to head down to the lobby. Unfortunately everyone walked into an uncomfortable situation. The main photographer was shouting his dislikes about the bridesmaids right before the first look. Which I believe is bad timing to have that type of conversation. Emotions were in the air and the connection felt lost. This company became impatient, rude and surprisingly unprofessional. Thank God the rest of the wedding went well.
James and Lisa began to worry about their photos so they contacted the photographer on multiple occasions. He answered and promised them a new date each time. It took close to a year for them to receive their pictures with just “some” of the photos delivered in hopes they wouldn’t notice.
I began writing this guide with all my heart.
It’s not perfectionism that rules the day or a type A personality that makes a person exceptional at what they do. It is caring. Caring that everyone is served, caring that each need is met in as best way it can be. Caring that things are perfect not for the sake of one’s self or image, but for the sake of another. When choosing your vendors consider their personal virtues beyond surface attributes. There you have it, my two cents ✌️💗#bridesmaids#bridesmaidbouquet
