My one regret from my wedding? Not hiring a wedding planner. I think every woman has spent years envisioning her wedding day but what she hasn’t envisioned is all the work that goes into making each one of her seemingly tiny, very particular dreams come true. Weddings are STRESSFUL. I cannot reiterate that enough. Stress equals cranky brides which turn into bridezillas and no one wants to deal with that. Do yourself a favor…as soon as you pick up that first bridal magazine, hire an event planner!!! They’re there to make the process easy for you so that you can eventually be one of those brides who looks back on the wedding planning process and says, “That was easy.” Do you want to know what I say to people when asked about planning my wedding? I wish I would have eloped. Let me say this again: a wedding planner makes all the difference in the world! They are magical people who can handle stress and family drama and last minute changes and wardrobe malfunctions and…you get the picture. Here’s my list of the top event planners in Southern Oregon…they might otherwise be known as the fairy godmothers (or fathers!) of the Rogue Valley.
