Why You Need To Be the CEO Of Your Wedding
Isn't it just the worst when you see a bride who is so stressed out she can barely even function by the time her wedding day comes along? She's been going crazy for the last year trying to get everything in order and hasn't slept right for the past six months. I get it. It's so easy to get wrapped up in all of the planning for your wedding, because you want your wedding day to go perfectly. It's extremely important that it does, but there is a way to have everything go right without losing sleep or even worse friends throughout the process. With the Holiday weekend coming up, I'm going to keep it short and sweet. But, there is one key that overshadows all of the other things you need to do to make sure that everything goes smoothly while being stress free. That key is to have a team!
In business, it's imperative that you have a team. You don't run a business with one person doing all of the work. You have a CEO who heads up all of the company relationships with investors and maintains the overall trajectory of the company. You have a CFO who make sure that everything is in line financially. Those are only a couple of the key players that make the world go around in a business, but without the division of responsibility the place would burn to the ground.
The same is true with your wedding day. If you are in charge of coordinating the venue, the music, the food, the outfits, the seating chart, the wedding favors, the photographer, and the million other things that have to get done before the big day, it will not be a process upon which you look back with fond memories. You will look back remembering how stressed and how tired you were while you were planning.
A better strategy for this whole thing is to divide the responsibility. That doesn't mean you don't oversee it or have input on everything. Remember, in a business there is a CEO. They have a say in everything that happens, but they have others complete the work. Have someone else take care of arranging the caterers. Have someone else coordinate the photographers and the DJ. Have your annoying little sister come up with a seating charts so that Aunt Mary and Aunt June aren't sitting by each other fighting about who makes a better sweet potato casserole. BE THE CEO OF YOUR WEDDING.
Have a plan. Make sure that eveything is going according to plan. But give everyone some responsibility so that you aren't running around like a chicken with your head cut off for an entire year before the wedding!
Now, before I go I want to thank you all for such a great 2018. I truly appreciate all of your that read my blog, enjoy my photos, and give me your support. You are all the reasons that I get to do what I do for a living and I'm so excited to see what 2019 has in store.
