Trying to control your wedding is like attempting to hold fine sand in your hands… The more you try to grip it, the more it slips away! Don’t get us wrong, it is completely normal, as a bride-to-be, to hope for perfect execution – but such things are done beautifully by experts, and in this case, it is the wedding planners and designers who take the cake. Whether it comes to being a brides ‘3 AM friend’ to making sure she has eaten before the pheras, here are 7 things every wedding planner wishes their brides should stop obsessing about and trust them in what they do best... turn your wedding dream into reality!
“Matching their clothes – be it with the décor or the latest season. Be yourself and choose something that works for you. So often the bride’s clothes define the colours of the functions and I strongly feel they should either be contrasting or complementing. After all, you don’t want to look like the tent, right? Also, I really wish some brides would just let go and stop micromanaging things! As a recent bride myself and having been on both sides, I cannot tell you how amazing it is to have a bride who has delegated work and trusts the people around her. Sometimes, brides get so caught up in every detail that they can hardly enjoy their own wedding!”

“As an international planner, I tell my brides to not stress/ obsess over overzealous relatives or guests who give you grief about your destination wedding (i.e, oh why did you pick X hotel or couldn't you have chosen other dates). Also, brides should not always worry about the budget and instead, should make a wish list for the planner. It's our job as your planner to make as many of your wishes come true within your budget.”

“We never get weekends off as all events and wedding meetings are on those days. Hence, I wished brides didn’t call and message us in the middle of the night out of impulse, just because they saw something cute on Pinterest! It's a one time thing for them, but we do this everyday. I know this sounds like a rant but it's very very true. Being available 24/7 is just not fair to us!”
