It has been a while since I last did a wedding. I love weddings! Everyone who has been reading Marriage and Beyond knows that it is one of the things that I am really passionate about. I still have my box full of records of everything about weddings, my suppliers for flowers, wedding invitations, beauty experts and what not.
xI remember this one time a couple of months back, I was deep in thought if I were to stash them all away altogether. It just occurred to me that maybe the numbers that I have of my suppliers have changed contact numbers and for someone who is not very fond of storing things that are not of use anymore, I considered throwing it all away for a time. But then again, I changed my mind. There just might be someone I know who would need an access to cheap wedding invitations, in the future. Besides, it is not uncommon to find a bride on a budget these days.
Last year alone, I turned down at least four big wedding events. As much as I love to get back to coordinating weddings, time does not permit me do it anymore. Instead, I recommend the couples to other wedding planners and consultants that I know who I think is best qualified to do the job. Â If you happen to beÂ planning for the big day, it might interest you to go check the Bride and Groom Direct website. They are currently offering 5% discount. You also get the chance to win Â£3,000. I love that it is a one stop wedding supplier website. They even carry all those must have wedding accessories that are rather expensive when you get them from a regular store.
I’m sure I will get back to working on my wedding planning juices for the right projects. For now I really cannot commit other than helping out with suppliers and some consultations. The full coordinating package is at a halt for the time being and picking only a few weddings here and there which are mostly of friends and loved ones. There is something about weddings that even if I am a little too occupied in its overall dynamics, I never fail to see and gasp over God’s plan for marriage and its overall beauty.
