Lovely Things From Lovely Friends

Diary of a Wedding Planner

As a wedding planner, I’m very lucky to be able to meet and work alongside some very lovely people here in wedding-land. When you work from home, as I do, it can sometimes become rather lonely day to day, compared to working in a busy office with lots of colleagues who don’t mind taking the odd five minutes out of their day for a quick chat while making a cuppa. So when, like me,  you’re lucky enough to meet lovely people in the industry through the weddings you end up working on together, who quite often work from home or on their own as well, it’s quite common to find that friendships quickly form.

This week I received a lovely little late birthday present from one said friend out there in the world of Welsh weddings – the rather marvellous Kelly White of White Crafts, and what a fab gift it is too! Because, when you get to know other suppliers/colleagues/ friends in the wedding industry, you become very appreciative of what those other suppliers/ colleagues/ friends actually do in the wedding industry too! Working together means you come to understand the different trials and tribulations that planning a wedding can bring with it, and how important each person is in making that big day so special. You also come to realise the physical differences in your job… which is probably why Kelly sent me this fabulous thing:

Now, technically this marvellous foam pad is meant for when your down on your knees doing a spot of gardening. However, I often find myself down on my knees at weddings: tidying up table linen, placing petals down the edges of aisles, helping brides with wedding dresses, polishing shoes, and getting on with other general coordination tasks, and my knees sometimes get a little bit sore! So I shall be digging out my tippex and pens and altering this very funny yet very practical little gift to read ‘Keep Calm and Carry On Wedding!’ in preparation for when I’m next down on my knees at a wedding.
