For the past few years I’ve had a fixation on becoming a wedding planner. I’m forever watching wedding related programmes, reading the mags and have been to a couple of wedding fayres too just to see what all the fuss is about and I truly love everything idyllic and fantasy around someones “dream day”.
However, recently I’ve faced people that have told me how stressful the industry is and that I wouldn’t be able to deal with it (not that they themselves have ever worked in it!). This was something I already knew and was prepared to deal with. This whole time I’d been confident that I would be able to deal with the stresses and strains effectively but hearing this negativity all the time has started to make me doubt myself.
So - I’ve started reading ‘Confessions of a Wedding Planner’ by Tamryn Kirby as I’m hoping this will give me a better insight into whether the wedding planning industry really is the right one for me!
So far she has discussed her personal background, in particular her own wedding and when she begins to describe the other weddings she was involved in. I seem to have the same thoughts in the back of my mind - “why was that not thought of before/surely that minor detail should have been addressed way before the big day”. I’m guessing these are good indicators that I do have the attention to detail aspect already inside me - I’m just hoping this book develops into more detail on how to cope with disaster weddings!
