When wedding planners get engaged, do the tables turn? Do they try to plan their own weddings, or follow their own advice and hire another planner to manage the event for them?
For the most part, they take their own advice. They want the experience of having a professional handle the research and planning details, manage the vendors and the budget. But, as one event planner noted in her blog, as a rule they have “serious control issues.” They really love the challenge of being in charge of the controlled chaos of events. So the planner they pick has to be incredibly patient and willing to cede more control to the bride than they may otherwise. It becomes more of a collaboration than either event planner is used to.
