Welcome Y’all!

Hello & welcome. We are sooooooo happy that you came to visit us! We know that you’re probably wondering what it is that wedding planners do (duh! that’s why you’re here right?). With that being said, sit back, relax and let us walk you through it!
 
Wedding Planners are a vital part of your wedding day. Are we saying that you absolutely have to have one to have a successful wedding? Of course not. However, if you want to have a very stress free wedding, we highly recommend that you hire one (us we hope!). Wedding planners are there to ensure that you are getting the best bang for your buck. To explain things that you don’t quite understand. To keep you on track as far as budget and time goes. And to just be there for you during this entire process! We are more than just your planner, we are friends! 
 
BUT…. before we can help you, please take a look at these simple steps we have provided for you. Some times as a planner, it involves us being the bearer of bad news. However, if you read these important steps, you’re saving us that awful task of telling you things that you don’t want to hear. 
 

Step 1: Research. I can’t stress that enough. Before you start the “planning” process, be sure to research the average cost of a wedding in your area.

Step 2: Tell us about you. I mean, everything… really… even your shoe size (kidding!) But seriously, tell us about your dream wedding. The more you give us, the more we can understand what’s going on in your mind! Be exact. Only you know what your heart desires.

Step 3: Be realistic. If you live in Oklahoma and you’re wanting an Elephant for your wedding…. be prepared to either be let down or make sure you’ve got Daddy Warbucks on speed dial.

Step 4: BREATHE! Getting married is supposed to be the happiest day of your life! We know it can be stressful, but if we aren’t stressing, you shouldn’t be either!

Step 5: Be patient. Honestly! Rome wasn’t built in a day… and a wedding doesn’t happen overnight.

Step 6: Enjoy the little things. Turn the planning process into fun date nights! When the DJ wants to know your music list, don’t fret (no pun intended)! Grab a bottle of wine, sit out back on a nice fall evening and enjoy your walk down  memory lane.

Step 7: Love thy neighbor. Planning a wedding brings out all kinds of emotions in you AND your family. With that being said, be the bigger person and let it roll right off your back. This is when wedding etiquette comes in to play all the way! (no elbows on the table dear…)

Step 8: Cry. Yes, you read that correctly… CRY. Every girl needs to cry a little. And although you have hired a wedding planner (Us we hope!) there will still be moments in the planning process where you just hit a wall and you’re over it. I am giving you permission to cry.

Those are just a few tips that we can give you when it comes to planning your special day. Planning a wedding isn’t an easy task. If it was, you obviously wouldn’t be here. Let Shay Lynne Weddings take care  of all of the stressful details for you!
