Planning my own wedding has led me to fully understand the value of hiring a wedding planner. I can’t say I expected it to be so much work. One of the reasons for all the work is that our wedding is also happening on the same day, and in nearly the same location, as a major city festival which attracts thousands of people and will totally be clogging up the area. It did not even occur to me to google the wedding date before booking everything to see what might be a competing interest. We also found out that our wedding officiant has booked another wedding immediately after ours, to the point where if our wedding runs late, we are now affecting someone else’s wedding. I don’t even know what we’re paying our officiant for – the whole wedding officiant business in Ontario is a complete and total racket. Other things I never thought I would think about – how much do people drink, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic? Can I just assume everyone drinks as much as I do? Its going to be a hot day, so we’re assuming people will drink more. But what will people want to drink – pop, juice, water, beer, wine…so many options! Where do you draw the line and just shove whatever you want down people’s throats. You’re drinking juice because I say so! I don’t think that works… I fear I am officially on the verge of becoming groomzilla. I’m one more request away from going Hulk on someone, ripping off my shirt and running down the street yelling “Hulk Angry!”.
