The Wrong Kind of Wedding Planner...

I was able to relax over this nice, long, three day Memorial Day weekend - a rare thing in this industry.  I was finally able to catch up on some shows that have been piling up on the Tivo.  I know, I know... what a waste of a weekend, right?!  So anyway, I was watching the season finale of Ghost Whisperer and much to my dismay, there it was... the "stereotypical" wedding planner. 

So for those of you who don't watch the show, let's back up.  Melinda was married to Jim.  Jim was shot and killed, but instead of crossing over, his spirit jumped into the body of another guy who died, Sam.  So now Jim is Sam and for most of the season, Jim had no memory of his old life.  And then, poof, after Sam has a near death experience, Sam thinks he is Jim again, but yet looks like Sam.  So now that Sam, er Jim, remembers Melinda and their love for each other, they are getting married again because Jim looks like Sam.  Confused yet?

Now to the point I was trying to make... Melinda's mother hires her a wedding planner as a gift.  Great gesture, except that this guy - who by the way calls himself the ambassador of love - shows up and the first thing he says is "don't worry about a thing, it's my wedding now".  Yikes!  What the heck is that all about??  So if there are any people out there who think that is what a wedding planner is all about, let me set the record straight.

If you meet any wedding planner - or any vendor for that matter - who wants to take over your wedding, run - do not walk - away as fast as you can!  I've been in this business over twelve years and I would never dream of taking over.  From the initial consultation, I make it very clear that the couple makes all of the decisions themselves, I am there to offer guidance and advice based on my experience and expertise.  I assist with making my clients' dream come true because it is their wedding day - not mine!

Unfortunately television loves to put a spin on things, that's after all what makes people tune in.  I just wish someone would make these shows a little more realistic.  So if there are any TV execs out there listening... I'm available for a consultation!
