Your eyes are red and itchy, and although you've seen some amazing wedding ideas and inspirations, you are more confused than when you started off! You've just spent 4 hours surfing the web (mostly Pinterest because we love it so and there are a million great wedding ideas!) You have looked at wedding cakes, dresses, unique guest book ideas, venues, photography poses, flower girl dresses, ways to ask your best friend to be your maid of honor, jewelry ideas for your future mother-in-law, grooms gifts, candy buffets, hair dos, invitations, jewelry, bridesmaids dresses, color pallets and centerpieces. You even took a little detour to read funny wedding memes and "how to" tutorials. Everything looks so wonderful, how do you choose? And once you choose, where do you find these services? Are they local item? Do they need to be ordered from overseas? You wonder what the pricing will be and if each item, idea and concept would look the same on your special day as it does in a stylized photo shoot.
The internet is a great source for ideas but, when it comes to your wedding, nothing beats meeting and interviewing, in person, experienced, local wedding professionals that will be there for you on your special day to make your dream wedding come true. After all, don't you want to meet that wedding photographer that will be with you your entire day? What if their photography is great, but your personalities don't mesh and they don't make you smile? There are so many features that a website or "pin" cannot convey. For example, is the wedding coordinator you are looking up beat and energetic, formal or low key? Does the style and decoration of your wedding cake mean more than its scrumptious flavor? Your wedding day is like no other, and shopping and comparing wedding professionals in person is a "must do." Believe it or not by parring down your choices to realistic, local services, it will actually help alleviate wedding planning overload.
