So my reality TV obsession has inspired a blog posting once again. I’m sure everyone has seen the wedding of Atlanta Housewife Cynthia Bailey. All my wedding industry colleagues were in a frenzy on twitter the night it aired because we couldn’t believe what a disaster this wedding was turning out to be. The wedding in the end was beautiful but so much went wrong. This is what happens when your wedding starts off with poor planning. Her first mistake was she hired her friend (whose a great stylist) to plan her wedding. If any brides out there are considering letting their friend plan their wedding and they are not planners, I hope after seeing this you reconsider. In the end, Cynthia had a beautiful wedding. She looked gorgeous, her husband looked handsome and the venue was exquisite. I just hope she enjoyed it to the fullest. As a planner, it broke my heart to see her stressed out about wedding planning. A good planner would have helped the couple with their budget and many of the mundane tasks she had to complete herself. Let this be a lesson to all the brides out there planning their wedding. A professional will save you money, time and your sanity.
