Open Letter to Brides

Dear Brides,

First let me congratulate you on your-up-and-coming wedding! I know you've been dreaming about this day for a long time and you want it all to be perfect! Trust me, we of all people know that. And maybe some of you haven't been dreaming about this day forever, and now are just realizing that you need to plan this shin-dig!

A lot of you want to plan every detail of your wedding, you are probably an A-Type personality just like me and want to be involved in every detail of your wedding. I get that. We get that.Wedding Planners are here to make sure that happens. Trust me, you are going to be busy on your wedding day, your mom and fiance are going to be busy too.

Who is going to be there to execute those details so you don't have to worry about them getting done and your vision happens how you've dreamed it would be. It's our job, that's what we do.

I know you hired the best photographer, and the best caterer and the best videographer! And I am thrilled that you've placed your trust in those vendors to make your wedding dreams come true! And they are fantastic at what they do!

But please, let them do their jobs - they work better when they are allowed to take pictures and give you amazing food and amazing products. Allow yourself to trust us to do ours and make your dreams come true.

Hiring someone to help you is not giving in, it's not giving up, it's allowing yourself to relax and enjoy your wedding!

I want you to enjoy your wedding!

With Tons of Love,

Melissa DiStefano

I feel like a letter like this should be sent/given to every newly engaged bride! And put on all wedding websites. These are things that you don't think of until it's sometimes too late!

Many people asked why I had a wedding planner if I was the one choosing the designs and vendors and really doing the planning... its because while I envisioned it and decided on colors and centerpieces etc... she's the one who had to pull it off! And THANK GOD because there is no way I could have been as relaxed and as happy and in the moment as I was, if I had been concerned about the details or the flowers etc. We got to be relaxed and pampered like VIP guests at the party that we intricately designed to be "us". What more could someone ask for? Every bride should have a wedding planner!

Great letter!! I agree, all brides should get this when they get engaged. It would make their lives so much easier. :)
