Wedding Wednesday – Keeping Things Stress Free


Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s starting to look a little white around here. Let’s see if the snow actually stays this time…..hopefully not! :-)

Today on Wedding Wednesday I want to share with you one really important aspect of the wedding. Something that probably most people think is not a necessity….

A Wedding Planner.

Early on in the wedding planning we started to notice people (my mother in particular) asking us questions that we didn’t know how to answer.

“Who’s going to do this? And, Who’s going to do that?”

It was honestly starting to stress me out a little. And I didn’t like that feeling.

From the beginning Ryan and I agreed on one very important thing for our wedding. We wanted to enjoy the planning process and enjoy the wedding, stress free. I wanted to have fun with the planning process. And, so far, it’s been that way.

Sure, there have been some less then ideal times and situations. Guest list in particular. But, I can’t say that it was something that I lost sleep over.

I wanted it to be that way for the wedding day too! I didn’t want to be concerned if this guy showed up or that person got paid.

So, for our sanity, and that of our parents, Ryan and I decided to hire a wedding planner!

Marry Me Productions is the leading wedding planners in Ottawa and the surrounding area. They have an AMAZING reputation. Quite simply, they are the best!

We met with Stacey in her office on Preston Street. Her office being where I saw my dress for the first time!

After discussing our options we decided on the the “Manage” package because it really allowed me to be creative and look after the details myself! Here is what the description says:


Verb – to take charge or care of

Wear a watch to your own wedding? No thanks. Do you really want to spend your most important day worrying about where the cake is or if your flowers will make it to the church on time or why there are only 75 napkins when there is suppose to be 175 or…you get the point. As your wedding day insurance team, let us worry about the details. It’s what we do.

Doesn’t that sound like the PERFECT wedding solution? I get to be creative and do a lot of DIY projects and come wedding day I won’t be sitting there stressed about flowers/programs getting to the church (and other details like that).

I know many brides have beautiful weddings and don’t have wedding planners, especially in our small town. But, Ryan and I don’t have “buyers remorse”. It is one of the best decisions we have made. We get to enjoy our day as do our friends and family.

So, far the wedding planning as been stress free and down right FUN! I can easily say I have enjoyed the process! Ry and I decided on a wedding planner for the day of the wedding because now on our big the wedding details are looked after and we can focus on what the day is about….our marriage!

Happy Wednesday!
