Amy Our Wedding Angel xx
I think having been a bridesmaid for several family members and close friends and seeing the most calm natured, sane individuals turn into manic wedding obsessed maniacs, I assumed ‘Stress and Anxiety’ was just an inevitable and unwelcomed extra every bride had to face at some point during their wedding planning process…. How wrong I was! My Husband (I still love saying that) and I tend to live life 1000 miles an hour and the year we got married was no exception. In the 12 months prior to our special day we had our first beautiful baby boy, sold two houses moved three times, planned a christening, built a house and organised a wedding for over 120 people travelling from around the UK and further!
Marc’s input was simple “whatever you want darling” and my Bridesmaids although fantastic also lead extremely busy lives!
One question which was constantly thrown at me from concerned family and friends. “How are you coping with the stress of the wedding?” My answer was simple and true. “What Stress?” My General OCD and fanatical attention to detail is well known and feared amongst our friends and if anyone had the potential to become ‘A Bridezilla’ it was me, but to both mine and probably more so my husband’s relief I remained calm, content and exceptionally giddy throughout the whole wedding process! I would love to claim this was due to my exceptional planning and execution skills but as a new mummy, both promptly went out the window along with my rational, time keeping and spare moments to prep and prioritise! I have never been accused of being low maintenance and never could this be more prevalent than during my wedding planning …. However, the whole process remained calm, focused and to plan purely through Amy’s exceptional poise, organisation, pragmatic approach and dedication to making our special day perfect for us in every way! I can honestly say Amy became as important to our day as all our other carefully planned and invited members of the wedding party… She was my 4th Bridesmaid and by the sunshine filled morning of our wedding another treasured friend helping us celebrate our magical day! Our day was perfect in many ways and we truly couldn’t have asked for more but as with all meticulously planned occasions we suffered a couple of minor blips all of which were dealt with immediately and meticulously.
From the moment I woke (which was ridiculously early) to the moment we fell in to bed Amy was on hand smiling and pre-empting our every need. Nothing was too much trouble and more importantly when a minor disaster occurred (namely red wine on my beautiful blush lace gown), Amy was by my side emotionally and practically, not only removing stains (I’m still not sure how she managed it) but emotionally keeping me calm and smiling when everyone else around me was panicking.
If there were any problems we were never aware of them as Amy managed and coordinated the whole day perfectly.
I lost count of the compliments we received on the service and care she showed our guests. She is a true professional in every sense, her industry knowledge and experience was invaluable and I’m so pleased we were lucky enough to have her be part of our day.
Every Bride deserves her Perfect Day and Every Bride needs an Amy to make her dreams come true.
