For those of you who know me personally or who have worked with me you inevitably have heard me talk about managing expectations as being a huge part of my job. This is often one of the most challenging parts of my job- managing expectations of everyone involved and keeping things realistic. In the very connected, smart phone world we all live in now there are constant streams of information coming at you in all forms. From the second the ring is placed on the hand and someone says "YES!" the expectations start stacking up. Is the ring nice? Is it big enough? Will you get married this year? How big will the wedding be? What style wedding will you have? What will your dress/suit look like? Each and every person involved with a wedding has to manage their expections for this big day. I talk about it so often that it never really dawned on me that this is my topic- this is what I will start a blog series about. I will call it Great Expectations (original huh?) and in each installment of this series I will talk about a specific person or couple and the expectations they have for their role in the wedding day. I will write about the mother of the bride, the maid of honor, the LGBT couple, the parents who are paying for the wedding etc, etc and all the expectations that will need to be managed with each role. My wheels are already spinning thinking about this so stay tuned for all that is to come!! I will be launching my first installment of this series soon and who knows how many installments I will write but I have a feeling I will not run out of wedding expectations to discuss!
Stick around - you are going to want to read what I post!!
