Welcome Guest Blogger, Meg White! Meg and Josh got married in the Cha Cha Room and had their reception in the Polka Room at Catalyst Ranch earlier this year. Here’s some advice from a savvy bride who’s been there! Meg is a Chicago-based writer/editor and the managing editor for REALTOR® Magazine.
When I got engaged, I got a ton of advice. Some of it was spot-on (“Get a new e-mail address just for the wedding”—yes, your spam folder will thank you later.) The advice was right most of the time, but not all the time (“If a vendor doesn’t call you back right away, they don’t deserve your business”—true when you’re talking about the big dogs, but some awesomely creative people don’t have secretaries and need a little slack.) One piece of advice that I got from several people who were apparently aware of my difficulty with delegating was, “Choose only one thing to do yourself, and leave the rest to the pros.”
