  9. If 2020 was a song for the wedding industry what would it be?

Making the decision whether or not to hire a professional wedding planner is something to consider early and often as you move toward the big day;  Discussing the things to consider when deciding if it is right for you.  During the talk with professional planner Janelle, we discuss the experience, risk mitigation, and fire in the wedding venue.

Janelle tells us about how nothing can replace the experiences of a pro with a long history.  She encourages couples to think about worst case scenarios and work back into an effective plan.  She also tells a story about fixing a problem in a way that only a truly prepared professional can fathom.
