Hi All, My name is Michelle and I am from Newport News, VA. I am a registered nurse by trade. However, I needed an outlet, something that does not involve surgery and cancer. So I decided to go out of my element and take this coarse on Wedding and event planning. I am throughly enjoying every aspect. Now the only wedding I have planned was my own and believe me when I say "I wish I had a planner, it couldn't be farther from the truth". I had to shop for the venues, church, car rental, flowers, bride maids gowns, my own gown, tuxedo, and everything else. The only thing I had was time. I took all of 18 months to get the wedding plans right. Had I know now, I would of loved to put it in the budget to have a planner even if it was just for the day. My mom had to be the buffer on the day of as I was not about the drama and didn't feel I needed to be bothered by questions, excuses, or blatant silliness. Poor mom I will need to thank her again for being their for me.
This course had taught me there is always a solution and when all else fails your contract is going to be the best thing to come back to. I have learned so much and feel I have the tools to make it on my own, slowely but dedicated. I chose not be be a bridezilla because I wanted the best for my wedding and to have agreat memories. So I know when dealing with a bridezilla that I am there to listen and help them emotionally like my mom did for me.
