It’s done! It’s here!! We are SO excited that we can hardly contain ourselves!

After months of planning, filming, and editing, our buddies at Ebb+Flow Productions have helped us create an inside look at the Emily Weddings team in action. We have looked high and low and haven’t been able to find anything like this before, which makes this even more exciting for us. Creatives, you get us, right? Doing something that hasn’t been done before makes you do a happy dance!

The inspiration for this video comes from the many stories we’ve heard about couples’ regrets over their wedding day. So much of what we hear could have been easily avoided by having an experienced, qualified wedding planning professional coordinate their dream wedding. Those same couples are the ones who told themselves, “We don’t need the added expense of a wedding planner. Let’s just do it ourselves. How hard can it be?

So we got to thinking… If those couples could have seen what it takes to execute a wedding well (like watching the Emily Weddings team in action), would they have chosen to hire a professional planning team and not put that pressure on their family, their friends, or themselves?

You know the saying “hindsight is 20/20”? It’s not until the day is done that these couples “get it.” The lightbulb goes off. They realize what mad chaos they took on in planning and executing what they hoped would be their dream wedding. Not only were their dreams unfulfilled, they didn’t get to enjoy it. Ugh…seriously hard for us to hear! You can even find reality wedding shows about doing the wedding over because, unfortunately, this is all too common. Some also confuse the venue coordinator as a day-of coordinator (a costly mistake), which we helped clear up in another post.

We can sit and share stories upon stories with you of why you need a planner or at least a day-of coordinator, but after much thought why not just show you in a video? Emily Weddings does everything we possibly can to give you FOREsight so as to avoid the dreaded “hindsight is 20/20” statement. We care about you, your wedding day, and your memories.

We hope this video will provide that foresight into what it takes to get it all done on your wedding day. You now have a firsthand look at the set-up, the tear-down, and everything that flows in between. No bad iPhone camera footage, no spiel behind a desk of us telling you how much there is to do on a wedding day, or us just sitting and telling crazy wedding stories. You get to see a first-hand look at the Emily Weddings Team busting it and having fun the entire time! You get to watch professionals work HARD to make your day the day you’ve always dreamed of.

You will see the village it takes to truly make your wedding flawless. You will see our team climbing ladders, connecting with vendors, handling grass stains on the wedding dress (you wouldn’t believe the unpredictable dilemmas we’ve encountered — and handled with grace and efficiency). You get glimpses of the team troubleshooting, directing, sending the bride down the aisle, and finding lost family members (yup; that happens, too).

This is our pulse, our heartbeat, our passion. Please don’t regret anything. Don’t be a possible candidate for a do-over wedding show. And please don’t allow the phrase “hindsight is 20/20” to become a part of your wedding day description.

Here is your foresight, here is our team…
