People have this perception of planners as either
a. These ultra glam girly girls sipping on martini's and out and about town living some kind of Midwest version of Sex in the City
b. Extremely uptight never let loose, insanely hyper type A personalities with amazing organization but little personality
I don't think I have ever fit the mold of a wedding planner. From my youngest memories I have never been an overly girly girl. In my thirties I still have far more male friends than female, my favorite way to relax is to go boxing, and in all honestly when emailing from home I can often be found hair askew (like most days with curly hair), in some form of athletic apparel, and makeup free until I find it absolutely crucial to be seen by the outside world.
The greatest thing about our company though is that each one of us is SO different. From the mom to the young girl about town. The sorority sister to the camouflage clad four wheeling queen of the outdoors. It takes all kinds to do what we do and it takes a different kind of personality to appeal to each client. We may all have our differences but I can tell you the reality of who each of us are in our own homes are passionate lovers of love. Whether we sit over our computers reading Style Me Pretty, Junebug Weddings, Wedding Chicks or otherwise we all do it with intensity. One might be decked out in the newest trends, one in yoga pants with toddler Cheeto hand prints down the leg (that's likely me in all honesty) but we are in love with our jobs.
Each job has its perks. Though we don't have to despise Monday's as most of you do, you don't have to pick glass out of drunk people feet at midnight every weekend after a dance party. It's email all week and on our feet all weekend. Sunday is still the international day of rest but Monday is the sigh of relief when the feet stop throbbing and our ears stop ringing.
