The Destination Wedding

The Wedding Planner:

I'm having a destination wedding at a venue that employs an in-house planner, and she hasn't consulted me on some decisions.  How should I handle this?

WP_destinationwedding_WOIt's possible that she thinks she's helping by not bothering you.  Decide what you want input on - for example, the look of your tables - and leave other tasks - perhaps, where to set up the band - up to her.  Ask the planner to contact you before making final decisions on the items you care about most, and let her know that an e-mail is a welcome intrusion.  (It also gives you a written record of decisions.)  Be courteous and prompt in responding, to keep planning on track.
