Beth and Chuck Burow were married on July 3rd, 2010 at the Palace Ballroom in Seattle. The couple chose Merry Beth as their wedding consultant to create the occasion of a lifetime. We caught up with Beth recently to reflect on her big day and share some insights from her experience.
Aisle of View: Describe how your hiring me was a benefit to you.
Beth: OMG, how was hiring you NOT a benefit to me! My goal was an intimate, elegant wedding. Yes, I could have quite possibly pulled one together, but not without pulling my hair out! I have very little free time and even less patience, and you streamlined everything. We told you what we were possibly looking for and you told us the best people out there who would get the job done beautifully.
Aisle of View: On a scale of 1-5 (5 being high), how stressed were you with the wedding planning or on the day of your wedding?
Beth: My stress was at a 1 during the planning, a 2 during the final month. A 4 on the day that I had to ask a coworker to fill in for me to get to the make-up fitting session with my seamstress (Mariya at La Belle Elaines is the best!) by 5 PM. The wedding day itself, not stressed at all! Now, I didn’t say I wasn’t nervous, but stressed, no way!
Aisle of View: Overall, did I meet or exceed your expectations of your wedding day vision?
Beth: You definitely exceeded them. For instance, I read my trusty little wedding book, and like a good bride, I put together a little emergency kit for any unknown needs the day of wedding. Well, little did I know that Merry Beth had THE KIT!! About the size of New Hampshire, all labeled alphabetically.
Aisle of View: If you could go back and change something, what would that be?
Beth: Gosh, I really haven’t thought about how I would change anything, really. I still would have liked to get my cats into the wedding photos. The dummies wouldn’t cooperate. What’s new?
