Stick To What You Know...

At the April seminar, one of the brides who attended confided with the group that she was indeed working with a wedding planner.  I was a little surprised because why come to the seminar if you have hired someone to personally guide you through the process?  Well, come to find out her "wedding planner" (and I use that term loosely) was also her caterer.  And if that wasn't bad enough, this person does not have a commercial kitchen... she cooks out of her home!  I don't know about you, but I don't think those two things are even remotely connected.  In fact, I can plan an excellent event, but you would not want me anywhere near the kitchen... just ask my husband!  And obviously the same could be said about her "planner"... this person is the sole reason why the bride has had to postpone her wedding!

So that got me to thinking about the businesses that are out there who offer multiple services, and some of which are not really connected at all.  Wouldn't you want to hire someone who focuses 100% of their time on being the best at what they do?  But if they do 3 totally separate things, obviously their attention and experience is split.  Yes, I know those are the companies that claim they can save you lots of money, but remember what mama used to say, "you get what you pay for".  Sometimes those "savings" are more expensive than you ever imagined when it means to have to hire another caterer, resend invitations and postpone your entire wedding.
