Even Wedding Planners Have First World Problems (Los Angeles Wedding Planning)

Ah, first world problems. Be prepared to roll your eyes:

I have a confession to make: I coordinated my last wedding, and attended the Gay and Lesbian wedding expo with un-manicured hands. 
I hadn't had a pedicure in a few weeks, either!
I try my best to look my best when I go out, because, you know, wedding planner. But between work for my couples, and blog writing, and prepping for both the wedding and the wedding expo, there was no time to get the nails done.
On Friday, I thought, okay. I have Jenn's jewelry show, and I can't be there with crack whore fingers. I have this big business/networking event in Atlanta next weekend, and I definitely CANNOT show up with crack whore fingers.  I go to my usual salon,  get the Gel manicure. I can't keep a regular manicure for more than two minutes, it doesn't matter how long they are under the heat lamp. I never get the Gel pedicure, because it seems like overkill, right? Expensive overkill. 

Walked out, went home, put on my shoes two hours later, and  I felt the polish sliding off my big toe. Saturday morning, back to the salon, and they re-did the polish, at no charge.  My big toe nail has a cut in the middle of it (TMI), and the manicurist tells me, like she warned me the day before, that's probably why the polish keeps rubbing off so easily. "Are you sure you don't want a Gel pedicure?" No! Expensive overkill! 
Saturday. Put on my heels, felt the polish go. Again. 
Sunday. Walked back into the Salon, and got the Gel pedicure. Only this time, I had to pay for the polish change AND the Gel. 

Three hours over three days, unnecessary stress, to avoid spending an extra $15.00! 

We can spend so much time trying to save money, and often we waste both our time and our money, and still don't quite get what we want. When all we have to do - and what we have the resources to do - is get the help we need in the first place. Time. Money. Stress. Saved. 

Are you finally frustrated enough to find out how I can save you time, money and stress in your wedding planning? My service rates are going up across the board on Saturday, so today is the time to  me to schedule your free 15-minute strategy session so you can lock down 2013 prices for your 2014 wedding.
