If you can't say something nice . . .

An anonymous comment was recently submitted on this blog in response to one of our 2008 weddings. The commenter stated that they were a guest at this wedding and expressed frustration over the seating arrangement. Since the commenter chose to conceal their identity, I am not able to address this matter privately with them, so I wanted to take a moment to address it here.

I got the impression that this comment was left in an attempt to point out some sort of oversight on our part, and so I am going to ask this person to consider that as wedding planners, we are not necessarily consulted on every decision made in relation to the event (and even when we are, our recommendations are not always followed by the bride and groom). This is especially true in instances where we are hired to perform day-of coordination services only, as was the case with the wedding in question.

Since the anonymous comment also included some negative opinions about the bride and groom’s choice of flowers and d├ęcor, I am choosing not to publish it, as I would not want the couple to read it and feel badly. I guess it’s true what they say: you can’t please everyone.

Great response. You can never control what some people say especially anonomously. This is why I don't allow anonomous comments on my blog.
