With some exceptions, I mostly speak with brides and their families when planning music for the upcoming wedding. It’s quite natural to help a couple visualize their celebration, and where music will be needed, by making an itinerary sketch.
While working with a particular bride on her grand entrance, I was picking up that there was some reluctance on part of the groom making it difficult for her plan. So I decided to give him a call.
In our discussion about his wedding itinerary the groom suddenly, in a moment of cognition asks, “Wait! Do you mean I have to walk into the room?”
This was a fundamental realization that he had to have, which, shed some light to the difficulty the bride was experiencing.
Now, I won’t speculate, if it was something like “stage fright” that had gotten this groom all balled up; he is a successful businessman and far from timid or stupid.
This could happen to anyone. He just needed to be made to look at his wedding and brought up to speed on the plans.
In this episode, Tobey and I discuss this phenomenon.
Listen to how this groom went upward from “clueless.”
And now please enjoy, “Upward from Clueless.” Wedding and Event Podcast Episode 35.
