For all of you event planners out there, please tell me you know what I'm talking about. When you're a planner, of any type, you are used to things being a certain way. Call it OCD or Type A but you are a person who thrives off having a plan and executing it.

Well I am OCD about things and slightly, mildly, certainly, Type A. So when it comes to my bridal shower and bachelorette party I clearly want to plan or at least be involved in the planning. Fortunately or unfortunately depending you look at it, I am NOT the type of person who likes surprises. They terrify me. I like knowing what to expect and to plan for the unexpected which is why "letting go" and "going with the flow" is extremely hard for me.

With that being said, I 100% trust my Maid of Honor. We have been best friends since 7th grade and she definitely knows what I like and what I don't. However I find myself having to approve bridal shower games, decor, food, drinks, etc. In my mind that's not weird however others think I'm insane!

For you planners out there, did you plan every aspect of your bridal shower and bachelorette party or were you able to "just go with the flow."
