Wedding & Party Tips From The Pros!

“Coordinate EVERYONE With Your Schedule”. Make sure that all your vendors have and are willing to work off of the same timeline. Our motto is “The Best Surprise Is No Surprise”, especially when it comes to timing.

“Work Out Your Budget In Advance” It’s easier to plan an event by working on the budget first. You should decide to keep the budget at a low, medium, or high level. All items don’t have to be the most economical, nor do they have to be the most expensive — but they do have to be realistic! Later, when working with each vendor, you will save a lot of time and stress by not looking at items that are outside the budget.

“Proper Planning Is The Key To Success!” Many brides and grooms become overwhelmed planning the most special day of their lives, because they either begin too late or neglect to seek professional assistance in the primary stages. As certified wedding consultant, I have helped stress-free couples since 1989, beginning with a complimentary, no-obligation consultation, which includes the preparation of a budget. By offering an a la carte package, couples can pick and choose only the services they need, thus allowing them to stay within their budget. Alleviate the stress and anxiety associated with planning a wedding — hire a professional wedding consultant as soon as you set the date.

“Lots of Color in Your Decorations” Bright colors lift the energy level of your guests, giving your party more life. You can use color on the dining and buffet tables, splashed around the house or yard, and in your attire.

“Get The Most Out Of Your Experience” Show up on time or be totally crazy and show up early! You have invested a lot of money for photographs, entertainment, catering, flowers, and a handful of other activities. You will get the most out of your experience by arriving on time and ready to go!

“Plan With Your Guests In Mind” Think about what your celebration will be like from the point of view of a guest. Is there something to do when you arrive? Where do you put your coat? How long will it be until food is served? Are there tanalizing hints about what’s coming up during the party to pique your interest? How can you make requests of the band or disk jockey? Can you find the bathrooms easily? Is there shade (for an outdoor event) and enough chairs? Attention to your guests is what makes your party great.

“Communication” One simple but very important word, “communication”. Be sure all your professionals speak with each other beforehand. It will tell each that they all care…and that makes for the BEST parties!

“Take Care of All Details One Week Before” The less a bride, groom, or other party planner has to do the week of their event, the more they will personally enjoy their special date. Delegate tasks to other people and pre-pay all balances. Pretend your event is scheduled to occur one week before the actual date, and confirm all details and timelines early. The week of your event, treat yourself to a massage, mud bath, or other relaxing activity.
