What Brides Want

What Brides Want
Recently I attended a meeting with the venue and the Bride and Groom. I find loads of useful information as well as providing some in return. As I listened to the Manager talk I realized, “This person does not understand what a bride wants.”
A wedding, is a once in a lifetime celebration and should be treated personable. With that said, that manager, went through a checklist timeline that they do for every wedding. About half way through I had to interject and let the manager know that the bride had hired me to work on the Entertainment Schedule for them and that I would take his preferences in account when putting that together. And of course there was that awkward moment when the manager informed them of the, “in house DJ” that would come with the package they chose. The raised eyebrow to me from the bride and groom and vice versa had me thinking, “I’m right here! The DJ/MC and Director! Remember me? I introduced myself in the beginning?”
OK. Here is a question to you. Are your vendors asking you what you want? It’s obvious that this place has a one size fits all mentality. However, ultimately you are the boss and only you know what works for you and your wedding. A great vendor will ask questions to find out more about you, give suggestions and let you choose.
There are a great many professionals out there that devout themselves to helping you. Most of which are license, trained and insured. If someone seems pushy at telling you how it is, stop them immediately and let them know it may not be a fit with you. Next, give me a call and I would love to help you find that perfect team of professionals, who will help you create the perfect wedding celebration.
