How We Helped Predict (and Prevent) 4 Potential Wedding Disasters This Week

Blog, Event Planning Advice, Rants / 09.07.20180 comments

Sometimes we have clients who contact us stating that they “just” need us to do what they “tell” us to do and all we need to do is “show up” on the wedding day and “direct”.   There’s a problem with that.  Most do not know what needs to be done… let alone on the level it needs to be done.

While there are some coordinators  who may be willing to take this kind of client on, we do not.  Pointing people and services around  with no advance prep is all about putting fires out that could have been prevented in the first place.  And ultimately is costly to the couple.  You may save $2000 by hiring a day of coordinator who will only charge $300, but the potential disasters that could happen could end up costing tens of thousands of dollars in the end.

With the recent Thomas Fire and Flood devastation in Santa Barbara wiping out or causing delay to several popular wedding locations, engaged couples may think Santa Barbara is simply not the spot to get married in 2018.  On the contrary, I think it is better than ever – especially when you have a professional planner to help you navigate the logistics of what is available, and suits your spending plan and date.  A local professional wedding planner’s knowledge means he/she is in the trenches of what has been going on here location-wise, as well as is privvy to locations and venues (many not advertised to the public) and because of his/her in-depth knowledge of location, site fees and more, will know almost instantly the leading locations to which you should be steered, saving you invaluable time and money.

I’m tired of click bait personally, so decided not to title this article “The One Thing Every Bride Should Check Out Before Hiring Their Wedding Planner“.  Although, if I could, this title would be more accurate.

Here’s the thing about social media professionally:  it is intended to share and convey a brand. To engage with current customers as well as potential customers.  And yes, it is supposed to get personal from time to time.  Again, the operative phrase being “from time to time” . All business social media gurus and international marketing leaders agree that allowing potential customers to catch a glimpse into your personal life – sparingly- fosters trust and can build common ground and this trust leads to sales/bookings.

But besides the personal element of social media in business, I wish to bring up another topic rarely addressed, but one that is equally -if not more- important. It is a thorough review of how your prospective professional event planner handles themselves on social media, as it will tell you more about their work style and personality and
