Select the Vendors and Follow-up Twice!
Can you imagine the church is double booked or the salon is locked up when the bride arrives for hair and makeup? It happens! With Perfect Events by Jan, one of the services included with partial planning is the follow up and confirmation with every vendor in advance.
For all planning packages, Perfect Events by Jan will confirm expectations twice and get alternate contacts for all. Every vendor needs to be confirmed and this includes the Church or ceremony venue, rehearsal and reception venue, salons, musicians,officiants, photographer, videographer, transportation, rental services etc. You may ask, why do we do this? Well, we all know some of the best laid plans don’t always work out as expected.
Recently, a friend was explaining what happened with her daughter’s wedding a few weeks ago in Iowa. She said it was all great, but there was one big problem and boy was she right. From the Bride’s review of the studio “On the day of the wedding we (the entire bridal party, including moms) arrived at the downtown studio to find it closed. The lights were off and no one was present in the studio. I was able to reach the owner after 4 phone calls and a text message, about 20 minutes after our 8:00 scheduled start time. The owner arrived approximately 30 minutes later. Additional team members arrived later and I was uncertain if we would be able to have our hair done. The makeup artists in the studio started to do our hair. Given the time constraints on the day, there was no time to make any adjustments to my hair style prior to leaving the salon, as we were already late for the photographer. My hair required multiple adjustments throughout the day and ALL members of the bridal party had exposed bobby pins in the pictures.”
So, you’ve spent a fortune on one of the most important days of your life and expect it to be perfect and it was a lovely ceremony, but your hair and makeup doesn’t look so great in the pictures. It is so easy to see how one vendor error can add additional stress on the day and have a forever impact on your wedding day memories. Don’t let this happen to you.
Pulling it all together really is a full-time job and requires a professional with the experience and knowledge for perfect execution. A planner and coordinator are essential.
With all events and wedding there are a million details and we love handling all of them. Perfect Events by Jan offers professional planning and execution for safe events and weddings filled with happiness and joy.
Happiness and joy,
