Top Three Wedding Planning Mistakes to Avoid
Rather than watching mistakes happen at wedding after wedding, it may be time to attend event management
school and learn how to plan weddings. With this education, the aspiring wedding planner can avoid all three of the biggest
wedding planning mistakes listed below and make sure that every bride and groom has the best day of their lives.
Choosing a Venue That is the Wrong Size
Every couple has the potential to fall in love with
a certain space and they absolutely must have their wedding there. While the wedding planner wants to make the couple happy,
the wedding planner must also be practical in their assessment of the situation. If the wedding planner knows the size of
the invitee pool, they must make sure to lead the couple to places that will be the right size for their ceremony. Otherwise,
the wedding will be packed and people will be uncomfortable all day.
Choosing Entertainment That is not
When the couple wants to have entertainment at their reception, they must be led in the direction
of entertainment that is appropriate for the audience at their reception. The wedding planner must consider what the
audience will like and lead the couple to a choice that makes sense for everyone in attendance.
While this may sound like fun, it is the job of a wedding planner to taste all of the food that a caterer or chef
is going to prepare before it is served to the people at the wedding. While the tasting may have been fantastic when the bride
and groom were present, the wedding planner must ensure that the quality of the food is as high as it was when the bride and
groom tasted. Otherwise, the entire reception could be ruined by food that is not off the right menu or that is not up to
the standards the couple is expecting.
In each of these cases, a wedding planner who has an event management school
certificate can lead a wedding in a direction that is going to be beautiful for the couple, enjoyable for the guests and up
to the standards that the couple wants and is paying for. People see these problems happen every day, but they can make a
career change and make beautiful weddings for every bride and groom that hires them.
