All of the endless possibilities, working with brides and grooms with different backgrounds and cultures. Learning about each couple’s backgrounds gives me a better idea of who they are as a couple and blends into their personalities and the type of wedding that they’d like. I’m usually able to find something about them and something about me that blends us together and helps to form a solid working relationship. My clients tend to be open-minded, connecting to the comments that I make about the wedding planning process, timeline and budget and learning along the way.
I love watching each couple coming into their reception. Hearing them say, “This is perfect, it’s what I had envisioned in my mind!” The look on their faces is priceless. You know that you did your job to perfection up to their expectations and even beyond. Also, the guests appreciating the decor and all of the little details. It makes all of the hard work you put in behind the scenes, fixing things that weren’t quite right, all the more worthwhile.
Consider the month/season, number of guests, budget. Think outside of the box! Las Vegas offers some very unique venues that cater to your budget and what you need so don’t be afraid to make it your own and go “off the beaten path” with your wedding!
Yes, definitely. Every wedding that I’ve done, I try to taste the cake and then I’ll have an idea of the quality of pastry that they serve. If I’m not happy, the guests won’t be happy. It has to not only look good, but taste good. The cake is something that people remember long after the event is over so it needs to be just right.
Vendors must be professional and return my calls. If they can’t get back to me in a timely manner, that’s a red flag. They must work with me as a team and have a timeline that makes sense for the event. I work with vendors and see how they perform in each wedding. I do not like vendors who drink during events; it doesn’t seem professional to me. The relationship that they build with me is important. I need to be able to rely on them, and vice versa. They know that I’m flexible and reliable; if the photographer needs additional time for an intimate shot of the couple, I work with them and build some extra time in before the meal is served. Teamwork is essential. Often the first impression is right; I see if they are approachable and seem to be easy to work with. These criteria are essential in order for me to work with a vendor and I’ve been fortunate to build relationships with very talented and professional vendors that I can call upon over and over.
