In planning a wedding, gala or other special event, you should look for the most professional band, caterer, designer, photographer, videographer and others. Look at reviews, scan websites and most of all, ask for referrals. You will find that the best refer the best for many reasons, including the fact that these professionals are easy to work with, and have your best interest in mind.
A truly professional partner will initiate a two way conversation, consulting with you to help you reach your vision and goal. Where a vendor will follow your lead, and take your order, a professional partner will guide you through the process, offering ideas to help you attain your goal.
Weddings and other social events have many moving parts, and multiple professionals involved. Often, there is a wedding or event planner as the point person, coordinating and creating timelines. etc. While a good planner may have general knowledge of all areas of your wedding or event, they will still rely on the other professionals as specialists in their field.
So do your homework, create your team of professionals and start the planning process with the partnership concept in mind. Your professional partners will appreciate this, as they will understand the need for communication at every level. I sincerely believe that this mindset and approach will result in more creativity, and in the end, a more successful event.
