Sorry, I Don’t Need a Wedding Consultant… My Venue Has One!

Regina Hare, Guest Author

In a follow-up call I made to a bride a few days after our initial meeting, she informed me that she was no longer interested in my coordinating services. Her reason was that she had secured her venue, and they had a coordinator, so she was going to use her instead. When I tried to explain to her that the venue coordinator did not do the same thing that I would do for her, she pretty much dismissed what I had to say.

Many brides misunderstand the difference between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Some clarification I would like to offer is as follows:

Venue Coordinator:

Employed by the venue and specializes in the services the venue offers, i.e., food, beverages, banquet rooms, hotel rooms, etc. They will service your needs as it pertains to the venue ONLY, and the venue is their main priority.

A venue coordinator’s sole responsibility is to the venue — to book it, ensure that all the policies and procedures are adhered to and that things go without a hitch – FOR THE VENUE. Of course, they are concerned about you as their customer as it relates to the venue. Although they may have a preferred vendor list that they give out in their information packet or brochure, this preferred vendor list is not indicative of any commitment to you to coordinate your wedding. In some cases, the vendors are on the list because of their reputation of working with the venue. However, do not rule out the fact that they may be paying for that consideration.

The venue coordinator’s job is to sell the venue to the bride, assist with room layout and other aspects that pertain directly to the venue. It is possible that they may have several weddings on the day of your wedding. On your wedding day, the coordinator you work with while planning your wedding may not even be the one who is present for your wedding. They will not be with you every step of the way in your planning process or on the day of your wedding. If the venue coordinator that you have been working with is indeed available that day, she will only deal with issues that pertain to the venue.

Now, before you make the mistake of choosing a venue coordinator and drop the idea of hiring a wedding coordinator, let’s clarify what the wedding coordinator does.

Wedding Coordinator:

Works with you every step of the way on all phases of your wedding. They are essentially your personal assistant, handling all of the details, advising, running interference, negotiating, researching and looking ahead to avoid costly errors. They have your best interest as a priority.

The wedding coordinator will work with you on everything from the budget to the flowers, photographer to the DJ, caterer to the cake, and you guessed it – YOUR VENUE. Your wedding coordinator will handle every aspect of your wedding planning, alerting you to possible problems that may be costly. Wedding coordinators also have relationships with vendors in the industry, possibly encouraging discounts and/or negotiating terms that you would not be able to do on your own. They can keep you on budget, on target and focused. They can help with event décor and design. They can help you with etiquette questions, creating a budget and payment schedule for vendors, creating timelines for your event, researching vendors, scheduling appointments with vendors and attending them with you, reviewing contracts, and much more. Pick any number of these items and ask your venue coordinator to handle them, and she will probably direct you to the wedding coordinator section of their preferred vendor list!

Many brides feel that a wedding coordinator is something they do not need and that is not in their budget. Honestly, you cannot afford not to have one. They will save you time and money and do everything they can to make sure your day is a wonderful one. Everything will run smoothly, and you will be able to focus on your guests and family.

Venue coordinators do a great job, but I think brides are confused about what they really do and what they do not do. They can be of great assistance at the venue. However, if you have a wedding coordinator, they ultimately end up working with the venue coordinator, handling the areas that the venue coordinator does not, bringing everything together for a great event!

Honeymoon Bridal Gift Registry

What a terrific wedding gift alternative for the modern Bride and Groom. Instead of conventional wedding gifts, friends and family can shower you with a honeymoon gift that will provide you with a lifetime of memories.

giftregistryOn a traditional wedding registry, couples register for china, flatware and kitchen appliances. You may already have most of the necessities. Some couples have enough household items between the two of them to stock an entire home or apartment. These couples would greatly appreciate help paying for a honeymoon instead.

When wedding guests ask, “Where are you registered?” direct them to a honeymoon travel registry.

A honeymoon registry is a trendy alternative to a traditional wedding registry and allows your guests to help you to achieve your dream honeymoon vacation by purchasing pieces of the trip as a wedding gift. It is a relatively new and exciting concept that began in the 1990s as an additional service.

Some are still set up in this manner and require wedding couples to use their travel agency to book their honeymoon. More recent honeymoon registries are not involved with the planning and booking of the honeymoon. Instead, they provide the bride and groom with a customizable web page to share their honeymoon plans with others and accept gifts toward the honeymoon.

It’s time to let your imagination soar! What would it take for you to have the honeymoon of a lifetime? You could take a cruise, stay at an all-inclusive resort, rent a condo on the beach, a honeymoon suite, include airfare, breakfast in bed, a relaxing massage, a romantic candlelight dinner at an elegant restaurant, scuba diving lessons, entertainment, a relaxing day at the spa and even shopping funds.

Your friends and family participate by purchasing pieces of the trip as a wedding gift. For example a $1,000 gift item can be divided into twenty $50 increments. Guests save time on buying gifts because everything can be purchased online and an added bonus is that there are no gifts to wrap or carry to the reception! The benefit for the bride and groom, you avoid incurring a massive honeymoon debt.

top10honeymoonRegistry activities are displayed in an organized and user-friendly inventory format on their customized registry page. As wedding guests browse the registry page, they can make a gift, typically using a credit card, of any of the listed activities or give a general monetary gift of any amount towards the honeymoon.

Some travel agencies also provide honeymoon gift registries services. Some are free, however nearly all honeymoon registry services charge a service fee (usually 7 percent to 15 percent) on collected funds. As with anything else, you need to be a smart consumer when choosing a honeymoon bridal registry. Fees vary by service provider, though some sites may lower or eliminate fees if a certain amount of travel is booked through an associated agency. You typically receive a check for the total gift cash contributions minus the company’s percentage.

There are several services that eliminate service charges by allowing couples to accept cash, check or PayPal payments directly from guests – some are funded through advertising, others by a setup fee. Check them out carefully and remember you usually get what you pay for.

Etiquette says that registry information should never be included with wedding invitations. However, it can be sent with shower invites. Some provide free printable announcement cards to insert into bridal shower invitations as well as free electronic thank you cards. You can also give registry cards to your immediate family. They are the ones people will ask when they want to know where you’re registered.

Remember, before you get carried away with registering for pricey excursions, you must have airline tickets and hotel reservations to take a vacation. Determine your priorities and proceed accordingly.

Going out of the country for your honeymoon? Click here for passport information. If the Bride is changing her name, it’s best to travel with her current passport (with her maiden name) as it often takes weeks to receive the “certified copy” of the license after it’s filed by the wedding officiant/minister with the County Clerk’s office. A certified copy of the license is required by the USA State Department to legally change a bride’s name.

Hot Tip: Don’t plan to leave on your honeymoon immediately. Read the #1 tip in my article, “Miscellaneous Tips For Your Wedding, Honeymoon and More.”

Your honeymoon should be the highlight of your wedding experience. Honeymoon registries should help enhance that experience by not only helping get it paid for, but also helping put your mind at ease that your honeymoon is in the hand of capable, competent experts.

Some wedding guests may see a honeymoon registry as asking for money. Those with traditional views may consider this rude. However, just as most couples register with multiple retailers, couples may also register with a retailer and a honeymoon registry.

Check out the Travelers Joy Honeymoon Registry.

When researching your honeymoon registry, we recommend that you ask:

• How long have you been in business?
• Are you a member of the Better Business Bureau?
• Is the money in my registry account secure? How??
• Can I make all of my arrangements, including travel, with you (i.e. “one stop shopping”) or,
• Do I have to use you for our travel?
• Is your website secure? How?
• What is your privacy policy?
• Do you have an 800# in case my friends in family don’t use the internet?
• Can you provide me with references to substantiate your service?

Guestimating Your Wedding Guest List?

Filed under: Guest Authors,Guest List,Wedding Tips — Larry James @ 7:00 am
Tags:

Melissa Stark Baldwin, Guest Author

A guest estimate is vital in choosing an event space that is comfortable for your wedding and can be very – if not extremely – confusing for any bride. Not to worry! With a little bit of effort, organization, and guess work, you should be able to come to a workable conclusion for a guest count to aide you in choosing a spectacular venue that is the perfect size for your wedding.

The first step is to list everyone that you intend to invite to your wedding, and then separate that list into local guests and out of town guests. Of your closer friends and family, you can assume that 85% to 90% will attend. Out-of-town guests are a whole other estimate; about 50% to 55% of them should be anticipated to attend. If your guests live more than a few hours drive from your Albany, Saratoga Springs, or Adirondack wedding venue, they will likely fall into the out-of-town category.

The secret to getting this kind of turn out is to send out your invites well in advance (about 8 weeks) and to use save the dates if you can (about 6 months prior). If these numbers confuse you, don’t worry about it, here’s a quick breakdown:

weddingguestsYour Guest List: 175 guests
In-Town Guests: 125
Out-of-Town Guests: 50

In-Town Guest List:
125 guests x 85% expected turn out ratio = 107 guests (always round up 1 for decimals)

Out-of-Town Guest List:
50 guests x 50% expected turn out ratio = 25 guests

Your low estimated guest turnout is: 132

If you like you can also use the higher percentages to estimate a higher count, and average the two together to provide yourself with a median. This can be useful if you have a lot of out-of-town relatives that you know like to travel.

Your Guest List: 175 guests
In-Town Guests: 125
Out-of-Town Guests: 50

In-Town Guest List:
125 guests x 90% expected turn out ratio = 113 guests (always round up 1 for decimals)

Out-of-Town Guest List:
50 guests x 55% expected turn out ratio = 28 guests

Your high estimated guest turnout is: 141

Average Guest Count:
132 smaller estimate + 141 larger estimate= 273
273 ÷ 2 = 137

Your total average guest count is: 137

Of course, these numbers will always vary by event and guest type. However, these numbers can be well worth your time if you want to pick the right size of venue. It is also a great way to get a head start on address collection for your invitation list. It’s never too early to hire a wedding planner! Getting a wedding planner involved early on is key to getting your guest list and your wedding plans organized so that both of you can really enjoy your big day!

The Simple Boutonnière

Filed under: Boutonniere,Wedding Tips — Larry James @ 7:00 am

boutonniereBoutonnières are small clusters of one or two flowers, greenery (or non-traditional boutonnières) worn on the left lapel of a man’s suit to formal occasions. Place the boutonnière at a slight angle on the left lapel, approximately 4 inches in from the tip of the left shoulder. Pinning on a boutonnière gives the finishing touch to a man’s wedding suit or tuxedo.

In the past, the stem of a boutonnière was inserted through an actual buttonhole in the man’s left lapel. Today, a lapel will most likely have a faux buttonhole, or maybe, none at all, so the boutonnière needs to be pinned. Trying to get it pinned on straight and keeping it from flopping over are a couple of the challenges.

At more than one wedding I’ve been asked to help with the groom’s or groomsmen’s boutonniere. It either came off or was tilting to starboard. Here is another great “must add” to your bride’s emergency kit.

It’s call “The Simple Boutonnière.” Pinning a boutonnière isn’t that complicated with this clever device. This product was created to benefit anyone who has ever had trouble attaching a boutonnière or corsage for any occasion. It will help you avoid potentially embarrassing and dangerous pinning encounters. The tip of the pin cannot poke the groom or groomsman because of the way it is made.

People shouldn’t have to worry about if their boutonnière or corsage will fall off, tilt sideways or prick their finger with a pin during their big day or event! It’s the fastest and most reliable way to attach a boutonnière or corsage. And. . . it won’t shift from side-to-side or tilt to starboard. 😉

Available in the Greater Phoenix area at Baisch & Skinner, 525 West Turney, Phoenix, AZ 85013 (http://www.BaischandSkinner.com) or go to: http://www.TheSimpleBoutonniere.com.
