I recently got this question from a client, “How do religious customs factor into your boutique wedding experience?”
Religion is often a major part of a wedding ceremony. Whether you are flipping tradition on its head or staying strictly traditional or doing something in between we must always be respectful and mind our manners.
I happen to be a spiritual person myself. Last year my spirituality was reinforced when we had a family emergency that put the fragility of life into perspective. We’re fine, thankfully, but it did give me an opportunity to reevaluate my life priorities.
Having gone through this life challenge I want to show respect and you can too.
I do not think you need to be a religious person to be a good wedding planner, but it is very important torespect religious customs when planning wedding ceremonies.
I hear so many stories of inexperienced planners, guests, and wedding parties failing to respect decorum in a place of worship. It’s embarrassing for the couple and reflects poorly on the place of worship.
The misconception of a day of coordinator
The misconception that I only need a day of coordinator again comes into play with this aspect thus potentially embarrassing you without even knowing it. Do you want an order taker planner? There is no way for them to know you on a spiritual level or know what you want your wedding to feel like or look like. That last month leading up to your special moment so much can go sideways and leave you feeling hurt, sad, frustrated, or worse yet forget things that were to be brought and it doesn’t have to be that way.
That is why I choose to serve my clients with full service planning, I want to see you get everything you want without a care in the world and we offer you a boutique wedding experience that will take your breath away. Experience after experience that you can add to your cherish memories to look back on and reminisce about. Imagine looking back and thinking wow, everything went smooth, I remember the smells of soft sweet lavender and hugging friends and family. I remember the kind words they offered me and looking into my new spouse’s eyes.
Being a luxury wedding concierge means respecting where a wedding ceremony is being performed.
Sometimes I have to educate myself about the unique religious customs of the wedding I am planning. Not surprisingly, there’s a lot.
There’s no excuse as a planner in failing to maintain good standards during a religious ceremony. As a woman of faith, I will do everything to make sure that your religion’s customs are respected during a wedding ceremony.
Calling all clergy
This year has already become overwhelming trying to serve all the couples that postponed from last year, serving all the new clients from this year and the pressing inquiries for next year.
Are you short on time? Frustrated with balancing your congregants needs, pastoral duties, your empathic desire to serve and figuring out how to stretch time to get it all done?
Are you worried about trying to keep all your weddings organized or putting more tasks on your assistants desk?
It doesn’t have to be that way.
As a concierge planner with over 20 years of service I enjoy creating experiences for my clients as well as everyone included in the wedding to design an event that is special, memorable, stress-free, and joyful!
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have extra help?
Would it be helpful to have an email reminding you all about your couples wedding right before you meet with them so you are clear on their wedding wishes?
