One of the best things about the Minnesota wedding industry, from the vendor side, is this big push for community over competition - collaboration over, well, over being big c words.
Hannah is the perfect example of that. Not just because she was SO excited, as a wedding planner, to work with her favorite vendors, but because she hesitated zero when asking me to be her day of coordinator. ME? You want me there ???
Dang. I was so glad to be there, and honestly you can here more about it from her on my podcast, Under the Veil (Episode 004 // A Friday Wedding Filled with Balloons). Not only is the episode HILARIOUS, but it's jam packed with excellent advice for planning your wedding, planning it the way you want to.
6 THINGS WE CAN LEARN
- It's okay to be strict about start times.
- If you're going to go with balloons for your decor, then put them EVERYWHERE.
- If you don't allow kids at your wedding, you don't allow kids.
- Sometimes what you plan (escort cards on the rim of champagne glasses) doesn't go as planned.
- Deciding, 10 minutes before your first dace, to do a balloon drop towards the end of that first dance only works if you have a day of coordinator to rally table 8.
- Last minute changes to room layouts make for momentarily cranky vendors.
