Having a solid connection with your vendor is important. Keep in mind that it is actually a good idea to let your potential vendors know if you have decided to book someone else, or if they are out of your budget. As much we would love the opportunity to tell you all about our business and how we can help you, we are completely understanding if you happen to find a good fit before we have a chance to meet. Out of courtesy, you should notify individuals that you have reached out to, to let them know that you are no longer in need of their services. The more detailed you are about why you didn’t pursue a consultation, the more it helps us to market better. Whether the photos on social media didn’t match your style, or the website lacked specific information that you were looking for, your feedback, negative or positive is very much appreciated, plus we’ll stop bugging you with emails and phone calls ;-) Of course, it can sometimes be a hard pill to swallow, but if we don’t know what isn’t working for us, then we can’t fix it. In addition, I would like to suggest that if you find multiple vendors that fit your needs, go ahead and chat with them all. This isn’t an aggressive industry, and I can assure you that most of us won’t push you into making a decision on the spot. I encourage you to give each one a chance, see what they have to offer because we all have different things we bring to the table. But ultimately, there is only one person that is going to be the best fit for you.
About five months from their wedding date Missy & Tom hired me as their month-of coordinator. From the vendor contracts they provided, I was immediately able to develop a timeline and address all the questions they had. I offered advice based off my experience in the industry and even referred a few last-minute vendors that they hadn’t secured yet. We met for their final walk-through about 30 days from their wedding date and tied up the remaining loose ends. After our meeting, I contacted all of their vendors. I provided them with a copy of the timeline and verified their arrival times. Everything was set and ready to go. Missy and Tom had complete trust in me and were able to enjoy the morning as they got ready for their wedding. I arrived at the venue four hours before the ceremony and I immediately went to the reception hall to check on the set-up. The couple had a large head table and had to have linens special ordered for it. The linens were supposed to have been delivered and placed 2 hours prior to my arrival. When I noticed that the tables were still bare, I called the venue coordinator to check on the location of linens. I was prepared to start placing them myself, no big deal, I do that all the time anyway. As I waited for the return call, I went to the bridal suite to see how my bride was doing. She was getting her hair done, drinking champagne and laughing with her bridesmaids. While I was there I received a phone call from a distraught venue coordinator, telling me that someone had canceled the linen order and they were never dropped off. I politely excused myself and immediately started calling the rental company. With no answer from any of the numbers that I had, I began calling other rental companies to see if I could find similar linens. I was able to reach one company that I had worked with several times in the past and they had exactly what we needed in stock. Because of our relationship, she offered them free of charge due to the circumstances. After 40 minutes, I finally received a call back from the original rental company and it was determined that there was an error in the file on their end. However, the linens were on a delivery truck and were on the way. Within only a couple hours I was able to resolve the issue without my couple ever knowing what had occurred.
Cheers to our couples of 2017! Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
Blush Pink had an amazing year in 2017.
We went through a change of ownership and a 1,000 mile relocation.
Blush Pink was originally developed in early 2016, as a partial planning company under Haute Weddings, in San Antonio, Texas. Jen took over as manager of Blush Pink in the summer of 2016 and successfully booked over 18 weddings. In the summer of 2017, Jen was presented with an offer to purchase Blush Pink and gladly accepted the opportunity. In August, Jen and her family relocated to Atlanta, Georgia so she brought Blush Pink with her! With great expertise and enthusiasm we are ready for the adventure that 2018 will bring.
When your big day arrives, your experienced vendors will be well prepared with everything needed to perfect your day. However, there are a few things you will still be responsible for, and during all the excitement it can be very easy to forget even the simplest of things. So, we have provided a helpful list of necessities you should pack before and bring with you on your wedding day. And… when you hire a top-notch, dedicated wedding planner such as Blush Pink Weddings, we will have at least these items already on hand, just in case.
