I have been planning ceremonies for as long as I can remember.
I went to school for event planning and then started to intern at a local ceremony planning business.
Since that internship I have broken off on my own and started my own event planning business. The two of us program many events and do much more than program ceremonies, but the ceremonies have and consistently will be my preferred. I don’t normally labor closely with brides anymore because I have employees that stay in contact with them for me. I tried to make a manual for my employees about everything you need to do to prepare for planning the big afternoon. I have a whole chapter on heating and cooling in the manual. I can’t stress enough to my employees about the importance of have the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C program in the locale on the regular temperature; You don’t want to bride dripping with sweat or the guests shivering. It is a perfect balance when working with heating and cooling. I consistently tell my employees that they need to call the locale ahead of time and make sure the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C program is working. The last thing every one of us need is to have a ceremony planned and on the big afternoon the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C program has stopped working. This has happened to me before and I entirely try and avoid it happening again at all costs. Many people don’t realize how much the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C program plays into the afternoon of the ceremony. I entirely hope that my employees take me seriously when I say this.
