We asked the pros from aRay of Events a few questions. Here are their answers.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this!
- What common mistakes do you see couples making?
They cut costs in areas that matter and spend too much money on things that do not. Example: Wedding Professionals such as photographers, videographers, and DJs are more important than favors and over-the-top decorations.
- What’s the best tip you have for a couple planning a wedding?
Hire an event planner or consultant. So many couples do not hire a professional because they want to “save money”. I save my couples more money than they spend on me with my wedding management and planner collections. They also stress themselves out way too much when they do not have someone outside their family and friends to run the day.
- What don’t couples know about your business that they need to know?
aRay of Events offers a variety of event planning and management services. We are not just “day of coordinators” who run the show. We help brides save money and create stress-free memories. We work one on one with the other wedding professionals to make everyone’s day run smoothly.
- What questions should couples be asking that they don’t know to ask?
When hiring any wedding professional, brides should be asking for detailed contracts and service agreements. What all is included with the service and what do most brides have to add on or get outside of what is included? Does the wedding professional have liability insurance? What time does the wedding professional need to arrive to be ready by start time? Does the wedding professional have a website and testimonials/reviews?
- What is your best piece of advice for couples planning a wedding?
Brides need to first ask themselves how much time and energy do they want to invest throughout the planning process and what is their realistic budget. They need to be honest with themselves from the beginning. I also encourage couples to have an open mind and take advice from the professionals who do this every weekend.
- What’s the most unusual wedding you ever did?
There have been several. The one that comes to mind would be an over-the-top field wedding. The theme was luxury, elegant, black tie, but the setting was in the middle of a field. Everything had to be brought in from several hours away and there were not any other wedding professionals hired other than myself at the last minute. It was very unusual and stressful.
- What was the most memorable wedding you ever worked on, and why?
The most memorable weddings are the ones where couples hire amazing wedding professionals that all worked great together, add personal touches throughout, and allow my team and I to decorate and make their visions come to life. When couples take the advice and allow us to take on the unnecessary stresses, everyone is happy at the end of the night.
