You've waited your whole life for your big day and you want everything to go perfectly. But there are a few pitfalls you need to know about that can end up costing you time and money and leaving you with regrets. Fortunately, we have the inside scoop from some wedding pros on the mistakes you can easily avoid with the help of the right experts... so you can have the best day ever!
Holly Collins from Adventures in Dance on the two costly mistakes you need to avoid:
I have the privilege of meeting wedding experts from every facet of the wedding industry, from florists, to makeup artists to wedding planners. Recently I had the opportunity of meeting with Carol Lathrop, Registered Wedding Planner and owner of IMESevents. I believe a reputable wedding planner is an asset to your peace of mind on your wedding day. Carol’s reputation is represented by her membership with Association of Bridal Consultants. You can put your mind to rest that Carol has the expertise to make your event a success.
Carol is also a Sandals resort agent. Some of the most memorable weddings she has planned are destination weddings at a Sandals Resorts. Carol has the connections at all the Sandals resorts to the onsite planners who can bring your exotic destination wedding plans to life.
I had a great time talking with Carol. One of the costliest mistakes Carol told me about was waiting to hire a planner. Wedding planners can help you negotiate the best rates on all your wedding services. They can review contracts and help select the best wedding vendors for your tastes.
The second tip Carol has is for hair and makeup. You only get one shot at your big day, and your photos and videos are forever. Planning in advance what you do with your hair and makeup can make or break your photos. Carol advises that brides plan time for a test run. Schedule an appointment with your hair and makeup expert to do a dry run of what you plan for your wedding day. Then you'll know what to expect so you feel and look your best!
IMESevents is a great company to work with for your wedding. To see if Carol is a good fit for you, all you have to do is give her a call. After a short phone conversation, she has a simple four step process on her website to point your event in the right direction.
