Wedding Planners Do Matter
Keeping an open mind can be the key to greatness. Even greatness beyond comprehension at times! This philosophy can apply to abundant areas in life, including your wedding reception! Obviously every person is different. Some couples have a precise plan of action – all of the details are pretty much determined, carefully mapped out. Everything is settled on…..precisely how the room will look, the type of food that will be served, and any other fine details that will be included in the evening. This could appear to be wonderful on one hand, because there is not much work left to do as not only the concepts but also the fine details are already in place. However, if you step back and look at things from a 50,000 foot view, it could also be a disadvantage. The reason I say this is because it is almost like you are limiting yourself and your event. I am not insinuating that you (the couple) shouldn’t think about the wedding reception prior to setting up appointments with the wedding reception venues; I am simply saying that it can be exceedingly beneficial to keep an open mind. The professionals that you meet (all wedding vendors who will be helping you with your reception for that matter) will be able to offer important advice/suggestions from the moment they meet you, through the fruition of the event. You might meet someone who works for a wedding reception venue that you just “click” with from the get-go….and if you are not open to new ideas, you could be passing up a marvelous opportunity to make the most of that individual’s knowledge. Experienced wedding planners / catering managers can be invaluable as they have “lived” through endless events. Here at the Sioux Falls Convention Center, we provide you with a dedicated event manager to work with you side by side as you are deciding which path to take with all of the wedding reception details. All of our event managers have years of experience and are happy to share their knowledge with you and be a key role in achieving a successful wedding reception. A first-class event manager/wedding planner can offer copious suggestions in regards to everything from room diagrams, to food and beverage selections, event timing/guest flow, table configurations, napkin folds, and the list goes on…and on! If you have an open mind, and are open to suggestions on how to pull off an amazing and memorable wedding reception, give me a call today at the Sioux Falls Convention Center!
