As a wedding planner you know that it isn’t necessarily the big things like wedding cars, cakes and venues that cause the biggest headaches to organise, its the little things – the details that have to be so precise to give your weddings that edge of professionalism and personalisation which will ensure your brides and grooms highly recommend you.
For a small outlay it is worth investing in some wedding accessories that you can use again and again and offer to the bride and groom as part of their wedding package – or hire out as you see fit, especially as some wedding venues do not have these to hand!
These little extras help to make the day go smoothly – for example a small silver tray to present the wedding rings on, a vanity mirror to give to the matron-of-honour to ensure the bride always has a mirror at hand, a candelabra for the top table, a gorgeous white wedding letter box for the happy couples cards and gifts and a steady supply of easels! In fact, easels are my ‘must have’ items for versatility and practicality on the day.
Easels are simply great for display purposes. Choose a large ornate beautiful easel to display your seating plan (or alternatively a distressed gold painted easel depending on the look of the wedding) or choose twin cherub easels to display the seating plan and menu flanking the doors to the wedding breakfast.
There are also some amazing small easels for table tops to display the menu, name of the table or love quote – whatever the occasion demands! At Vintage Vibe these are sold in packs of 6 and investing in these will ensure you don’t have to rely on anyone else to provide them which make such a difference to the ‘worry factor’ in wedding planning.
By investing in the little things, like easels, you don’t have to rely on venues to provide them and you know the quality and condition of the products in advance. You can show the bride and groom before the big day to enable them to visualize the little details of their wedding. They will know they are in safe hands with a planner that is so meticulous, so think about making a small investment to help secure more business and take a look at Vintage Vibe’s wedding products that could be yours to offer brides and grooms (and venues!) for years to come.
