My main in-office duties included going through contracts, posts, and other documents made by the company to ensure our inclusivity. Other in-office tasks varied from researching quotes on different venues and rental services to running errands for upcoming weddings. I also assisted on a variety of floral designs for our clients. Finally, on wedding days I would help with the set-up and take down of decor and making sure the overall event ran smoothly.
I learned a lot about the wedding industry and event planning in general. Weddings are such a huge part of our lives and couples put so much into their special day. I think the biggest lessons I learned were that the client always comes first and making sure they are happy is a huge priority. And finally I learned that the guests do not see what happens behind the scenes so work your butt off to create a perfect event.
In the event planning industry, especially with weddings, there are a lot of different people/companies involved and keeping on top of everyone can sometimes be very challenging; so stay organized! Another huge piece of advice would be that the magic is in the details, so make sure they are perfect. Finally in wedding planning it is sometimes hard to stay creative when you have to follow the clients wishes, so try to get into their mindset to be able to execute their vision of the event.
