Your Wedding During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Your Wedding During the Coronavirus Pandemic   The current coronavirus pandemic has caused such severe disruptions right across the globe – and if your wedding is planned for this time whether in the UK or a destination wedding, it can feel pretty confusing as to what to do next and best proceed, if that were only possible. This is a rapidly changing situation, with the government making snap changes and new directives as the day opens and closes.so it’s impossible to say for sure what will happen in the long term. As of Monday 23rd March 2020, the UK is in partial to total lockdown. This is far more extensive than the previous advice to minimise social contact. UK citizens have been ordered to stay in their homes apart from for very specific reasons, including: Medical need Shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible Travelling to work, but if possible you should work from home One form of exercise per day, alone or with members of your household Social gatherings have been banned, and that specifically includes weddings. The Government has said they will review the lockdown restrictions in about three weeks. They have informed us that they could reduce the severity of the lockdown, however, we feel @designerweddingplanner that these will indeed be increased as the coronavirus pandemic is expected to reach a peak in 10 days to 2 weeks. If you have a wedding booked over the next few months, realistically your choice is between full cancellation or postponement for a later date. “I would suggest you consider postponing weddings between now and the start of July– it’s possibly too soon to decide what to do with weddings after this date. All we can do is take it day by day,” says Shola Ade of the Designer Wedding Planner. The UK Government also says that if one person in a household has symptoms, everyone living there has to stay at home for 14 days. If you live on your own, you must stay at home for seven days. For more information and updated advice, consult the NHS website. It is, for this reason, we would always advise you have a very proactive and hands-on wedding planner to help you in rough times and in good. They will assist you and help answer your concerns when it comes to your wedding. 1. Stay up to date with current information It is important to make sure you’re up to speed with developments, given how quickly advice can change. For the latest updates in the UK, make sure you visit the gov.uk website, and for travel advice, check the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website. especially if you have a destination wedding booked. 2. Contact your venue and/or your wedding planner Communication has always been key, and more so in this situation. If you’re getting married in the UK within the next few months, you need to check your contract and then talk to your venue, and indeed your wedding planner (if you have now) will be able to do this on your behalf. At the moment, the UK Government has banned social gatherings – and weddings come into that category. Obviously, the safety of you and your guests must come first. One of the last weddings in London that we know of had over 200 guests, and a few of them were then diagnosed with he Coronavirus and were taken ill following that party. Bear in mind that your venue and planner are here to help you. They may well be dealing with a deluge of queries at the moment, so try to be patient, even though it’s understandable that you want answers and you are anxious to get your wedding issues sorted. Options to discuss include whether you can postpone. “Have a date in mind and check they are those dates available,” says Shola from Designer Wedding Planner“. Ask if there are any penalties for changing the date.  and also if the venue will require any further information from you. It might be that provided the change of date happens within the following 12 months, your venue will change the date for free, but after that, there might be additional charges.” If you are able to postpone, get every detail of the change confirmed in writing with an amended contract of agreement. make sure your wedding planner is able to have oversight of this so she will be able to guide you through, and support you before you sign. If your only option is to go for a full, and you feel it would be unwise to go ahead given the UK government’s position, find out what the financial implications are, and what will be expected of you to cover.

Our Surprise Proposal

Our Surprise Proposal Planning The initial meeting It was a sunny day in August when we got the call through that we were required to put our heads together to help plan a surprise proposal. We discussed the finer points with the boyfriend as he really wanted to surprise his girlfriend with the ring. He really wanted to put a ring on it as the song says. We met with the boyfriend and walked through the famous Primrose Hill in North West London and immediately saw that it was a massive park. Everyone who was anyone had their dogs with them, and they were enjoying the evening. The moment they walked through the park gates, the dogs were let free to run and wander. I am simply so scared of dogs, and have been since I was a child. This was going to be my challenge, but anyway I had to secure this young suiter’s confidence, to reassure him that we will be great as usual in setting the scene for the proposal. it was apparent that we didn’t have long to plan as the sunny days were fast becoming a thing of last year and summer was fast going.   Setting the date The date was set for September, but had to set two potential dates in case it rained on the first date of choice. We had planned for a small secluded section of the park, and we planned where the boyfriend would enter the park and the long walk up the park path to get to where we would be all set up. I advised the boyfriend to book a nice restaurant for after the proposal they had a nice meal to go to…. fingers crossed she said yes otherwise we would have to go for the meal ourselves. On the week prior to the planned date we worked with eventdecorhire to plan the many candles we were set to put in the park. We had lots of tea-lights, balloons and string lights  to hang from the trees and large lanterns to place along the pathway leading to the heart shaped lights. Its D Day On the early Sunday evening, we started our plan – the section of park we had pre-chosen was still available and more or less clean. We met with the photographer who was also the boyfriend’s close friend and the videographer who set up their places within a few minutes. Then came the switching on of the many, many lights, tea-lights and candles, hanging the lights on the tall tress was a bit challenging. We had to make sure they were all hanging straight and ready to work. We didn’t want to set up too early as the candles would not show up to full effect, and may all go out as it was quite a windy day. The boyfriend was due to start making his way from about 6.30pm and should arrive to us by 7pm – then he messaged and said he would be arriving by 6.45pm. We were not quite ready and were still having issues with the candles which kept blowing out with the windy evening. Then we had the call to say the Boyfriend was entering the park with his unwitting girlfriend. Entering the Park We had set everything up as planned – the lanterns were lit and lining the pathway. We had a big heart shape with tea lights and the candles and there was music playing in the background. Passersby kept asking what we were doing and why we had lit so many candles with champagne and ice bucket on a blanket in the middle. We had to keep people away from our area so a big crowd started to gather- we had to keep an eye out for our boyfriend as he was walking his girlfriend along the long pathway to our planned area.

How much to budget for flowers for a USA wedding is a very important question? Flowers are a way of adding visual texture and colour to a wedding, of pulling together disparate styles and hues all in one glorious, beautiful package? When it comes to the overall cost of a wedding, flowers can end up being just a drop in the bucket. Consider that many of today’s weddings cost about $25,000 to throw—and that about 8 percent of that budget is generally devoted to flowers. Even though they may not gobble up much of the budget, flowers can quickly get more expensive than planned. That’s why it’s important to consider flower type and season of your wedding before making your selection. This guide helps you determine how to match your wedding date with in-season flowers. Your wedding flowers will most certainly be a large part of your wedding budget, so it’s important to find wedding centrepieces and wedding bouquets that you love, can afford and are in season. See photos of wedding flower arrangements for ideas and then find a local wedding florist to pull it off for your wedding day.

Downton Abbey Styled Wedding Shoot

DOWNTON ABBEY STYLED WEDDING SHOOT If you are living in this century, you will have heard of the fabulous BBC miniseries Downton Abbey and which will also shortly be a major film, which has captured the hearts of the British and USA viewing public with so many brides coming to see us at the showroom asking for this or that item which reflects the era around the time of Downton Abbey. The Edwardian style is very much in vogue and a classic which has a new younger following. We were asked by the lovely ladies Charlotte, Nikki, Christina and the team at The Foundling Museum in London requesting if we would possible do a styled wedding shoot in their venue as they wanted to move into covering more delightful weddings , and felt we at Designer Wedding Planner could bring out the beauty of the venue to a new audience of potential brides and grooms. We then had to go back to the drawing board to shortlist our catalogue of wedding vendors who we felt would step up and collaborate with us in achieving the Downton Abbey Style Shoot. Our ‘A’Team went to work immediately to send in their drafts for the shoot. Working closely with Mary who was able to create the set working with the venue to ensure authenticity and realism to the time gone by. Kate Edmondson agreed immediately as she had her new collection she knew exactly which gown would suit the Downton Abbey look, but which would also give a current and fashionable stylish look. The Ronald Joyce wedding gown was supplied by the delightful ladies at Bell’Amore in London along with the long veil by Enzo from their Private Label by ‘G’ Kenneth Winston. Their gowns were floaty and so feminine with lots of layers and diamante details all over. I am so grateful to this amazing team for using their unbelievably creativity and talent to make this idea come to life in a way that’s even more beautiful than I could have imagined! Every minute detail of the shoot was entrenched in the stylish detail of the elegant era. With the makeup very light and the lipstick only a slight tinge of colour using a colour palette which was reminiscent of the days gone by. The creative team worked so well together as they are all much sought after professionals in their own right – Tino Antoniou Photography, and Tai from Love Exposed Photography showed they were masters of their craft and worked so well together to create the stunning lighting to set the scene well. Mary from Event Décor Hire was the creative professional I can’t thank their creative team enough as Mary helps many couples to plan their wedding décor with class and beauty. The floral designs and the banqueting table fully designed, and were so delightfully set with the quilted tablecloths and napkins in a bronzy gold colour. To complete the look. The beautiful designer shoes, from Rachel Simpson Bridal were from their new designer range which worked so well with the look we wanted to create. couture bridal gowns were supplied by Kate Edmondson who designs and hand makes all her gowns, and the other designer gowns from Bellamore in Bexleyheath London. The stunning jewellery were kindly supplied to us- with the words any stylist wants to hear “you can have any piece you need for your shoot” Glitzy Secret Jewellery supplied the diamante encrusted head pieces, drop diamante necklaces, with the gorgeous earrings to match and the bejewelled cuffs which were stunning, and with each piece so carefully handcrafted they showed an opulence which really suited the Downton Abbey era perfectly. We couldn’t have had the look without the makeup and hair so expertly created for us by the lovely Kristina and Kasia, and so bang on trend. Our ‘groom’ was the talk of the day as he was a young model who fitted into the handmade men’s designer suits from Christian English bespoke suits with ease, whilst creating the character to match so well with our 2 female ‘bride’ models. Our Gold Cake lovingly created by Ann’s designer cakes, was so lush and dramatic and went well with the gold and browns colouring around the Foundling Museum who hosted us for the day. We feel that every single stylish detail was captured and the elegance of the era gloriously displayed in our stylish shoot. We thoroughly enjoyed bring this to you for your enjoyment. If you love this style shoot as much we did, and you would like to request our help in planning your wedding or event, please make contact and we will be so happy to work with you to create a stunning work for you also.   Or if you would like us to help you create your own style shoot, then simply get in touch. We are good at what we do.                  

Covid19 crisis as a Wedding Planner

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pyjamas, and often meet to gossip or share ideas. On the other hand, we bossed ourselves around, set impossible goals, and demanded longer hours than office jobs usually entail. It was the ultimate “flextime,” in that it depended on how flexible we felt each day, given deadlines, distractions, and workaholic crescendos. Aristotle made several efforts to explain how moral conduct contributes to the good life for human agents. Shola from Designer Wedding Planner says “it helps our sanity to be roductive and ensure our business goals are met in a timely manner”. The coronavirus and how the wedding industry is going to stay afloat is quite a hot topic right now. Working from home and during the Covid19, we will have emails coming thick and fast with panicking brides and grooms not sure what is going to happen to their special day. It all seems so unreal and confusing. Having been in business with the Wedding Academy for 10 years and a further 9 running my own unrelated business in child care, business in addition to that, it’s safe to say I’ve weathered a few business storms, and I understand just how to get through them. But nothing really compares to the coronavirus and the way it’s affecting the industry which I have such a lot of respect for- the wedding industry. Like you, I’m a small business person and whether I like it or not the coronavirus is having an impact on everyone I know in business, myself included. As a wedding and event consultant, I feel I need to be able to support those newer business owners who are coming up in the ranks of wedding professionals. I want to help and offer whatever advice I can to hopefully let people see how they can survive this. There’s no getting away from the fact that coronavirus is changing things – changing lives and the impact is still not being fully felt as yet. In the UK we are already on partial lockdown with only permission to go outside of the house for 4 reasons. – To exercise for a short time, to get essential provisions of food, to go to work only if it is not possible to work from home, and to go to help someone who is in need of support.  all non-essential shops have been closed for the past 3 weeks, along with restaurants, cafes, cinemas, sporting centres and anywhere with gatherings of over 2 people. We have all learnt how to work from home and adapt our creative thing to be just as productive. Weddings are being cancelled, flights are being stopped and any type of travel has been fully stopped. So how do we deal with the coronavirus in the wedding industry? How can we weather this storm as wedding professionals? Well, first of all, don’t overreact. Although that is easier said than done! Take a long deep breath and think about how you’d want to be treated if you were affected. As wedding pros, we’re in a service-based industry and now more than ever we need to remember that. The couples you are working with are going to be extremely nervous, worried and looking for immediate answers from you. Remember to be empathetic and sympatthetic.…this is their wedding as well as your business. Think about how you can help them and what you can offer them through this time. Put your own feelings about your business aside for a short while and show the couple that you totally understand their plight and their distress. You may well get cancellation requests but is that really the best thing to do? Would it be better to postpone rather than cancel? Before you blindly hand out advice to your clients make sure you take some advice of your own. Here’s are two links to some great legal advice and content from the experts: Contractual Facts Not Social Media Fictions For Wedding Suppliers Coronavirus Best Practices And Clauses To Have In Your Contracts The way you handle your business in times of crisis says a lot about you as a business owner and about the longevity you can have. Challenges in business will always be thrown at you and like anything in business you need to learn from these challenges and make sure you are ready for them if and when they rear their ugly heads again. Be prepared – get ready. This is a good mantra to have. It’s always better to be proactive than reactive. Right now one of the best things you can do is read up on how best to prepare and protect your business both now and in the future. These three resources will definitely help so take the time to read them: Webinar hosted by Honeybook: Coronavirus & Your Business Coronavirus (COVID-19) and your Event Business from Sage Wedding Pros Covid-19 – A Practical Guide for the Wedding Industry There’s no easy or quick fix here and nobody can really predict what’s going to happen or how long it will take before things go back to some form of normality. What you can do though is get rid of anything that you don’t need or haven’t used for over 1 year and see what else you can do till things even out again. Here are a couple of ideas to help your wedding businesses bottom line: Put it through the membership test How many unneeded or unused memberships do you have right now? And that includes unused gym memberships, software memberships, and anything else you’re paying for.
