A recap of the wonderful WPIC Learning Event that the Royal Canadian Military Institute hosted for WPICAlumni.
Often times there are misconceptions about our work and what it entitles. Of course, I would love to say that all we do is show up, look pretty and carry around a clipboard. But that is NEVER the case.
We are thrilled to announce that the WPIC Wedding & Event Designer
Certification Course has officially launched!
The number of LGBTQ2S+ couples looking to get married continues to increase, how can you make sure your business is inclusive and welcoming for these clients?
Communication is a challenge no matter what industry you’re in, but in the wedding industry, it can be an absolute whirlwind. As wedding planners, we work with clients who are experiencing a big time in their lives. As you already know, planning a wedding is a huge undertaking. Your brides and grooms are understandably stressed and confused at times throughout this process, and it’s your job to keep lines of communication open.
It’s obvious that potential clients want to know the cost of a wedding planner but lately, on more than one occasion, I’ve been asked how I set my fees. The current trend amongst the industry would be to respond with ” I don’t have to justify my pricing or my value.” but friends, it is my job to educate my (potential) clients. That’s the role I choose to take on, and it starts with helping to understand the investment you will make while hiring your service-based wedding vendors and the return you will receive.
Winter in Toronto can feel never-ending, so the goal of this shoot was to bring some warmth and life back into the city (and our souls) while waiting for spring to roll around!
If you’ve ever said “planner shhmanner… I don’t need one”, please keep reading. If you’ve ever said “I think I want a wedding planner”, keep reading. If you’ve ever said “Morgan did my wedding and I don’t know what I would have done without her-she is so awesome at what she does-and so funny-and smart-and a superhero goddess…” then thank-you, I’ll pay you later.
Bridezilla… The ultimate insult to any woman planning her wedding…People like to throw this term around and use it to keep ‘nagging’ brides in check. Remove all the clichès and put aside the jokes and there is a very fine line between bring a bridezilla and just a reasonable human who wants the best service possible.
