That’s right, Wedding and Event Planners know the answers to questions people don’t know to ask. This doesn’t mean we always know everything. By having the answers, we don’t always have the immediate exact answer because sometimes they vary per situation. Rather, we know how to find the answers quickly and efficiently so we can keep on planning.
One example of something most people don’t generally think of when planning their wedding (or any other event with a guest(s) of honor for that matter) is their placement. Placement?? You read correctly. When a professional photographer is involved, it’s great to have a planner who somewhat understands what a photographer would suggest as far as the best placement for the happy couple when getting their photos taken. Having a planner who works well with photographers and understands the importance of collaborating prior to any event is also key (but that’s an entirely different topic). Where is the most natural light? What is in the background? How can we create variety? What is the easiest path of travel to make the most of your time?
For anyone who’s planned a large event or a wedding, you know how costs can seemingly just start to add up and keep on going. When searching for a venue, there are A LOT of questions that need to be asked in order to find out just how many costs you may be hit with when that final invoice is sent. City Social is the exclusive event coordination team for the Ballroom at Sauced in Haynie’s Corner in Evansville, Indiana, and the following is a sample list of questions and answers that you should/could ask a potential venue, and the respective answers are all about the Ballroom at Sauced (formerly known as Kirby’s).
