Solution Based Is The New Way

Solution Based Is The New Way


Recently I was having a conversation with a good friend of mine talking about problems at an event he performed at recently. We all know as entertainers that starting off on the wrong foot at an event can be difficult at best to overcome. If you are stressed about your gear or working with that photographer that you don’t get along with very well… it can easily affect your performance with that couple and their guests if you let it. In this scenario, the bride and groom had a Friday wedding ceremony scheduled for 6:30pm, full Catholic mass and told him that they would be at the reception facility at 7:30pm at the latest. Now… we all know that everything doesn’t always go as planned on a wedding day, and that day was no different. The bride and groom ended up not showing up at the reception hall until 8pm, dinner was late and guests who did not attend the ceremony were left wondering why dinner was over a half hour late.

The overall success of the event was altered from the very start because the bride and groom didn’t have a trusted advisor working with them to ensure a successful outcome to their event. Most couples have never been married before and are between the ages of 21 and 29 when they first get married. A young woman from this demographic gets engaged and all of a sudden she’s in charge of planning her first FIVE FIGURE party ever. It’s no wonder that entertainment is not high on her list of priorities because everything so far in her life has been about remembering through a photograph or fashion in a magazine or TV show through college.

Most of brides thrown in this situation have no idea where to start….much less where to place priorities without having the foresight to see how their uninformed decisions will impact their party.  We’ll continue with Part 2 of this post next week.
