Community Over Competition is important for so many reason but here is today's example. One of these babes is @greenappleeventco, her bestie was getting married and she called me to see if I could help. Whenever you can build relationships with your competitors and create friends instead. You will build a stronger community, network, industry and business. There is enough work for us all.
Has a new planner or planner in your area reached out to connect?? Go! Grab coffee, lunch or wine! Making friends with likeminded people is so much better then competing with them.
Also it's so nice to have a great referral when your booked, sending your leads to friends ensures they will still be in good hands.

Thanks for following along behind the scenes of yesterday's wedding for LVL's @ashleycarros! Missed it?! Catch up in our stories now!
We know you often get to do friends and family's weddings when you are getting started... here are a few things to remember:

1. Communication is key! Don't assume because you know someone so well you know exactly what they want. Be sure to get detailed answers for how they want their day to be
2. Bring a support team! When you're close with the couple you often spend more time with them throughout the day. Not wanting to miss the important moments. Bring an extra assistant to ensure everything gets done and you get to be present.
3. Have a wrap up plan. Many couples want you to turn into a guest at the end of the night. That can be possible but be sure your venue and vendors know as well as make sure your assistant team know all that they need to do to ensure everything runs smoothly through the very end.

What have you learned from doing friends and family weddings? Our community is built on learning from each other, share below!! ⬇️

Planning a wedding somewhere tropical like Hawaii?? A great tip to share with your clients is to create some type of shade if there isn't some natural cover. We love doing canopies with draping which creates a light and open air effect without blocking the beautiful views. #guestexperience #wedding #destinationwedding #destinationweddingtips #keepguestshappy #keepguestscool

We are really excited about Summer around here 🙌🏻

First look for the win ✨
As a planner, it's really important to talk couples through their pre ceremony photo options so they can determine what is best for them. There are so many benefits to a private first look like this powerful image. ❤️ 📷 @moodphotovideo

Private estate weddings have so many options for making the event feel like home. I love the front door as the altar. ✨

I maybe cry at father of the bride speeches and father daughter dances.. 😏 fathers are special! Today we honor all the amazing fathers for their strength, wisdom, and unconditional love and support. Hugs to you if Father's Day is a hard day for you. May you cherish a loved one who filled the shoes of that role in your life or spend time remembering your loved one who has passed on. Cheers to you dads!#happyfathersday 📷 @jasminestar

Our friends @everylastdetailblog with a great article to help you articulate the value of hiring a planner 🙌🏻 At ELD, they think every couple deserves to have a wedding planner- because everyone deserves to have a wonderful, stress free wedding planning process. But they also know there are many who insist that their mom/friend/cousin/aunt/etc- or even themselves- can handle things. Sure, of course they can- but there are also things that a wedding planner can do that your mom/aunt/friend can’t do. Go to the link in their profile to find out what those things are! #eldweddingtruths #weddingplanning
