How do you stay up-to-date with Alberta’s wedding trends and vendor options, and what resources do you rely on? *
I am always on Google and looking at other Facebook groups to see what other Brides are looking for.
What advice would you give to couples who are just starting the wedding planning process?
First, take a breath! Then the next thing is to set a budget, especially for Venue, photography and catering if needed. The majority of the budget will be on these 3 Vendors.
How do you manage timelines and budgets for your clients, and what tools do you use to keep everything organized?
I use an Excel spreadsheet for my clients to help everyone make sure everything and everyone is on the same page.
Can you share some tips for couples planning a wedding in a remote or rural area of Alberta?
Start looking at venues at least 1 year in advance a lot of venues book up very fast. So if you really like the venue, book it! Do not hesitate!
How do you ensure that your clients’ wedding visions are reflected in the final outcome, and what is your approach to handling differences in opinions or ideas?
I speak with my clients to understand their vision and go thru all the details of how they would like their decor set up. We mock-up and take pictures to ensure that it is exactly how they want it set up.
How do you handle unexpected situations or emergencies that may arise on the wedding day, and what kind of support do you offer your clients?
At Enchanted Bliss Events, I calmly handle any situation that arises and do the best I can to figure out another solution.
