Photographer and Videographer…

A surprising stat of the week – the demand for a Photographer and for a Videographer and the differences in numbers.  That’s a huge gap!

Of course, these numbers aren’t always set in stone, so you can take them or leave them!  Survey results compliments of Proprietary Surveys, May 2009.

Sure does sound like a very low number of couples and the demand for a Videographer.

Did you have a Videographer and if you did or did not, what are your thoughts?

Stat of the Week – Thank You Cards

When couples purchase or pay for Thank You Cards:

Seems that most couples are right on track here, buying their Thank You card with plenty of time to fill them out and mail them as soon as they come back from the Honeymoon!

Time-saving tip: When you have a few free moments here & there before your wedding, address/stamp 3 or 4 each night until they are all done.  You will thank yourself after the wedding.

Adding a little “something”

Your event is just that – YOURS!  If you are planning from start to finish, – invitations, theme, colors, decor, food, and more – you get to choose all the elements that will come together in one grand finale.

I love to change it up here and there by not always sticking to the tried and true.  For example, at a wedding, the couple doesn’t have to wait and cut their cake long after dinner has been served.  Your guests want that cake!  Feel free to slice that thing up before dinner or during.  Gasp!  Yes, I said it and you can do it.

Here are some other ideas that let you add a little something to your event that will keep it original, fun and a cut above the rest…
