The 40-hour wedding
Have you ever heard of a 40-hour wedding? Really? It happens at almost every wedding that I perform. It takes a lot of time and work to create a fun wedding. Let me break it down…
Before the planning even begins, there are phone calls, emails, and other correspondence. Once we have agreed to an initial consultation, I want to know who you are. I want to hear about your dreams, your expectations, and concerns. We explore ways to create the greatest positive impact for you and your guests.
Then, there are 2 planning meetings, music research, downloading of music, programming, Itinerary reviews, modifications, rewrites, contacting and working with the venue, the photographer, and caterer, not to mention the hours I spent planning on my own.
This wedding includes a ceremony, cocktails, reception, lighting, and a photo booth.
