Although I have a few weddings under my belt, I am still coeindsred a relatively new wedding planner. During my time in this wonderful industry, I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing vendors and I feel that I can always learn something from them as each wedding is so unique and has so many layers. Recently, I recommended a vendor to one of my clients and when I made the decision to recommend this vendor, I had checked out their work, asked for recommendations and already felt a great deal of respect for them. When we finally met in person to discuss the details, I was very disappointed to find that this person was treating me like I had no idea how much hard work was involved in the process of coming up with a design “it’s not as simple as throwing fabrics on the tables”…yes, I am aware of that, thank you. I have a lot of respect and admiration for designers and I know that there is a lot of work involved in the process. Yes, I am relatively new to the industry, but that only means that I work extra hard to ensure that everything I need to handle is handled professionally and timely, and dear experienced vendor, I expect the same from you. I will be the first to admit that there are things I may not know, but I am always open to suggestions from those that have been in the industry longer, although rest assured I don’t expect you to hold my hand through the process. I have learned that with years of experience comes the assumption that someone is professional, but unfortunately this is not always the case, although intertwined, professional and experienced are not the same thing. And yes, I realize that there are many new planners that are not professional, but I take offence to the fact that a lot of the time, all new planners are placed under the inexperienced and unprofessional category. Dear experienced vendors, as a “newer” planner, I respectfully ask that you please keep in mind that you too were new to the industry at one point. I have a love for the wedding industry and just because I have not been here as long as you have, it does not mean that I don’t have respect, passion and a deep desire to make my clients happy. Keep in mind that I could have recommended any other vendor to my client, but I chose to recommend you because I respect and admire your work and think you are a great fit for my client. Also keep in mind that I am a wedding planner and I never claimed to be a “designer, florist, DJ, etc.”, I came to you for your expertise and to work on the direction together. My job is to connect my clients with the best quality of vendors to suit their needs and budget and to put together a great team that will bring their dream wedding to life.
