Sask Ever After:What is your favorite part of the wedding day as a wedding planner?
Jaclyn Baum: Our favourite part of the wedding day is handling every minor & major detail in order to ensure the bride & groom have the best day possible. Seeing them smiling & laughing throughout the day is confirmation that we’ve done our job!
SEA: What inspired you to be in the wedding industry?
JB: I have attended weddings for years, & have witnessed brides stress over so much throughout the course of the wedding day & the planning. I wanted to help brides to enjoy their day & the planning process leading up to the day. Planning is meant to be enjoyable, so I really wanted to make each bride’s planning experience fun!
SEA: What advice would you give to a bride when choosing a wedding planner for her wedding?
JB: A lot of vendors offer the same services, but you will be spending a lot of time with certain ones, such as your wedding planner & your photographer. Make sure your personalities click – determine who you want to spend the whole day with. Secondly, do not price shop. It is not worth sacrificing quality, the cheapest option is rarely the best one!
SEA: Educate future brides on why your business is necessary to their wedding day.
JB: A wedding planner is there from start-to-finish to assist with all aspects of planning. We have comprehensive to-do lists, budgeting tools & the experience necessary to make the planning seamless. Having a wedding planner present on your wedding day is invaluable. It will ensure you & your groom are able to enjoy your day!
SEA: Favourite wedding you have ever been a part of? Maybe it was the setting or the theme of the wedding – what made the event memorable for you as their vendor?
JB: It’s impossible to choose one! This goes back to choosing your clients & having your clients choose you. I have clicked with each & every one of my clients, and now consider all past clients my friends.
SEA: Wedding day trends that you are hoping for this year or are seeing already in couples planing their weddings?
BE: Brunch Weddings & Friday Night Weddings! Saturday weddings are still the most common, but many couples are beginning to think outside of the box when it comes to dates. Brunch & Friday Night weddings are offering a solution to overbooked venues & budgeting issues.
