There are so many things to consider when planning an event, from vendors to photos to transportation of the bride and groom. And although you’ve likely thought most everything through, sometimes, one missed detail sends the whole thing into a tailspin. In this episode, Angela and her lead consultant Alison share a story about a wedding in which they didn’t have a solid plan for where the family would go for pre-wedding pictures. It resulted in 30-something of them crowding the area where they were setting up for the wedding, and thinking their insight would be helpful on the setup (which it was not).
