If you have been a guest or vendor at a CME wedding in the past year, you have probably met my awesome assistant Aubrey. She is an energetic, creative and detail-oriented person with a passion for photography! We did a little interview a few days ago about what she has found she likes about wedding coordinating, and what has surprised her…
What is your favorite part of a wedding day?
“I love the moment right before she walks down the aisle! Giving the bride words of encouragement, and making sure her dress is perfectly fluffed! It is a moment that is filled with so many good nerves.”
What surprised you the most about the day of a wedding?
“How good wedding food is! Haha!”
What is the hardest part of coordinating a wedding?
“Moving guests around! Asking guests to take their seats between cocktail hour and the reception, and then asking them to go outside for the send-off! You don’t want to be rude, but you can’t start the next part of the event until everyone has moved, and sometimes there are a few stragglers.”
How has your experience as a bride during your own wedding helped you with coordinating other weddings?
“It isn’t actually my experience as a bride, it’s my experience in logistics! There are a lot of moving parts on a wedding day, and a lot of different vendors to cooridnate.”
Okay… now for some rapid fire questions!
