Niagara Wedding Planning: Why I choose to take on fewer clients
Hi friends! This is kind of a two-in-one post here to let you know our availbility for Niagara Wedding Planning in 2018 and also to talk about why I choose to limit the availability we open for clients.
Above you can see the availability we have open. Dates available means I am fairly open for specific dates, I may have a floral-only or a smaller event already booked but the rest of the month is flexible. Ideally, I only take on 1-2 full planning contracts per month. If you’re looking for floral-only service I have more avaialbiltiy in the month for those. If you see a month that has only specific dates left, it’s because I am already booked for full planning in that month and are only available for the dates listed. If you are looking for floral-only and you don’t see your date, please do send an inquiry so I can let you know if we have a date we can sneak you in for!
Here’s why I limit the amount of full contracts we take on in a year and even each month:
- My main goal, or mission if you will, is to serve my clients in the best way possible. In order to focus on each client I have, I have to limit the amount of work I take on. I want my clients to feel like they are my only clients and it’s impossible for me to do that in the way I want if I have too many projects happening at the same time.
- Another big reason is to avoid burn-out. There is this thing in the wedding industry called a wedding hangover (not kidding, look it up). After a wedding day, vendors wake up feeling like they’ve been hit by a bus and for me at least, it takes a couple days to recouperate from that. I typically work a 14-16 hour day for my clients, running non-stop for 10-11 hours of that day + the 4 days of floral and planning work leading up to the wedding day. I need to take care of my body and only do that a couple times a month.
- Being burnt out and over worked stifles creativity and makes us less passionate about something we actually love. I know that I do my best work when I get to take a break to breathe.
Essentially, I choose to work with a smaller group of clients so I can spend more time dedicated to each couple. Because it is my goal to create such an intimate, curated and boutique experience for my clients, I take the quality over quantity approach when choosing dates and clients to work with.
If you are a 2018 bride (or groom!) and you’re looking for a highly curated approach and attentive wedding planner, designer and florist and you see availability above, please do send an email! I would truly love to chat with you about all things wedding and to see if we are a good fit! If you’re looking for florals-only, know that I have more flexibility with dates!
