Client Happenings: Viva Las Vegas

You’re in luck, because what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. Our team recently traveled to Sin City with the Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company for Wedding MBA, a wedding business expo. High profile wedding and event planner, Debi Lilly, was also onsite to share her expertise with the wedding planning industry. She provided her “Wedding Planning Checklist” during her 10 minute Wed Talk presentation at the conference. Here are a few highlights:

  1. Share a Save the Date. Send Save the Date cards to all invited to the wedding, not just out-of-town guests. This builds excitement, sets the tone for a big, fun celebration, and ensures the date is set on guests’ calendars.
  2. Recommend Jewelry Insurance to Protect The Symbols of Their Ever After. Worry about one less thing while planning your wedding, or even going on your honeymoon by insuring your engagement and wedding rings. Certain homeowners’ policies may only provide limited jewelry protection, and may not cover damage or loss and mysterious disappearance, so it’s important to check your coverage or switch to a separate jewelry insurance policy, like one from Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company, the nation’s leading jewelry insurance specialists for more than 100 years. Their worldwide, comprehensive coverage can go beyond standard homeowners insurance and warranties and provides same “kind and quality” repairs and replacements.
  3. Create an Event That’s All About THEM. This is their moment to share. From the officiant and readings, to location and music, design a unique, personal ceremony that reflects the two of them in every way. You can even create custom his and hers cocktails by using modern mixology and incorporating their favorite styles and flavors into a “themed” happy hour. Don’t let the party die down between the wedding and reception – keep the momentum going by creating a cocktail hour all about them and kick-off their party in style!
  4. Provide a Welcome Gift Upon Arrival. This is such a warm, thoughtful way to have guests arrive at the hotel and check into a standard room. It can be as simple as a gift bag to include a handwritten local postcard, local snacks and beverages, maps, travel brochures and more.
  5. Create a Unique Wedding Hashtag. Make sure their wedding hashtag is unique by checking Facebook, Twitter and Instagram before the big day. Whether they create a simple sign to encourage guests to post their favorite moments or include the hashtag in their wedding program, don't miss a thing on social media by helping curate all posts and images for the wedding celebration.

Happy wedding planning!
