During this internship I have gained experience in Wedding Planning, Creative work and coordination of events. I have also been exposed to areas like venues, timelines, budgeting and administration work.
My greatest accomplishment from my experience has just been how to interact with vendors and clients and how to create an event that is unique to the clients specific style. It has been very rewarding to sit down with clients at meetings and help them to create something unique and special to them. It is rewarding when we are able to incorporate the bride and grooms different styles into one design/event.
My greatest lessons learned from my experience are to be timely and communicative. I have found this to be very important because of all the different vendors you are working with. It also ensures the client that you care about their special day/event.
What advice would you give?
My advice for future students would be to go into everything open minded and ready to learn. It is important to ask questions and create relationships with clients and vendors. Lastly, ask for feedback from your supervisor so you know what you are doing well and what you can improve on.
