A Look At The Necessities Of Decoration For Any Large Event
From a wedding to a large business meeting to a quince to a birthday party, there are so many large events that go on in the world. In fact, there are more than 44,000 weddings alone each and every weekend here in the United States, adding up to nearly two and a half billion weddings over the course of a single year. Conferences are also incredibly popular, with more than 62% of all current event organizers who are currently working in the field working for conferences at some point in time, if not with relative frequency. Aside from conferences, corporate functions are also incredibly popular, making up the second most popular type of event planning, something that is backed up by data that shows that more than 61% of all event planners will work on corporate events.
Of course, however, weddings are incredibly popular to plan – and incredibly lucrative, as the average wedding held here in the United States will now cost more than $35,000 by the end of the day, a sum of money that is truly stupendous. And as there are so many components to the typical wedding, having an event planner on board is often very necessary. This will be particularly the case if the wedding is to be of a large size (on average, a wedding will have just over 135 guests, though some weddings here in the United States will have considerably more – and are therefore likely to require considerably more planning at the hands of a professional event planner).
First and foremost, the wedding planner will help the couple to choose a venue. As more than 30% of couples getting married in the United States will choose to get married in a religious institution, church weddings are quite common. From the church stage to the stained glass windows, church weddings are often quite beautiful and offer require little in the way of decoration. The church stages (and, particularly in larger churches, the church stages are typically present, as the church stages are often ideal for the purposes of normal church services, though of course said church stages are also used for events like weddings as well as events like baptisms and confirmations) help to set the stage, so to speak, for the wedding, as church stages can help to raise the bride and groom above the rest, clearly putting them on display.
So with church stages and beautiful architecture, weddings held in churches or other religious institutions are relatively easy to plan as far as the ceremony goes. However, weddings that are held elsewhere are likely to need a little bit more in the way of decoration. Ideally, the couple and the wedding planner should first find out what the venue themselves are willing to offer. Some will provide just chairs while others have a special space already set up and ready to be decorated for weddings to be officiated.
But in such cases, more decoration is likely needed. Such decoration can range from sheer drapes for a wedding to table skirt clips, and all elements of design can be gathered with the help of the wedding planner. A wedding planner can look at something like drapery fabric for the ceremony space or even the reception space and can help the couple not only to find the fabric that best suits their vision for their wedding day, but best suits their budget as well, something that is just as important (if not even more so, to be honest).
The wedding planner can also help to see to the smaller details aside from the ones that have already been provided (such as church stages and perhaps even seating, depending on the venue itself). For instance, a wedding planner can organize items like backdrop poles and upright pole covers, items that are not likely to be particularly interesting to pick out in the first place. This not only takes some of the stress away from the couple in regards to wedding planning, but will also likely increase their enjoyment of the planning process by letting them focus on the fun things.
