Dressing for a wedding day is a serious and important issue for a wedding planner. This day makes very special demands on the appearance and clothing of both the wedding planner and his or her team.
At a wedding, your clothing should solve a number of problems. It should be:
- conspicuous, but not attracting unnecessary attention and making it clear that you are at work
- stylish but comfortable
- simple, but allow you to carry what you need to work with you.
- suitable for any weather
How to achieve this?
Use color. Neutral pastel colors of dim shades or dark colors will do. The latter work on the contrast: against the background of bright clothes you and your team will not attract unnecessary attention to yourself, but the bride or any guest will easily find your sight and be able to ask for help.
Many people refuse to wear black, and in vain. It allows the entire team to look stylish and professional, regardless of the style, size and type of clothing.
It is better that the style of clothing has strict, clear lines. Combined with the right color, they will clearly indicate both the solemnity of the moment and your professionalism. This is proven.
Always on hand
“Change on the job” is a frequently used, but not good option A wedding is not a place where a wedding planner has extra time. Everything is scheduled by the minute, and to carve out one more minute to change is to take that minute away from other things. Arriving at the venue already fully prepared is the most convenient option. In this case you can immediately get to work and do not think about that somewhere something crumpled, pressed, wrinkled, etc. Check all the nuances of your outfit (aka outfit) is much more convenient beforehand at home. And at work – everything is fine, you can start!
Only comfortable shoes
A wedding day is a day of increased physical activity. Here to correct, there to help, here to fetch, climb the stairs or get the box out of the van – the wedding planner has to manage everywhere, so the shoes must be perfect.
Of course, it’s best to arrive in the right shoes right away. Low-waisted shoes – they should be 100% comfortable and – this is important! – harmonious with your clothes.
A change of shoes is not a bad option. Then if the solemnity of the moment requires it of you, you can show up in your favorite high heels, and then change your shoes and do your job in shoes that do not restrict your movements.
But it’s better to be wearing comfortable shoes right away. I recommend ballet shoes. Soft, uninhibited movements, they are put on and take off with one movement of the hand, and have a lot of styles and colors and are in harmony with any outfit. And allow you to look professional.
In the heat and in the cold
People get married regardless of the time of year or climate zones. If it is in a cold climate, take care not to suffer from temperature extremes. You should definitely have an extra layer of clothing. The requirements for it are all the same: easy to put on and take off, harmonizes with your other clothes, looks decent, not conspicuous, but lets you know that you are at work. A black all-weather coat is the way to go. It makes you look stylish and authoritative. Just pick the right fit.
Free yourself from extra tasks
On your wedding day, your head is already busy with a lot of things, so forgetting an umbrella or a change of shoes at home, for example, is easy. Better yet, make a list ahead of time of what items and accessories you might need and get them in place at least one day before the wedding. Have them waiting for you in the back room and not overload your head with extra tasks.
Learn from the kangaroo
Pockets are a must-have item of wedding professional attire. They keep the little things you need with you at all times. Phone and headset, pen, small tools, etc. – Every wedding professional has their own list of important things that need to be in second reach. Make your list and make sure your clothes have pockets. Keep two important requirements in mind: pockets should not bulge and deform your clothes, and their contents should not rattle when you walk.
Something about purses
Alas, not everything you need fits in your pockets. Constantly carrying around, for example, a tablet or an intercom is not the best idea. A bag is the answer. But it should not be similar to a travel bag or backpack climber. Let it be a shoulder bag or a cross-body bag, but not parachute slings and not a bag behind the back – it spoils the whole impression. Opt for simple, comfortable and stylish options that will hold the essentials.
