As a professional wedding planner you make it your goal to coordinate, plan and perfect every aspect of the Big Day! We understand you work tirelessly on a never ending “to do” list, from conception to clean up. You confirm dates, times & venues, develop themes, select & arrange décor, schedule transportation, prepare guest lists, create budgets, negotiate with DJ’s and bands, manage contractors, supervise caterers, coordinate vendor arrivals and so much more. We understand that you are completely committed to your clients and their satisfaction. Most importantly we understand that more times than not, a problem will arise. One last minute change, cancellation or error can have a snowball effect on every part of the special day.
The Big Day arrives, you have arranged for 300 chairs to be delivered and set up in an outdoor ceremony. Problem; you count 250. There is not enough time to have the 50 additional chairs delivered & nowhere in sight to pull them from. Being a Wedding Planner, you are prepared to stay calm in high pressure situations. You do the best you can in the short time you have to make the optimum choice(s) to rectify what has happened. The remainder of the event goes perfectly and you make those mental notes to ensure you won’t have that problem again. Unfortunately you soon find out the happy couple isn’t so happy when contacted by their attorney who informs you of a breach of contract suit. And while it is understood the error was created by the rental company, his clients (formally your clients) believe you are ultimately responsible for that error which caused confusion and frustration to the guests as well as great embarrassment to them.
With the DRAMATIC increase in litigation, will you be prepared when, not if, a similar situation occurs to you or your company.
A Lawsuit can have the single greatest impact on your current and future earnings. The effects are long lasting. Even if allegations are found to be groundless, thousands of dollars may be needed to defend the lawsuit. Litigation can bankrupt a smaller company or individual. Whether you are new to the industry or have been in business for years, you need to be prepared and protect yourself!
