An Intimate Wedding That Took Place at Jaspas Beach Club

For Charissa and Antoine, having an intimate wedding was always THE choice. When the pandemic broke out, the main challenge that they encountered was managing the constant change in social restrictions. Because of this, they had to put off a lot of the final decisions until the last minute, including booking their venue. Believe it or not, Charissa and Antoine were still looking for their venue two months before their wedding! Fortunately, they found Jaspas Beach Club, which fit all their requirements. The lovers are avid fans of the outdoors, especially beaches and mountains, so the quaint clearing by the beach with the mountains looming behind was the perfect spot to tie the knot! The scenery also matched their chosen ‘rustic Mediterranean meets modern Bohemian’ theme. Charissa adds, “We also loved the fact that our guests had to take a boat to arrive at our wedding. It felt like a mini island getaway for everyone, especially during this time when none of us can travel.”

To all other brides and grooms who are planning their special day and are struggling with the challenges brought about by the pandemic, here are some tips from the couple.

1) Find vendors who will listen to your needs and who will appreciate taking a personalized approach. It’s challenging as it is to plan a wedding with COVID-19, so working with vendors that are professional but also understanding really helped take the stress off.

2) Don’t forget to have fun! This is YOUR special day and you deserve to enjoy every second of it, even if things don’t completely fall in place. Your guests will only remember the fun moments in the end.

Wedding Vendor Etiquette 101: How To Build a Good Working Relationship with Your Vendors

It takes a lot of effort to plan your wedding and choosing the team that will help you is the first step to get the ball rolling. But once you’re all set and all vendors and suppliers an on board, how can you work with everyone seamlessly and efficiently?

Look at this way, the people who will be working behind the scenes to make your dream wedding come to life are your partners. Therefore, you want to build a healthy working relationship with each and every one of them. If you are able to achieve this from the get go, then your wedding planning journey will be a breeze. You might also end up finding lasting friendships when everything is over.

So, how do you build a good working relationship with your team? Read this.

 

 

To work seamlessly and effectively with your vendors, communicate expectations from the very beginning of your engagement. Make sure that your expectations, as well as vendors’ expectations from you are all agreed upon. This way, accountability is clear and each member in your wedding team knows what he or she must do. When responsibilities are clear, there are less chances of misunderstandings appearing along the way.

 

Once you’re already set expectations, give your vendors space to work. You might feel like messaging them all the time about your ideas, or asking for frequent face-to-face meetings to discuss regularly. Enthusiasm is good, but it can be stifling for vendors. They need a certain level of autonomy to be able to do their job well. And while they are supposed to be there for you and your needs, keep in mind that they have personal lives too. So give them space and trust in their expertise and experience.
