2. VALUE YOUR VENDORS

“Your vendors are your family within the industry. They are the ones who will help bring your vision and ideas to fruition. The vendors I work with trust me and enjoy working with my team. Make sure you are kind to those who work alongside you to help make the event a success. – Sharon Sacks, www.sacksproductions.com (source: www.bizbash.com)” Downbeat LA

Sharon Sacks | An Interview with Then and Now Magazine

Being in the wedding and events industry you learn tips and tricks of the trade. Recently Sharon sat down with Then and Now Shop Magazine to share her insights and experience with wedding planning and some tips for bride-to-be’s.

 


 

Here are some of our favorite parts:

Q: How do you make sure brides effectively describe to you their vision for their wedding day?

“A: When I meet with a bride and groom I have them bring in as many visuals as they can. I ask them not to limit themselves to only photos of florals or table settings but to think outside of the box. What architecture inspires them? What fashion do they love? What music do they listen to on their iPod? What are their favourite restaurants? In this discussion we try to focus on words that reflect the emotion they would like represented on that day. Weddings should be about the bride and groom as a couple and the feeling they would like their guests to have throughout the night.”

 

Q:What’s the most stressful aspect of planning a wedding?

“A: After 30 years in the business I am fortunate to have put together a large group of vendors who I trust in their creativity, product and execution. I still get butterflies the day of the wedding but knowing that I have amazing people with me helping me in these otherwise stressful fields keeps my stress levels down. You always need to have great vendors! “

 

Q: Is there a dream venue you’d like to book for a wedding/event?

“A: Dolphin Island, which is one of the most exclusive private islands near Positano, Amalfi Coast and Capri. It would be a dream come true to book this island for an event.”
