Wedding Planner Bucket List

While we wouldn’t change our past wedding experiences for anything, we as wedding planners are always dreaming up amazing opportunities that we would love to be part of. Whether it is a venue that we have always wanted to visit, or a specific vendor that we have wanted to work with, there are things that every coordinator dreams of.

I am going to share a few of my “wedding planner bucket list” items today. These, admittedly, are a bit all over the place, but this is a list I have been compiling for many years now, so bear with me.

1)    A location that I have been eyeing for quite some time now is the Anthony Chapel at Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs, Arkansas. This is one of the most magical looking chapels I think I have ever seen! Hidden in the middle of a gorgeous forest on the outskirts of the city, this chapel is an incredible piece of architecture. It would be a dream to see a wedding take place here! So, if you or a friend of yours is getting married here, I will shamelessly ask that you pass along our contact information!

2)    In my Fangirl Friday post a few weeks back, I wrote about a rental company that has an inventory that is swoon-worthy named Casa de Perrin. They curate some of the most stunning combinations of china, flatware, and glassware that many wouldn’t even think to do. While they are based out of Los Angeles, CA, they work with clients and other vendors from all over the country, and I am just waiting for my chance to work with some of their inventory.

3)    Another bucket list item of mine would be to coordinate a vow renewal. Something about a couple who has been married for many years choosing to recommit themselves to each other in front of all their friends and family just makes me smile. I would love to share in the joy of a vow renewal (like this one that our team did in Charleston a couple years ago!), and I hope I have that opportunity soon!

4)    A European Destination wedding. Not only would working in Europe to plan a wedding be such an incredible experience, it would allow us to experience working with vendors in a completely different cultural setting. While any location in Europe is sure to be magical, I have my heart set on Italy.

While some of these bucket list goals may be more easily attainable than others, any of these would be a dream if they came true. If you, or any one you know, can help make any of these come true, please reach out. I would be more than appreciative and would absolutely treat you to a hug, a coffee, and my wedding planner a-game.
