Hello loves, I’m Priscilla Rose! Before I share about PR Events, let me share a little bit about the planner behind the brand. I am a NYC gal, carrying my city sass in my 5’1 stature and Jessica Simpson heels. I am lost without my daily planner and Starbucks, but I love winding down with football, movie marathons and a glass of wine. I run my business like I run my life, full of laughter, style, and personal connections with friends and family. And, some champagne and cake! My go-to love quote is: “Ever Thine, Ever Mine, Ever Ours – from the wise words of Beethoven (and Carrie Bradshaw!)
Let’s chat about PR Events. PR formally stands for Priscilla Rose Events, but also mirrors what PRE does for its clients, and that is “represents”. Much like a PR rep works for celebrities, PR Events represents our couples from consultation to implementation of design and planning. We ensure that our couples have the right information to make the right choices for them, and the style to do so with the sparkle their big day deserves. Coming from an education background, (6 years as middle school teacher) educating my clients is a huge part of my job. As the planner, I am the network and link between the couple and every other aspect of the wedding. So, let me share 3 ways a planner can personalize and educate their couple’s big day!
- Personal design & inspiration- One of the best parts of my job is helping you fine tune your big day. In a recent poll, 70% of Pinterest users claim that they have wedding-themed boards before they’re even engaged! Listen, you don’t need me (or any professional) to tell you your style, favorite colors and theme for the wedding you have been dreaming of. But, you do need someone to help clean up those ideas and give you a clean, cohesive look. What I do as a planner, is take a look at your photos and boards at our consultation and then create 2-3 vision boards of my own to help guide you through a focused look and style. Together, we go through the inspiration and give you the next few steps to make it a reality! PR Events offers design!
2. Guiding clients- Each couple and wedding is unique, which means so are their needs! Most engaged couples are Millennials, which means their wedding is the first real thousands of dollar commitment they will make as an adult. Because they don’t know what they don’t know, they’re not sure the costs of professionals, what to look for, or what questions to ask. A planner should help educate and lead the way to the right professionals and help prepare their clients for each meeting. PR Events has started a growing live series called the Real Talk with Real Professionals. Each month, we take on real topics and queions from engaged couples and answer them with real professionals in the industry, and of course drink champagne while we chat! The goal is to educate couples, alleviate their fear that they should know the answers and put real professionals in front of them at the same time! Visit Real Talk on the links at the end of the blog.
- Personalizing Professionals and Resources- Being in the industry, I constantly hear that clients feel overwhelmed, or they want to avoid becoming overwhelmed (planner please!). Therefore, my job is to help eliminate work for couples by cutting the corners I know I can and to give only what I need to. For example, if I have a couple who I know has a smaller budget, I will not put on their checklist to hire a calligrapher and order programs and menus. These are extra expenses that my client can eliminate unless I know that is a want for them. I need to know my couples and be able to customize general checklists, to-dos, and professional lists to them. I would hate for them to be overwhelmed with “extras” or feel like they are missing out on something that may not be in their budget. My job gives me the opportunity to work with amazing and local professionals each week. I know their personalities, strengths, costs, and clientele. The best way to personalize and educate is to show couples their options with wedding professionals. A planner can easily match and set up a meeting with a quick phone call with the quirky photographer that matches their budget needs and has their date available faster than the client can filter through the thousands of Central Florida photographers that pop up on a search engine. When speaking with my couples, I am already calcu
- lating who may be their best match. I also tell that professional the details of their day (their date, services needed, fun fact about the couple and their style). What better way to help personalize a big day?
