Spring Wedding and Party Tips

Planning an outdoor wedding or party? Always have a "Plan B"--an indoor choice in case thunderclouds appear, the site is infested with bees, the sprinklers turn the lawn to mud, or Mother Nature finds a novel way to be uncooperative.

Even if you are fine with inclement weather or varmints snacking on your appetizers and cake, your guests may not be so tolerant. And these unplanned surprises could prevent your vendors from delivering their services altogether.

Read your agreements with your vendors and be aware of what conditions make it impossible for them to do their jobs. Think of everyone's comfort by:

  • Providing shade or parasols to guests, and keeping water handy especially on hot days
  • Using heater lamps and passing out wraps or blankets on cold days
  • Having a tent or shelter available in case the weather turns
  • Planning on using an alternative indoor location if all else fails

If you are planning a wedding, or any other shindig, I am available to perform for your special event at (800)255-6318 and (available in the Tahoe/Northern California/Northern Nevada regions). I'm always happy to recommend other services for you, too (including suggestions for some fine outdoor and indoor locations)!
