Events | Wedding Planning Tips
At once, our #supervisor
went to the waiting staff and she instructed a handful of them to start setting up the chairs and putting them in place. She also spoke to the ladies who had now finished with the #stage
and were tidying up, getting ready to leave. They weren't really pleased...but they joined in. A few guys from the band also joined in and in no time, they were done. The waiters went on to finish the #setup
and the hall looked somewhat ready.
Now, something was missing; the #centerpieces!
She went to the hall manager and asked if he had an idea of where it was..he said a #friend
of the #family
was meant to have dropped off the day before but nobody came.
She urged him to call the contact to find out what was happening, he was kind enough to do so but was told the #father
of the #bride
misplaced the keys to where the centerpieces were kept. They were trying to work something out but the families were in #church
for the #ceremony.
To bring this long gist to an end, the #guests
arrived and were seated before the #centerpieces
were delivered. The #waiters
were placing them on the table while the #bride
and the #bridal
party were about to #dance
into the #reception.
was delivered late and no table linen...but thank God the hall manager was kind enough to provide one. The cake was still been assembled while #guests
were taking their seats.
This scenario unfortunately did happen for real. Imagine if our supervisor did not think on her feet and stepped in to make good a seeming negative situation. What would have happened if the guests came in and the chairs were still stacked up and the #hall
was not ready.
We had a few what if’s after this #event
but thank goodness it eventually turned out great. The bride did not realise all that happened because someone stepped in to help out. A few of the #guests
saw the tail end of the situation and commended our #supervisor
for a #job
well done. She s #miled
but highlighted that I am not the #planner
I am only here with the #food
but we couldn't just sit back and let things fall apart!
