Advice for the Type-A Couple
Our special talent at Jessica Jordan Events involves working with highly detailed and Type A personalities. We pride ourselves on building trust with clients who may have the highest level of expectations. Many couples spend too much time controlling every detail and often lose track of the day’s meaning. Often the Type A client has moments of hostility and impatience. We will advise on managing your Type A personality during your wedding planning and allow you to focus on the meaning of the day – committing to the love of your life!
FIND A CALM TYPE A PLANNER – The magical ingredients required to handle an extreme Type A personality are another Type A personality! We have a gift of empathy and patience which has supported our almost 20 years of working with every type of guest. With our extreme eye for detail, sense of urgency, and ability to work with high-pressure situations, Jessica Jordan Events will be there for you every step.
AVOID DESTINATION – If you fall within the Type A controlling category, perhaps planning a destination wedding is not for you. If you cannot see, touch, and taste the food and surroundings, it won’t be easy to trust many details of a destination wedding. We recommend a local venue and local vendors so that you build a trusting relationship and know exactly what you have signed up for.
CREATE BUFFER TIME – Time is the one significant detail that is difficult to control on a wedding day. We recommend adding buffer time for the punctual and detailed bride with a not-so-punctual wedding party. This will allow additional time within your schedule if something does not go as planned. If we have buffer time, there is always time to correct a last-minute dilemma. We always say it’s better to “hurry and wait” than to be late.
LIVE IN THE MOMENT – This is your wedding day; it is the happiest day of your life. Don’t allow details to take over your love for your new partner. Take deep breaths all day, hydrate, and pass your phone to your friend. Live in the moment and enjoy every second!
If you are a detailed person who may fall within the Type A category, Jessica Jordan Events looks forward to hearing from you soon.
