Our special talent at Jessica Jordan Events involves working with extremely 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 trying to control every detail, and they often lose track of the meaning of the day. Often the Type A client has moments of hostility and impatience. We suggest several tips on how to manage your Type A personality during the planning of your wedding, and allow you to focus on the meaning of the day – committing to the love of your life!

HIRE A CALM TYPE A PLANNER – The magical ingredients required to handle an extreme Type A personality, is another Type A personality! We have a gift of empathy and patience which has developed over the past fourteen years working with every type of guest. With our extreme eye for detail, sense of urgency and our ability to work with high-pressured situations, Jessica Jordan Events will be there for you every step of the way.

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 will be very difficult for you 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 major detail that is difficult to control on a wedding day. For the punctual and detailed bride with a not-so-punctual and detailed wedding party, we recommend adding buffer time. 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 fix 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 the love you have with your new husband or wife. 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.

Phone1One of the key vendors you will contract for your wedding is a photographer. Along with potential videography, this is how you remember all details for the rest of your lives. In recent years, one of the most common complaints I hear from photographers is that many guests during the ceremony are taking photo and video with their phones and iPads. It is shocking how difficult it is for the professional photographer to capture the important moments with these distractions such as the multiple camera phones and flash photography.

After all, you are paying your photographer to take photos of you getting married. Who is the photographer again? That’s correct, the professional you paid thousands of dollars to! Here are a few tips to ensure your wedding photography is clear of technology.

UNPLUG – At the entrance of your ceremony have your wedding planning team kindly request guests to turn their technology OFF while handing out programs and/or kippahs. Suggesting to turn off all devices due to privacy encourages the guests to respect the couple’s wishes.

ANNOUNCEMENT – Prior to the processional, most often the officiant walks to the alter area first. If you are nervous about guests forgetting to power down, it might be best for your officiant to kindly remind the guests. This announcement is more and more common.

LIVE IN THE MOMENT – Requesting your guests power down allows them to live in the moment, and really enjoy the ceremony.

It promotes guests to be present, and listen to your vows you worked hard on.

At Jessica Jordan Events we ensure your guests are present and enjoy your special day! If you are concerned about how to prevent guests’ technology from ruining your walk down the aisle, let us know your concerns in the comments below.
