What COVID-19 pandemic has taught a wedding planner in Davao

wedding planner in Davao

It’s been a year since COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected the bread and butter of the event industry in Davao. Even worse, there has been a somewhat throwback of what has happened a year ago. Just in June 2021, Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) is in effect again.

Anyhow, this has also become a way for us to reflect upon some things that this pandemic has taught us.

Lessons learned from COVID-19 pandemic as a wedding planner

I have known Ms. Ross Bato for quite some time. She’s a very passionate wedding planner in Davao. I always take delight in our until-early-morning conversation from which I have always gained some lessons on how to run a business. Aside from that, I have also learned some things that are especially related to wedding planning or about love.

Nothing can stop love

Ma’am Ross Bato is a firm believer that love is an antivirus. In fact, Rings & Bouquet Events Management Services became the first intimate wedding planning team to mount a very simple wedlock celebration here in the metro. In our spare talk, she would tell me that nothing (not even a pandemic) can stop the love of two persons despite all odds. Two lovers will sure find a way to be together no matter what. True enough, there were wedding clients who reached out to her to ask for assistance in planning for their BIG day.

Until such time, intimate wedding has become the new trend in Davao city. I am so glad that people from the event industry have seen some ray of hope amidst these trying times. We must be thankful for the one who took the lead when anybody else found no hope along the way.

The same lesson applies to her love towards her business. Backed up with passion, Ms. Ross’ love for Rings & Bouquet Events Management Services is unfathomable. She would not just stop. That’s how I know her. She fights for it. She is made to believe that her event management company can take greater heights. So it did.

Always think of your clients first

Above everything else, we need to listen to the requests of the clients. That’s Ms. Ross’ way of winning clients. She caters to the needs of the wedding clients no matter what it takes. After all, the ones who have the final say are the clients. This goes to say that regardless of the years of experience that we have, considering the desires of your clients is a rule of thumb. It should never be neglected.

While it may sound a cliché, customers are always right. That is so true even in wedding planning. Justlike the motto of PNB, “You first”. Streamlining your planning priority based on the wants of your clients is one of the reasons why you will be loved as wedding supplier. You have to believe that clients know exactly their dream wedding.

At the end of the day, every wedding should be unique; hence, the signature wedding brand of wedlock party management has come to existence at Rings & Bouquet Events Management Services.

Believe that better days are ahead

Even though you are confined in a very challenging situation, still believe that something greater can be found somewhere at the right time. This is to say that this is just a test. This is only temporary. We need to be able to find ways on how we can thrive in this pandemic.

Ms. Ross has proven last year that she could do it. It’s evident as she had a lot of weddings last year and in the months prior to the MECQ. She was able to foresee that days would get better. There have been a lot of adjustments, protocols — well, that’s okay.

We could just be in another stormy season in our wedding planning business. That’s part of the game. An even better future lies ahead. We just have to live on. When everything clears, it’s our time again.


If you have been thinking of planning for your wedding (whether intimate or grand) in advance, don’t hesitate to contact the signature wedding planner in Davao. With Rings & Bouquet, forever starts today.

Rings & Bouquet is the First Intimate Wedding Planner in Davao

The First Intimate Wedlock Party in Davao

Back in 2020, just when the COVID-19 pandemic first hit globally, event practitioners in Davao city were feeling so down that everyone was hopeless and anxious that we would not be able to make ends meet for the rest of the months while the lock down was implemented. As a matter of fact, Davao City went under enhanced community quarantine on April 4, 2020. If my memory serves me right, it was the darkest time in the event industry as we braced for very tough times.

Anyhow, while everyone else was not seeing any light, Ross Bato, the CEO of Rings & Bouquet Events Management Services thought of offering low rates for wedlock parties that would only cater to a very limited number of guests. She seemed to be a laughing stock back then — but she sought it as an advantage on her end.

We had our first intimate wedding party at Cinci’s Bar and Restaurant. Rings & Bouquet Team made it so good for Dexter and Ann. It’s the most unforgettable tying of know that I have hosted for as I was chose in an instant to be part of their secondary sponsors. I also can not forget this very day as I assisted Ma’am Ross with the styling.

Admittedly, I found it a bit hard to do the emceeing as I had to deliver a not-so-ordinary hosting stint. In my blog on “3 emceeing adjustments in times of COVID“, I have shared my musing points on how challenging it is to emcee during such trying times. I am forever grateful as I have learned how to emcee an intimate wedding party in this time of pandemic.

I am so proud of what Rings & Bouquet has gone in just a matter of year. It has obviously curved its name as the queen of intimate wedding here in the metro. With its fruitful experience, learn about the sweet ideas from the best intimate wedding planner in Davao city.
