What COVID-19 pandemic has taught a 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

Miss 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.

What does the wedding planner do?

If you don’t like to spend so much money on a wedding, you need a wedding planner to plan better and at less cost. Other than that a wedding planner;

Look for Ross

Your wedding would not be complete without the bride’s wedding bouquet and bridesmaids. So, a wedding florist plays a significant role on your wedding day. 

Wedding Bouquet & Flowers

Your wedding flower will make your wedding day more beautiful by providing beautiful flower arrangements. Your wedding flowers’ value will vary depending on your style and needs. The bride and her bridesmaids should bring a bouquet. You can also enable your florist to create an additional arrangement for your bouquet toss (if you choose to do one) or your flight.

What does a wedding package include?

It’s nice to plan a wedding and follow the wedding’s desired themes and motifs.

Aside from the wedding theme, the Rings & Bouquets Events and Weddings’ wedding package should consider planning your wedding. 

Of course, that depends on whether the venue is cheap, premium, or luxurious. In some cases, a wedding package is a flat fee. Flat fee packages are more common in small wedding venues. Sometimes, a wedding package is a simple charge per person with the required minimum number of guests.  

How to decide what food should prepare for a wedding?

There are many features that guests will remember about your wedding day: beautiful theme, great music, the happy couple shining, and, of course, the wedding food. Yes, that means the menu should be at the top of your list of priorities. 

But before deciding what food to prepare for the wedding, you need to know what kind of food is available at a wedding venue. One also needs to consider how many guests will attend the event, and the couple should let their guests know if they are allergic to seashells. The wedding planner will work together and suggest the best financing for the wedding event.

How do I Invite Guests to My Wedding?

You are warmly invited! Yes, with wedding invitations you can send to your family and friends the great news you want to share with them. 

As a wedding planner, his responsibility is to create a unique and beautiful wedding invitation. The couple can use their personal stamp or ideas in making a valuable and lavish but affordable. 

Details are essential to every person who witness the event and will never forget the couple’s “I Do” by giving the wedding favors to the guests.  

If you’ve ever thought about skipping wedding favors, it is your choice! As most favors don’t make their way home with guests. You are already taking care of your guests with cocktails, dinner, and desserts. But, if you prefer to have wedding favors, that will be good also. 

What Are Wedding Accessories?

Of course, the wedding cannot go on and be complete without the bride and groom’s accessories. That includes what the bride will wear, such as the wedding veil, wedding dresses, wedding shoes, hair, and makeup accessories to emphasize and better reflect the couple. Most importantly, the rings of the bride and groom. These items will be captured and focused on by the wedding photographer. 

Say cheese! With just one click, the moment will probably be remembered and remembered again. That is the good thing about having a wedding photographer and thinking about an event that means something meaningful in your life.

Your wedding is one of the most salient events in your life. It will mean a lot to you, so you need to look and act as best you can. The cue to creating a successful wedding event in Davao City is preparing, preparing, and preparing, so you should plan which bridal car you want to use as your wedding car.

The wedding ceremony will be dull without a wedding host or emcee’s intelligence. The host and hostess invite guests to all wedding functions, ensuring guests sign the wedding book or at the reception. Guests also let them know where they will sit and when their table will go to the buffet. 

While the wedding singer will be the one who performs at wedding ceremonies or receptions, depending on their client’s preferences, successful wedding singers can fulfill all the roles requested by their clients.

Hence, a wedding is something that you need to think over and over again. It is not easy to enter such a sacred ceremony, but with the help of a wedding planner and the Rings & Bouquet Events and Weddings, your dream wedding will make it happen!

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.
