Plan Your Own Wedding was started as a labour of love. As Beatrice helped international couples in the Netherlands plans their weddings, she began to think about all the couples who could benefit from all the years of event planning experience she garnered and what would be the best way to reach them. So, after a lot of thought and brainstorming, she decided to create a web course to help people all over the world plan their perfect day.
Business or Customer Focus?
As she and her content producer researched other wedding planning sites, one of the things they noticed was how often these sites seemed to be more about promoting vendors than helping couples to really get a grasp all the different aspects of planning a wedding. It really seemed that most of these sites were more interested in highlighting businesses who paid for advertising than imparting wisdom on how to plan the perfect day. So, one of the goals Beatrice aimed for was to offer unbiased information and a solid foundation on how to plan a wedding. She really wanted to make sure people were getting the best wedding planning advice available and wouldn’t feel pressured to use a business they weren’t sure of.
A Road Map For Wedding Planning
Once the focus became solely on the couple, the course seemed to fall easily into place. Beatrice came up with a handy timeline which could be used by couples all over the world, whether or not they were from the same place or an international couple. Starting with the necessary paperwork and some basic administration stuff, the course offers a handy road map on everything from when to send invitation to asking friends and family to be part of the wedding party to when to have tasting of cakes, caterers, and wines.
A Few Bumps In The Road
Like most new sites, there have been a few bumps in the road. With so many exciting ideas and information waiting to be shared trying to figure out which direction to take social media being one of the biggest bumps.
