Behind The Scenes: A Day in the Life of a Dallas Wedding Planner

Welcome to the bustling, beautiful world of wedding planning in Dallas, where every detail matters and every moment counts! At Double Blessing Events, we believe that planning your wedding is not just about planning all the details, but it’s about celebrating this amazing thing that the Lord is doing!

Join us as we take you behind the scenes of a day in the life of a Dallas wedding planner, showcasing the dedication, passion, and faith that go into making your special day perfect.

Early Morning: Planning And Prayers

Our day starts early as a wedding planner! Before diving into the hustle and bustle, we always start our day with Scripture and reading His Word. “I will meditate on Your precepts, And contemplate Your ways. I will delight myself in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word.” Psalm 119:15-17 

We also take some time to pray over our couples. We believe in the power of prayer and the importance of intentionally praying blessings over you, your wedding day, and your marriage. We pray for clarity and wisdom from the Holy Spirit and that every detail that we plan aligns perfectly with His will. It’s our way of starting the day with purpose and intentionality, knowing that we’re not just organizing an event but also partnering with the Lord on what He wants for your wedding day!

We love to begin every planning session with prayer when we meet with our couples, whether it’s the first planning session or a detailed review of the final touches. These moments of seeking His face remind us of the most important things — to do everything unto the Lord, to glorify Him, and to serve our couples with love and dedication.

Morning Meetings: Vendors and Venues

After spending time with the Lord, it's time to dive into one of the most crucial parts of our day – connecting with vendors and venues. With our cups of coffee (or tea!) in hand, we start making calls and sending emails to our trusted network of vendors. Building and maintaining strong relationships with florists, photographers, caterers, and venues ensures your wedding day runs smoothly and that no detail is missed!

Our job as wedding planners is to make sure everything happens as it should, that every vendor knows the details, and that everyone is on the same page. We act as the bridge between your vendors and every detail coming to life as you envision it! Whether this is through email or final planning video calls, we ensure no detail is left to chance. We send over detailed timelines, specific shots that are important to you that you want your photographer to get, and even maps that show vendors where to park and unload.

We also love just staying in touch and catching up with our vendors that are in our network! It’s so much fun to see what the Lord is doing in their lives, how their businesses are going, and what the latest trends are in the industry.

Networking isn't just about business; it’s about building a community, fellowshipping with each other, and encouraging one another! We know the best venues and wedding businesses in Dallas and have personal connections with their managers, which means we can often secure exclusive deals or prime amenities that you might not find on your own. It’s so much fun working with vendors who have the same vision and faith as we and our couples do.

Because it is a team effort! And we’re in the middle of it, orchestrating everything perfectly. Our job is to secure all the details, knowing that each vendor is ready to deliver their best for your special day. And yes, if any hiccups arise, we’re right there to smooth things out, turning potential stress into something you didn’t even know happened!

So, whether booking that dreamy venue or coordinating with the top-tier caterer, our mornings are dedicated to ensuring all the pieces of your wedding puzzle fit perfectly together.

Midday: Social Media and Marketing

In this day and age, social media and marketing are vital. Many brides find us on Facebook and Instagram, and we love showcasing God’s work on those platforms! We love posting updates, sharing planning tips, and showcasing our latest events. It also helps potential couples see our work so they know if we’re the best wedding planners and coordinators for them!

Afternoon: Planning Sessions

Afternoons are reserved for in-depth planning sessions. Whether meeting in person or via video call, we sit down with our couples to discuss every detail of their wedding. From color schemes to seating arrangements, no detail is too small. And yes, we always start these meetings with a prayer, asking that His hand would guide us and give us peace with every decision.

Late Afternoon: Creative Brainstorming

Creativity is essential in wedding planning. Late afternoons are dedicated to brainstorming and crafting unique ideas to make each wedding special. This is when we think outside the box, ensuring that every event we plan is unique, honoring to God, and matches our couples’ dream vision!

Evening: Email Outreach and Freebies

As the day winds down, we focus on email outreach. We send wedding planning freebies to our email list, offering valuable tips and resources to help couples navigate the planning process. These freebies are a great way to share our expertise and support couples who may be in the early stages of planning.

Special Mention: Free Wedding Planning Facebook Group

We offer a free wedding planning Facebook group for Christian brides who are seeking support with their planning! This group is a safe space where brides can share their experiences, seek advice, give encouragement, and find inspiration. We sometimes go live, as well, to discuss specific wedding planning topics and provide valuable insights and support. Join us in the Southern Christian Brides Facebook Group. We would love to have you!
