Wedding Director, Like Theater
My thoughts our
company serving as your wedding directors -
A wedding director,
almost exactly as a theater director or stage director - is a
director/instructor in the wedding production field who oversees and
orchestrates the mounting of a wedding theater production (almost
exactly like a play, an opera, a musical, or a devised piece of
work), by unifying various endeavors and aspects of wedding
function is to ensure the quality and completeness of wedding
production and to lead the members of the creative team (the wedding
service vendors) into realizing the producer's (bride and groom, that
is) artistic vision for their wedding production.
therefore collaborates with a team of creative individuals
(photographers, MC/DJ performers, bakers) and other staff,
coordinating research, stagecraft, costume design, props, lighting
design, acting, set design, and sound design for the wedding
theater, after the producers (bride and groom), the director is
generally the primary visionary, making decisions on the artistic
concept and interpretation of the wedding play and its staging.
Different directors occupy different places of authority and
responsibility, depending on the structure and philosophy of
individual bride and groom. Directors use a wide variety of
techniques, philosophies, and levels of collaboration.
you looking for some unique readings to include in your ceremony?
Here are some great ones! Classic:The First Letter of Saint John 4:7-12Beloved, let us
love one another,because love is of God;everyone who
loves is begotten by God and knows God.Whoever is without
love does not know God, for God is love…. Prayer of Saint Francis of AssisiLord, make us
instruments of your peace.Where there is hatred, let us sow
love;… Song of Solomon 6:3I am my beloved’s and my beloved
is mine.My beloved speaks and says to me: Arise, my love, my
fair one, and come away; for lo, the winter is past, the rain is over
and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has
come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land… Song of Solomon 8:6-7Place me like a seal over your
heart, like a seal on your arm.For love is as strong as
death, its jealousy as enduring as the grave.Love flashes
like fire, the brightest kind of flame… Blessing of the Handsby Rev. Daniel L. HarrisThese are the hand…
I sat down with a couple, to talk about all of the details of their
wedding day. As an Entertainer, who also frequently handles
Production and Direction, I always try to be sure that everyone
involved in the wedding day, is completely clear on who is
doing/responsible for, which specific tasks. As I started going
through some questions, I noticed a few things I had asked them -
they were not clear on, and could not tell me for sure who was
responsible for, and openly/clearly agreed to doing many of the usual
(and often seen as important) tasks - for their big day.
Questions such as:
“Who should we ask
to take care of that?” “Who should we direct them to?” “How
do we make sure that happens?”
After several more
uncertain and puzzling looks from the couple, I asked “Have you
hired someone to formally work with you as your wedding Producer, and
on the day-of, as your Director?
To which they
replied, “Well, the venue has someone on staff and and they are
supposed to be doing some…
have to admit, when my sister got married just over six years ago, she
only signed one contract (with the venue), and, she never read a word of
the contract. She was one of the lucky brides, who didn’t have to pay
the price of not reading her wedding vendor contracts. In my knowledge,
from working in the wedding business for the 16+ years, I have heard so
many stories of brides who did have to pay that price, for not being
diligent. That is not a fun memory to have of your wedding at all.
I’m on a mission to let couples know just how easy it is to know what’s
in your wedding contracts so you are protected if anything should go
wrong with your wedding vendors. Let’s break it down!
1. Why You Need Wedding Contracts
contracts serve a few purposes. They outline exactly what you’re
receiving in goods or services, and what your vendor is receiving in
payment, what the time-line is for that payment, and who is making the
payment. Wedding contracts also protect you…
