As an event planner, weather can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. And, a lot of the time, it’s your worst enemy.
I was reminded of this in June when, thanks to some severe thunderstorms, we had to reschedule an outdoor concert at Waverly with Mo Money Band. The concert was highly anticipated as a part of their summer event series, but when a crazy thunderstorm prevented the band from being able to set up their equipment before the start of the event, we had to scramble to reschedule.
Most couples spend months, even years, planning their dream wedding. This summer, Jennifer and Jeffrey only had two and a half weeks.
Yes, you read that right. The date the couple chose for their wedding, May 19, was particularly important, so they knew they wanted to be married then. They planned out a romantic wedding in Paris, but due to unplanned circumstances, they had to push it back. If they can do it, so can you.
If you’re anything like me, you’re trying to soak in as much outdoor time as possible before the chilly weather returns. Of course, North Carolina doesn’t make it easy with all the 90+ degree days we’ve been having the last few weeks. Luckily, once the sun goes down it’s typically gorgeous out.
That’s why I’m such a big fan of outdoor movie nights. It’s a great way to spend time together with people and spend time outside, once it’s not scorching. There are a lot of community organizations who host outdoor movie nights throughout the summer - if you’re looking for one, typically you just have to check out your local parks and rec program and they’ll be hosting a few. But, it's also a lot easier than you might think to host your own outdoor movie night.
