Mega Post 2010: What's New?

December 30, 2009  |  Southern Fete News

After over a year of business, I’ve learned a lot. For starters, the difference between a wedding planner and coordinator. A planner is someone who walks someone through the process and develops a visual plan as well as logistical plan. A coordinator tends to be the hands that put together a predetermined vision. And as I said in the previous post, I have begun to focus my vision for Southern Fete to fit the niche that I think the Lafayette market needs. Although we will still offer the day-of services, our full-service package will cater more towards brides who are looking for creative guidance. Honestly, I have tons of ideas that I would hate to go untapped because I am simply coordinating weddings every weekend. Though the South tends to be more traditional, I strongly believe there are many brides out there looking for something different. And I would love to be the one to create it!

Sooo…what’s our niche?

I have been super inspired by the Robert Best Barbie illustrations so I will let them help me tell you!
