A peak behind the scenes...
What about just checking in on Friday?
Here is how that scenario plays out.
Hotel check in starts at 3pm or 4pm.
At that time, we are already working. This means check in must happen after the event is complete - often close to midnight.
It takes 1-2 hours (hotel gives room, unload car, take to room, unload cart, set up – printer, radios, clothes, toiletries, other).
It is now 2am (assuming everything went smoothly).
Wedding day starts at 4am for your trusted wedding planner.
...If there is to be a shower or any event preparation, (both of which are serious requirements) there is literally zero time between events.
This is a bad idea – unsafe, counter-productive, inefficient, in-humane, and extremely high risk. We do not advise this, and do not work this way.
Check in the day before solves this. It enables us to be on site and ready for action. I can recover (at least a little bit!) between events and provide the promised level of service. Better service for your event, and safer for myself and my team.
