The title of this episode is “No Wedding Coordinator.” Episode 24.
A couple has announced their engagement. Everyone is happy for them.
I am sure the mother of the bride of this wedding took great pleasure in helping plan her daughter’s special day. Wedding planning gets you half the way there. After planning, for an event to be successful, there remains execution.
It was agreed upon between the bandleader and the mother of the bride that each bridal party couple would enter to their own music during the Grand Entrance. Ambitions, but great idea!
The band prepared and rehearsed six thirty-second cues. One cue for each bridal party couple.
However, in the story relayed to me the band set up in such a way that they could not see the couples entering and there was no coordination between the bridal party and the band during the execution of the grand entrance.
We can all learn from this.
And now please enjoy “No Wedding Coordinator.”
