Become a Top Wedding Planner – Get Tips to Be a Better Planner from David Tutera


If you love watching celebrity wedding planner David Tutera on his television show, “My Fair Wedding,” you’ll also enjoy his book, “My Fair Wedding.” It gives you a look at 10 of his brides from the last three seasons of his show. You get to see photographs from the episodes as you read how he took the brides’ visions from ordinary to extraordinary and gave them weddings better than they ever dreamed they could have.

The book is written for brides to learn how to plan their own weddings but, as a new wedding planner, you can not only get wedding planning inspiration, you can also learn how to work with brides.

Here are 3 important comments David made about his meetings with brides that can help you be a better planner:

1) He believes it is his job to tell the story of the bride and groom, who they are individually and as a couple, through imagery, design, lighting and food.

Every aspect of a wedding should blend together and create a message of who the couple is.

2) In the first meeting with a bride, he tries to learn as much as he can about her and her groom, their personalities, their likes and dislikes, and what their hopes and wishes are so he can accurately tell their story.

Don’t get caught up in just creating a theme, think about the couple and who they are first and design and plan the wedding around them.

3) He never judges their ideas, he just works with brides to create a wedding that is bigger, better and more meaningful than they originally had planned.

It’s so easy to judge a bride’s vision and the decisions she has made to make that vision a reality but remember, she doesn’t have the expertise you do in executing a wedding.

It’s a fun, informative book and includes comments from each of the brides. But remember, it only covers 10 shows, not all of them. For example, if you are looking for shows from the last season, season three, you will only find the bride with a casino theme and the bride with the Great Gatsby theme.

Also, even though David speaks extensively about the vendors who provided products and services when he is on the show, he does not list them in the book. But, if some element in the book resonates with you and your bride, talk with your local vendors about creating something similar.
