I had a great weekend with my clients. They were happy. As a wedding planner my primary job is to ensure that come wedding day all that they requested is done and I take this job very very seriously. I was also the decorator and florist for this event so even more so. I Helen Graham behaved unprofessionally on Saturday at Half Moon as I had to behave in a manner not becoming to get my clients wishes done. If you know me personally I am always a professional. Why did I do this?? My client requested a particular style of draping its something that is done by all decorators and we have never had a problem with any tent vendor doing this but on this particular occasion Cover Me Up Tents from Montego Bay who was booked directly by Half Moon without having a discussion with me to say look we don’t want xyz started cutting down our work. Nothing said to me. THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND UNPROFESSIONAL. If there is a problem come to the planners, management etc. and say something. I have never ever done this in my 10 years of operating Helen G Events but I emphatically state that I will never ever work with Cover Me Up Tents from Montego Bay ever again and if any clients require that as part of doing my job I will decline that job or request my usual tent vendors (Mr. Norman Jackson from Runaway Bay, Tents & Events from Sav or Tent City) because my wedding set up that day will be in jeopardy.
As a wedding professional what the client wants goes and we do whatever it takes to make that happen safely and without damage to property and none of this was at risk. So after I had to behave unprofessionally at Half Moon which I guess I am now blacklisted from, what my client wanted was adhered to and everyone including the clients were happy with the end result.
Please note the client was in no way was affected by this as they had no idea what was going on. This is one of the main reasons why you hire a wedding planner.
