Since planning a Wedding and Producing have so much in common . . .

As many of you know, after four decades and a close call or two, I’m getting married this summer!

As soon as milady said “yes,” the planning began.  And I realized that planning a wedding was not unlike producing a show.  There are a couple of star actors.  There is an audience.   There are costumes.  It’s expensive!

And the most difficult thing is finding the right “theater” and praying that it’s available!

So I was right at home.

The only trouble for a Producer like me is that on this “production” . . . well . . . I don’t get to call any of the shots.  😉

But since there are so many similarities, and since I believe I have some interesting insights on how to have a fantastically fun and theatrical wedding, I’ve decided to start a new blog on how to produce the perfect wedding.  It’s called TheGroomsPerspective (duh).  The first post is already up, and I’m already having so much fun with it, I think I’ll be doing it for some time to come.  I even have a couple of seminars in mind (how to build a wedding website, etc.).

I hope you’ll read it and subscribe.

    Not to mention lights, sound, and…drama! One of my college theater classmates and I run a wedding planning company.

    So funny you brought this up! As I’ve been producing now for years and planning events, I’ve decided to start my own event planning company, Occasions by Mary! I get to use the skills that help in my non-profit work with Mercia Entertainment as well as using something I’m really good at to make my main source of income. I made the connection between producing and event planning only recently, but I’m so glad I did. It was that “ah-hah” moment we all wish for. Thanks for the April Fools, I totally bought it!

  • Yes, there are both intrinsic and extrinsic rewards to getting married and producing a family. Congrats to a new labor of love.

    Generally I can’t read submit about information sites, even so would want to say that that write-up really pushed me personally to think about and implement it! Your own creating preference has become amazed us. Thanks, pretty wonderful content.
