In the United States, wedding chefs earn around $25,000 to $40,000 per year, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
But this is an average salary of $23,000 a year.
This is in line with the $35,000-per-year average wage of a chef in China.
Here are five ways to get the most out of your job as a wedding director.
Choose a Wedding Director Who Can Be Remotely Controlled What can you do if your wedding day is a remote event?
In the years before the advent of the internet, weddings were held on big-screen televisions in a hotel bar or on a big-box mall.
These remote events were often broadcast live on the internet and brought in by professional videographers and photographers.
With the advent and proliferation of smartphones and other devices, remote-controlled events became a regular occurrence.
A wedding director could work remotely to create a memorable event for your guests, but what if you’re in a remote location?
What if your bride and groom want to be photographed with a family member or friend?
If you’re working with a team of five or more people, it’s a great time to have a full-time wedding director, said Susan O’Connor, owner of wedding planning firm O’Brien Associates.
“Remote-controlled wedding events are now commonplace and can be done in a matter of minutes.
If your venue has an indoor reception or outdoor reception, remote wedding events will be a snap.
If you want to do it at a large venue, there are plenty of resources online,” she said.
Create a Remote-Controlled Wedding Event A wedding can be a remote experience for two reasons: you’re not in the hotel, and you’re a guest of the host, not the bride or groom.
“In a remote wedding, there is no time limit for a wedding to take place,” said Jill K. Jones, senior director of marketing and business development for wedding catering company A+S International.
“The venue can host weddings up to two weeks in advance, so you can have them happen anywhere, anytime.”
In a wedding, the bride and/or groom will be on the premises, which means they can set the venue up and set up the guest.
But what if they don’t want to spend time on setting up the venue?
What about the bride’s family, friends, or coworkers?
“Remote weddings are a great way to keep the bride out of the spotlight,” Jones said.
“It’s a fun, intimate experience that keeps guests coming back for more.”
Use Remote Automation for Wedding Events The best way to make a remote-controlled wedding is with the use of remote automation.
You can use any of the services from Airbnb or Priceline that have been around for a while.
They offer services like location-based mapping and cloud-based scheduling that can help you plan out your event.
If the venue is large and you need a lot of people, a couple of dozen guests can work together on a single night.
If they want to host multiple events in a day, you can set up a multi-location event.
This allows you to organize guests and guests’ transportation and parking, and even set up special seating arrangements.
If all of your guests have smartphones, you may want to set up an app so guests can set their own preferences.
Set Up an Event Planter If you can’t use the traditional venue, you could create a wedding-themed event planner.
The wedding planner will be able to help you set up event plans for all your guests and give you access to their schedules.
If an event is a traditional reception, for example, it could have a theme such as a special occasion or a wedding gift, or you could have an event that will only be available to guests who have booked the reception.
This could be your wedding-friendly website, like weddingplanner.com, or a guest-friendly blog, like weddingshow.com.
Choose an Event Location The best option for remote-control weddings is to have an online wedding planner.
These online wedding planners can help make your event planning a snap by providing you with a calendar, an online map, and a detailed itinerary.
“If you want a really personalized experience with your wedding, you should hire a local wedding planner,” said Kelly K. White, senior associate with A+C International.
With these services, you don’t need to plan a wedding in advance.
The planners can make your planning more streamlined, and they can even give you more information.
“With online wedding planning, you are always able to set it up in the future, if you want,” said Jones.
“And you can even make it free if you choose.
This also allows you a more personalized experience than using traditional planning venues.”
