Event Privacy Appreciated by Celebrities

Your Free Wedding Website www.eventasticweddings.com

 

There are some people ‘fortunate’ enough to have so much popularity that billions of people want to know their every move. It’s great when celebrities choose to oblige their fans by sharing some of their personal information with the public but there are many times where they need and want their privacy when it comes to personal matters. Celebrities aren’t the only ones that appreciate privacy with respect to certain events in their lives. We all have our reasons.

While the definition of ‘event’ indicates a planned occasion of some importance fostering social contact, we all know that doesn’t mean all events are made open to the general public by organizers.  Sometimes it’s a closed event. Eventastic.com and EventasticWeddings.com recognizes that people plan events regularly where a specific guest list is created and only those on that list are made privy to the event information and invited to attend. It’s no surprise that people like Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds or Kanye and Kim wouldn’t want their registry lists or photos viewable by the general public.

It was important to us to provide options to our users. By allowing for wedding events made on the Eventastic Weddings platform to be made ‘public’ or ‘private’, the attraction for those wanting to be discreet in planning their wedding has been widely appreciated and welcomed. Those with high profiles are able to create invites to their events/parties privately whether for personal reasons or otherwise.

When people create their wedding website on EventasticWeddings.com or other events and parties on Eventastic.com they must click a box on their planning page whether they wish their event to be ‘public’ or ‘private’. In so doing, if the creator clicks ‘private’, the event will NOT be searchable by the public under the “Find Event” tab on the website. Only potential guests who have been sent the URL to the event will be made aware of the wedding or event page and its details.

Wedding planners, high profile individuals and Corporations who host employees events all over the world  have shared their clients’ appreciation of our company’s sensitivity to their wishes and needs of privacy. With Eventastic providing the ticketing software to the Bridal Showplace Bridal Show with David Tutera in California last year and this year, attendees continue to express their excitement to learn of the Eventastic Weddings and Eventastic website and how helpful it was to the planning of their event and sharing important details with guests.

If you are thinking of planning an event that involves ticketing or registration don’t hesitate. There is no other software out there that does what this does AND it is free to use for free events.

How to Navigate a Bridal Show

My Wedding Show ChecklistBeing engaged is a wonderful feeling. We at Eventastic know there is inspiration everywhere and friends and family are making themselves available to support you at every turn.  Attending a Bridal Show is often on the top of a newly engaged woman’s to-do list.  These shows can be insane for a bride to be.

You will likely have friends and family with you who are pointing out things that you may like but how do you decide who to spend your time with while there?  It can be really easy for a girl to lose track of what she wanted to achieve. My advice to those attending a bridal show is this:

Decide who you must chat with


Download our list
of the possible vendor types that will be at the show. Then decide who you will need for your big day and start marking them on your ‘must chat with’ list.
I would recommend couples take a moment to talk with everyone at the show… even if only for a moment to:

  • see what they have to offer
  • to get more ideas via through photos, cake decor, etc
  • to learn what is available

You may also find that you are unsure of all your needs. It is still valuable to get some information in case the need pops up, for example, if you haven’t selected your venue you won’t know if you need to bring in rentals.

Time it out

You probably don’t want to be wandering through the wedding show for 6 hours. There is almost always a fashion show which is a great way to veto out styles and point out to your girls what you like for dresses.

Keep in mind regular meal time. Everyone will enjoy themselves much more if their stomach isn’t growling. Plan a snack or meal before or after the show. This also gives you time to discuss details and point out things you love or disliked.

Don’t forget to give yourself a fair amount of time to have conversations. You may find yourself trying cakes, flipping through photo albums or looking at travel books.

Get Solid information

Prepare questions for those on your must chat with list! Bring them on a clip board and ask one of your girls to take notes. After talking to 50 people it can be hard to remember who said what exactly, notes will take the pressure off trying to remember the small details of each vendor. Some questions to consider for example are:

  • How far in advance do you need to be booked?
  • What is the cost?
  • What installments do I pay in?
  • What method of payment do they accept?
  • Are there travel expenses?
  • How many meetings do you expect to have?
  • How long does it take to do hair/make-up?
  • Do you have preferred vendors that you work with?
  • Is there a discount if you book early?
