10 tips for wedding consultation meetings

These are my top 10 tips for successful wedding client consultation meeting. This time of year, I’m meeting lots of brides and grooms and sometimes that happens over skype. These same tips apply even to a virtual skype meeting. You still want to have samples of your work, dress professionally, and follow up the right way. ☺

    About what percentage of meetings do you think you would book? Also when do they book? There at the meeting or maybe days and weeks later? Subscribed x

    Hi Joy,

    If you meet at a coffee shop do you typically buy a coffee for the clients? Or is it okay to just buy yourself a coffee to use the space?

    Thanks, love your videos! 🙂

    I was so nervous during my first meetings, I just started this year, booked 5 out of 5 meetings. I quickly realised that it's all about personality and professionalism. The couple already knows my prices, my portfolio, they just want to know I'm a normal person 🙂 just that realisation makes it so much easier 🙂

    Hi Joy Got my meeting tomorrow, this may sound like a stupid question but what do you mean by proposal?

    Hi Joy! I love this video (all your videos actually!) and I would love to see a video on what comes before the consulation. From inital contact to booking the meeting. I am wondering if you email back and forth some, have a phone call, or do you try to book an in person meeting as quickly as possible? I love when you share your thinking behind every thing you do!
