One of the worst things I hate doing is saying to potential clients is, "I'm sorry but we are already booked for that day," and lately I've had to say that a lot so that's why we are expanding and we are looking for creative individuals who love weddings and planning a great party.
We are looking for Wedding Planners, Wedding Assistants, Day of Wedding Helpers and Interns.
As an Elegant Affairs Team Member, you will learn the ins and outs of wedding and event planning beginning with meeting with potential clients through the planning process until the completion of the event. You will research and prep for client meetings, put together inspiration boards, meet with new and existing vendors to create and strengthen relationships and prep for weddings and events. Another facet of the position includes promoting Elegant Affairs to new and potential clients and vendors utilizing social networks.
We definitely have more to chat about if you are:
... calm in the face of adversity
... fun, funny (we like to laugh...a lot)
... a good negotiator
... pumped to do physical labor (in heels or super cute flats)
... comfortable getting dirty (yes, we often find ourselves crawling on the floor)
... willing to learn lots of new skills (sewing anyone?)
... knowledgeable about colors, flowers, fabric, décor, etc.
... have a good fashion sense (of course we have to look good)
... able to visualize and be creative without being directed
... keep up with the latest trends
... well organized
Our office is located in Tacoma and you must provide your own transportation as we drive A LOT to and from meetings and events. You MUST BE available Friday-Sundays for our events throughout our wedding season. This position does have the ability to grow into something more depending on performance.
If you think you would be a perfect fit for the Elegant Affairs team, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for an information packet/application.
We look forward to hearing from you!
