Wedding planners are superheroes.

So, too, are other wedding industry professionals who go about their ordinary lives like Clark Kent and Diana Prince until they are called upon in a moment of need. In those moments, they shuck off their everyday persona and don the cape and tights to leap tall steeples in a single bound and use their powerful intuition to solve problems so their clients’ weddings can go off without a hitch.

A bit dramatic? Well, sure, but by effectively unleashing your creativity, navigating the world of weddings, planning for the unplanned, and solving crises, you often save the day for your clients. That is not an exaggeration.

Wedding Planner Magazine wants to help. We’ve packed this issue with information you need to do your work. In our cover feature, Industry Expert Cris Joseph helps you navigate the world of tented weddings and arms you with a must-have tented wedding checklist. The National Association for Catering and Events shares its tips about how you can anticipate the needs of caterers for your tented events. And, since all tents require lighting, Master Wedding Vendor™ Ed Griffin gives you the latest advice.

Stepping outside of the tent, one of our favorite superheroes, Matthew Robbins, shares his wedding planning advice in an exclusive interview with Wedding Planner Magazine. Alan Berg comes to the rescue with his “Wedding Not-So Confidential,” in which he talks about how you can successfully respond to questions about your pricing. So, put on your X-ray vision, and peer through the pages of this issue for these hot topics—and so much more!
