Planning a wedding soon and need some advice.

Theodore Freeman

I’m working full time as an event planner and one of my clients referred me over to a group of Ukraine women from her pilates class. One of them is getting married early next year and the other girls are going to be her bridesmaids. I don’t really know much about what the dating or marriage culture is like in the Ukraine and I want to avoid planning any activities or saying anything that might be offensive to them. Anything I should know before I start working on the upcoming wedding ceremony? Thanks!

Google is your friend. And be prepared to have a long talk with your client about what she wants. She might want to complately forget the old country, for all we know.

Agree with sushipup1. Best is to interview the client on her vision for her wedding, including any activities, decorations, symbols, etc., including what she does not want included.
