Since everything is created twice: first, in the mind, then in reality; likewise, every successful celebration is first planned, then actualized through meticulous preparations, scheduling and delegation of tasks. You may have enjoyed the celebration of your friend’s wedding, and have felt afterwards that the food and drinks were really sumptuous and enticing to eat. You may have also noticed the arrangements of flowers and may have remarked that the way those flowers were set were really beautiful and lovely. Moreover, the overall impression that you have about the celebration may be perfect, because the timing of everything has been well coordinated. So you were moved and remarked to yourself that you would also want to have this kind of celebration during your wedding. Yet, everything may have looked so smooth and easy for everybody during the celebration. But behind the scene, the caterers are feverishly doing everything, working out every detail of the plan that they had conceived several months ago. This kind of nice weddings can never be realized without the hard works of the catering service that was hired by your friend. Likewise, this wedding event has long been realized in the mind of the wedding planner, who met with the meeting planners, the facilities supervisors, the unique event planner, the rental business, and the production and audio visual companies. The wedding planner coordinated with these people and delegated the tasks that they were quite familiar with and used to perform. The wedding planner enabled these different people to work in a highly coordinated manner, like an intricate machine in which every cog in the wheel moves beautifully and synchronously.
I once had a chance to attend a wedding in Indianapolis and was highly impressed by the smooth flow of the wedding celebration program. I was also so impressed with the setting of the reception area. Likewise, I was quite impressed by the catering service which really did a great job of providing the guests with very satisfying buffet dishes. As an observer, I have noticed that the stewards and bartenders were really well-trained and well-mannered. The service staff had done a great job in running the occasion. I said to myself that this may be the best caterers Indianapolis has to offer. The guests were so impressed like me and some of them have even asked the coordinating manager about the service’s contact information. Seldom do I see this kind of well-coordinated celebration that I readily felt that I should also be getting married soon and should be hiring this pool of people to plan and coordinate my own wedding. When the function was over, I lingered for a while in the reception area as I watched the service staff quickly break down the tables, and pack all their instruments and things to return them to their catering center. After all the fuss in the preparation and the realization of this big event, the lovely celebration—which just a couple of minutes ago had been unfolding before my eyes—came to a close. It was beautiful, lovely, and highly commendable.
