Ashley recently finished a 15 week internship with You're The Bride and I always like to give our interns an exit interview so we can learn more about what they thought about their experience and if we can do anything better. She is a senior at Lake Orion High School and she certainly impressed me with positive attitude no matter what task I assigned. She is an amazing young woman and I am so lucky to have met her. She made great contributions to the team! 'm so happy that she felt she learned so much from her time with me. I will miss her! Here are a few of the questions we asked her!
1. What things did you enjoy about the internship?
I enjoyed making the christmas card and flyers for holidays and promotions. I also enjoyed putting together the bathroom basket and researching ideas and decor for weddings. I loved being able to see all of the elements come together on the wedding day
This was a very valuable experience for me. I did not know much about planning a wedding before my internship. I now know what it takes to plan a wedding from the beginning stages to the wedding day.
I learned that they are a lot of little details that make up a wedding. I also learned that there are many things that need to be done after the event, not just before.
My favorite part of my experience at You’re The Bride was going to the weddings and seeing all the different venues and wedding styles. I loved seeing how you were able to use the brides vision and create a wedding that embodied it.
I did not have anything specifically that I did not like. For me personally it was sometimes challenging to balance my school work, cheerleading, and the internship. Even though I was very busy I thought that it was a lot of fun doing this internship and I was able to learn a lot.
When we met I learned a lot that I didn’t know. I know that it was very challenging for us to both find time to meet. I think that future interns would benefit greatly by meeting with you like I was able to.
I do not have any plans on working for another event planner. I really enjoy event planning but I would like to follow through with my plan of going to school for marketing. This internship allowed me so show my creativity and I can incorporate that into marking. I also learned how to write blogs and make timelines, this can help me tremendously in my future.
I had a lot of fun learning about all of the elements that go into wedding planning. I was able to learn a lot and experience something that I never experienced before.
