Wedding Planners

Have you ever thought about shift patterns for wedding planners?

Hotel Wedding Planners have to work long Saturdays and be available during the week to liaise with other suppliers. This means that they need a shift pattern. Ideally a holidays included one to ensure that their holidays do not affect their work, especially during the summer (their busiest time).

The other good thing about using a shift pattern is that everyone knows when they are available, including their clients and suppliers. In the run up to a wedding they could be available everyday and have their time off at another time.

A typical shift pattern for a wedding planner would be:



A shift pattern like this is based on a 40 hour week, with breaks included and 35 days of holiday per year including Bank Holidays. There are two shifts D which is a normal 8-hour day shift and WD, a 12 hour day shift for Wedding days. This shift pattern gives three fortnight breaks and five weekly breaks per year.

Large hotels with multiple weddings planners need a shift pattern for them to maximize their availability and weddings.
