Being an Oh My Occasions® ambassador means you are part of a luxury planning experience for newly engaged couples and individuals celebrating milestone occasions. You are being entrusted with the care and quality of services being provided to our clients.
Oh My Occasions is a boutique luxury wedding and event planning firm. We specialize in weddings throughout South Florida and tailor our services to couples who are excited about getting married, and eager to embrace the unique details of their personalities. Oh My Occasions is owned and operated by Amber Schryver. We work with couples from all over the country, up to their wedding day and sometimes up to 2 years in advance. We offer different planning collections for couples at varying stages of the planning process and take great pride in the personalization we give to our clients, our team, and our events.
“Embracing your unique story and bringing your vision to life.”
What does this mean? It means no love story is the same… which makes our job so rewarding. We get to help two people in love celebrate that very special connection. We strive to embrace every unique story. We treat every wedding and its details as such- uniquely. No two clients get the exact same Vendor Matching List. No two clients will have the same style preferences or budget or personalities. That’s why it’s so important to embrace what makes each couple unique. We want our brides and grooms to embrace the quirky parts of their personalities, or the interesting background of their love story. By incorporating those details, we are able to truly bring their vision to life. We design, plan, and produce one-of-a-kind events that highlight each couple. Our goal is to have their guests walk into the wedding and say, “Wow! That’s sooooo them!” and “Of course they would do that!” That way, we know we’ve succeeded in dousing the event with that particular couple’s unique personalities.
Beginning with the initial phone consultation, Oh My Occasions takes the time to learn about our clients. We ask, “how did you meet?”, “what are you most excited for?”, “how can a planner help you most?” We personalize the client experience so that each couple feels the undivided attention we provide to them. This means we double check spelling. We refer to our brides or grooms by any nicknames they prefer to be called. We brief ourselves on the event information before meetings, calls, and event days, to ensure we remember the specific details. Each client is welcomed with a customized gift in the mail. This happens no later than one week after they book with Oh My Occasions. This initial “welcome” is the first impression clients have of the planning experience with Oh My Occasions, and a nice gesture like this is the perfect way to remind clients that their love story is important to us. Throughout the planning experience, we will attend consultations, tastings, samplings, walk throughs, and other in-person meetings. Each of those interactions with Oh My Occasions is filled with smiles, trustworthy advice, extensive note-taking, and questions about things that will help us better their planning details. Questions like, “do you envision giving your guests the choice of a meal on their RSVP?” The answer to this question will allow us as planners to then follow up with, “If you decide to let guests choose between two meals, you will need to remember to put the option on their RSVP, and additionally have a card at each guest’s seat on wedding day to denote what meal they chose.” We always give professional advice and honest communication, however, we firmly believe that there aren’t (m)any “right” or “wrongs” in weddings, merely whatever the bride and/or groom prefers.

A role as an Oh My Occasions ambassador will rely heavily on your interaction with the owner and lead planner, Amber. You will represent the Oh My Occasions brand through email communication, phone calls, social media, occasionally at in person meetings, and with the potential to assist on wedding days.
You are dedicated to quality. You are constantly asking what else you can do, before being told what’s next. You take the time to complete tasks carefully, paying special attention to your grammar, voice, and mannerisms. You present yourself in a professional manner during job-related activities and dress in appropriate attire according to what has been instructed. You’re always wearing a smile and looking for a solution to any setback. You are personable and keep cool under pressure. You are diligent, hardworking, and have a desire to please. You are respectful of others and keep personal situations out of the work place.
Being an Oh My Occasions ambassador means you are part of a luxury planning experience for newly engaged couples and individuals celebrating milestone occasions. You are being entrusted with the care and quality of services being provided to our clients. By not discussing confidential information, and treating each wedding as if it were your own, you are on your way to becoming the best ambassador for Oh My Occasions.
Virtual Work. You will be able to complete the majority of your research, client follow through, emails, and calls from anywhere with private Internet access. That means you can send emails and make your calls from the comfort of your couch snuggled next to your furry friend. Or maybe you’d rather set up at your favorite coffee shop. Perhaps you work best from the library. We don’t mind where you make your “office”, as long as you’re able to concentrate on your tasks.
In Person Occasions. You will be asked to attend wedding days as an assistant to the planner. This is the perfect opportunity to shadow a planner in action, after months or years of planning! Locations for these events range throughout the state of Florida, most often in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach, or Naples. The times of the events vary as well, and will be discussed with you before confirming you are available to help.
• obtain pricing, available dates, and other information from venues
• obtain pricing, available dates, packages, and other photos or links (when relevant) from vendors
• schedule meetings and appointments for Amber
• request adjustments on existing proposals, quotes, or packages from vendors
• schedule and post Instagram content
• customize and send existing brochures for clients
• update scheduling app availability for Amber’s calls and meetings
• contact vendors for upcoming events to schedule their arrival, setup, and breakdown times
• format timelines with vendors and distribute accordingly
• follow up with event inquiries and set initial pre-consultation intake form or other pertinent information
• must be available to assist on wedding days, most often weekends
We require all ambassadors to shadow three (3) event days before being paid as an event assistant. Wedding days require long and unusual hours, weekend commitment, an assortment of tasks, and a vast array of duties. Due to the flexible nature of different event details and logistics, we believe it truly takes at least three events to understand the complexity of the wedding planning profession.
You will always have your parking compensated and a vendor meal will be provided if you are on-site for more than 6 hours.
To be easily spotted on wedding day, we wear all black. Whether you opt for black dress pants with a black blouse/shirt or a black dress is up to you. Your attire should not have an inappropriate amount of skin showing: women’s cleavage should be tastefully covered, there will be no midriff tops, spaghetti straps, and loose pants that show any undergarments are unacceptable. We ask that you remove any lip or eyebrow piercings. Wear comfortable shoes (we suggest black, and no sneakers or flip flops) because you will likely be walking or standing all day.
There will be no tolerance for any cursing or racist comments. We expect you to act in a professional manner. Remember, this is someone’s wedding day. An important day like this needs to be handled with care, kind words, and respectful actions. Your cell phone should remain on vibrate or with a low volume appropriate ring tone (i.e. no vulgar lyrics). While weddings may require you to be away from a “vendor room” with drinks and snacks, we ask that you bring your own water and small snacks to hold you over until a provided vendor meal. This is especially important for long days and hot temperatures, to remain healthy and functioning. If you have a family or personal emergency, please contact Amber immediately. We ask that any texting or phone calls you make are wedding-related to the planner, other wedding assistants, or pertinent wedding party members. Please do not discuss your personal matters (what you did over the weekend, your love life, your recreational activities) in front of guests. This day is about our clients, not us. You are prohibited from speaking poorly about vendors, guests, clients, or anyone involved in the event during the wedding day, post wedding whether verbally or in writing. We always need to be prepared for guests or clients to be listening to our conversations, and these conversations need to be warm, appropriate, professional, and kind AT ALL TIMES.
You will be provided with the opportunity to assist at weddings and other social events alongside Amber and the Oh My Occasions team, with the potential to be a lead planner yourself. You will be introduced to some of the best vendors in South Florida while working at the most sought after venues. You will have your own email address for work purposes, along with business cards. You’ll gain access to exclusive planning programs and documents to understand the wedding industry in its entirety.
After extensive training and wedding day experience, there is an option to move to a Lead Planner position where you take on an entire wedding yourself.
You will be required to sign a nondisclosure, noncompete, and confidentiality contract to become a paid subcontractor.
