As we talked about how we wanted to frame our Christmas giveaways this year, we really wanted to focus them on experiences. We wanted to give you the gift of time, because we know the engagement period can be stressful and chaotic! (As well as joyful and exciting!) Today’s giveaway is possibly the most direct representation of that: we’re taking tasks off your plate with the addition of a literal extra pair of hands! :)
TaskRabbit is an online and mobile marketplace that matches freelance labor with local demand, allowing consumers to find immediate help with everyday tasks, including cleaning, moving, delivery and handyman work — AND WEDDING TO DOS! Whee! Our TaskRabbit friends sent over a few real-life examples from past wedding clients to get your wheels turning:
— We’re having a polo game at our wedding and we need two people to work as flaggers for the event. A flagger is someone who waves a flag when a goal is made.
— Tie ribbons on a small cardboard box for 500 guests.
— I need some help hanging handmade dream catchers from tree branches for my wedding.
— Need you to purchase a *HUGE* teddy bear from Cosco and then drive it 2 hours upstate to a wedding venue. Please make sure you have space in the car for the teddy bear.
— Write all my 300+ thank you cards before my wife realizes I still haven’t done them…
— Our dog sitter bailed last minute! We are getting married in 2 hours and need someone to stay with our dog for 5 hours tonight.
— Wedding proposal setup, need someone to be a photographer to capture the whole thing and the other to help me carry table, chairs, flowers, food, wine to a remote location – about 3/4 mile hike. Bring your hiking game. Need one person to stay with setup until we arrive on hike. Please hide when you see us.
— Need a male, attractive bartender (minimal to no bartending skills needed, must be able to lift 7lbs) to dress in a tux or sharp suit and issue compliments to bride and guests from 11am-1:30pm.
— Need someone to help bride and groom at wedding ceremony as a personal secretary. Must be well-dressed in a suit and tie.
Fun, right? :)
