Planner vs No Planner
Weddings are scary, especially to someone who has never planned one or been to one. Sometimes the planning process can even be painful to the experienced bride who has watched every single one of her friends take the plunge. Some people have a knack for organization but have no vision on how to create the perfect atmosphere for their guests. Others are so creative that they simply lose track of their budget and their minds! The best advice that I can give to someone getting married is the same advice I would give to someone building a new home: get to the planner/coordinator/designer first! You may only need their help for a day or you may want them to help you with each step you take all the way to your honeymoon get- a- away car. The thing that is the most important about meeting with them first is that they have done this countless numbers of times so their knowledge and experience will be the most helpful to you. Maybe you already have the color palette you want but you have no idea where to get the linens you want to rent for the reception space? Well we can help you select the right textures and lengths to convey your theme. Maybe you know you want calla lily’s and orchids in your bouquet but you do not know the best florist to get that really cool tree centerpiece you saw in a bridal magazine, we can help you with that too! Most people think it costs a fortune to hire someone to help coordinate everything when in reality a good coordinator can save you time, money and heartache. We can help you create a realistic budget, organize and help you select your vendors and set up everything for your big day. We can even carry around your mother’s purse and your lip gloss for touch ups during the wedding day. Most all the coordinators, including us, will customize a package that will work for your budget, style and needs. Do not be afraid to call and have a consult, I promise whether you choose us or anyone else in the business you will not regret it. Do we make mistakes? Does everything always run perfect? Well, no it doesn’t. But I bet that it would be so much easier to handle a crisis with a friend than by yourself on your wedding day. You never get to relive this day again, why not make it as stress free and as perfect as it can be by hiring someone who can take it there. Do not let your wedding day slip away without being touched by someone to can truly show the world who you are as a couple.
