So you just got engaged. Yay!!! Cue the champagne and confetti cannon! But when the champagne bottle’s empty and the confetti is all swept up, you’re faced with one of the toughest questions: what now?
Planning a wedding can be an exciting journey, but as you start thinking about all the details, decisions, and research involved, it can quickly become overwhelming. With a full-time job or other commitments, finding time and energy to plan can be challenging, even with a helpful friend or family member. But what happens when a family member’s opinions become too much or the wedding weekend arrives and they want to enjoy the fun? This is where a wedding planner can step in and alleviate the stress, guide you through the decision-making process, and ensure that you and your loved ones can fully enjoy the day. Your wedding day experience is literally our job!
Wedding planners are industry experts who can offer invaluable resources to create a personalized, beautiful, and seamless event while operating with your budget. A planner allows you (and anyone else involved in the planning process) the chance to focus on the overall details and the “fun” parts of the planning process (menu tasting, design, etc.) while they handle the logistics and back and forth details with the vendors involved.

We’re basically your wedding day fairy godmothers.

While planning packages offer many essential services, there are countless other tasks that your planner can do to ensure a stress-free and enjoyable experience for you and your loved ones. Some of these unknown services are:
Ultimately, a wedding planner is an essential investment that brings expertise, experience, and peace of mind to your special day. Trust your planner and know that they have your best interests at heart; our whole business is built out of “Best Day Ever”s!
