Who hires a Wedding Planner and why should I?

Most couples these days are working professionals and are simply too busy to plan a wedding with its many details. Wedding planning can be overwhelming and stressful when you do not have the time that is needed to put into it.  Your wedding is such an important – and expensive – event in your life:  it makes sense to hire a professional to assist you during the process.  I have all of the relationships, and work with only the best wedding professionals, so you can rest assured that every member of your wedding team will be giving 100% to make your wedding fantastic.

And best of all – having a Wedding Planner means that you (AND your friends and family) can relax and enjoy all of the amazing experiences and emotions that come on your wedding day without being stressed. There are a million other reasons, but chances are, if you’re reading this, you already know why you need a Wedding Planner!

What will a Wedding Planner cost?

I have strong relationships with the most reputable wedding suppliers and I know about those unneeded extra costs that come along with weddings.  I can help you avoid budgetary pre-wedding and post-wedding stress.

I want to plan my own wedding but I would like some of your advice.  Is there any way to get your advice without becoming a full planning client?

Yes, I have a DIY Bridal Program option designed just for you.

I am concerned about being involved with the planning process and losing my vision in the process. Can I still hire a Planner and be involved?

Absolutely!! My best weddings are designed with your vision, style and personality in mind. This is YOUR wedding and having your input is absolutely critical to the overall outcome. In fact, I want you to get excited about planning your special day, it is solely up to you what you want your level of involvement to be. My role is to execute the vision you have for your wedding and provide insight and feedback along the way to make the process smooth.

Also, I cherish the relationships with couples that I have built over the years during the wedding planning process.  Take a look at what others are saying about working with me as a wedding planner.
