Why should I hire a wedding planner/coordinator? One of my friends or a family member can coordinate my wedding.
Planning a wedding requires a lot of work! From finding the right vendors to fit your style and budget, to selecting the right invitations and managing RSVPs, the wedding planning process is very time consuming. Our clients lead busy lives, working, going to school, taking care of their family and just trying to find time to spend with their fiancé. Adding 400-500+ hours of wedding planning to an already full schedule is difficult for most people. That's where we can step in and lighten the workload for our brides and grooms. We can take on as much (or as little) of the work as you need so that you can enjoy this exciting time rather than stressing over vendor contracts, budgets and everything else.
So why can't one of your friends or a family member serve as your wedding planner? Well, they most certainly can help you plan your wedding. However, the insight an experienced wedding planner can provide can make the difference between a perfect day and a disastrous one. Sourcing professional vendors can be hard. There are thousands of photographers, DJs, venues and caterers to choose from. While reviews online can be helpful in making this decision, having someone there who can speak about their level of service from experience can be invaluable. Working with a planner who is familiar with the price ranges for local vendors can also save you hours of time researching companies that end up being way out of budget.
An experienced wedding planner can also make cost-saving suggestions on everything from catering selections, to favors and decor so that you stay within your budget. A good wedding planner can also offer creative solutions to issues that arise in the planning process so that you can stay calm and keep on planning.
Lastly, we want your family and friends to be able to enjoy your big day with you! They don't need to be stressing about vendors showing up or where the cake should be setup so it doesn't melt before the reception. We want them to be there supporting you and enjoying these once in a lifetime moments with you! Look at our wedding planning packages to see which services would be the best fit for your budget and support needs. Need something custom? We are happy to make custom packages.

How are you different from a Venue Coordinator?
While venue coordinators are great resources for couples. they are often managing multiple events per weekend and have less time to devote to helping you work through the many details and questions you will inevitably have for your big day. With the many events they manage, they are often unable to meet more than once or twice in person.
A Wedding Planner's job is to serve as a guide throughout your wedding planning journey to help you make the best decisions for your wedding, and to help relieve the stress many couples feel when trying to plan the PERFECT day to share with family and friends. In short, they are there to support you in every aspect of your wedding planning process and their time is dedicated to making sure all the little details are covered.
Do you coordinate other events?
Yes! We are happy to step in and coordinate smaller events around your wedding including rehearsal dinners, after parties, post-wedding brunches and more. We would be delighted to add our professional touch to these events so you and your family can relax and enjoy the festivities. Check out our Add-on Wedding Services page for more info!
When in the planning process should we hire you?
Our schedules book up very quickly each year, so we strongly encourage couples to reach out to us as soon as they have a date in mind. However, we understand that things come up in the planning process and some couples do not realize they need a wedding planner's assistance until 4 months before the wedding. Not a problem! We are happy to step in to help at any point in the planning process. Ready to get started on your planning journey?
