3. What's one thing you wish couples knew about wedding planners/coordinators + why you think it's important to have one:
All too often, I think couples look at having a “wedding planner” as a luxury, or something only the select few get to have. But the truth is, not having a wedding planner or coordinator for your wedding isn’t all that different from buying or selling a house without a realtor. Yes, you can absolutely go through the process on your own, but when it comes knowing the in’s and out’s of the wedding world, nothing beats a great planner.
There are so many tiny (and ginormous) details when it comes to planning an event and it can be impossible to know everything. What’s worse is that you don’t know what you don’t know, so how are you even supposed to know what you might be forgetting?
I specialize in logistics and making sure the day comes together in a way that is reflective of the couple, but also takes every ounce of guest experience into consideration. My team and I coordinate every last detail, from the hair and makeup, to transportation, to guest lodging, to photography, and more. Whether couples need help planning the whole shebang, or just want someone there to bounce ideas off of, we are typically present on the wedding day to make sure all the plans are coming together, taking care of setup and allowing the couple to TRULY enjoy every aspect of their day. (Something they won’t be able to do if they’re worried about managing their entire team of vendors on their own)
After every wedding, I ask my clients for feedback and thoughts about working with me. In most cases, they say we were one of the “best investments” they made for their wedding. To me, that means the world and I can’t ask for anything more.
