Finding the right wedding planner is very important, because you will be spending the next 8 months to a year with them! Searching by price is just one of the factors, first you must find your wedding BFF, so make sure you get all the facts…
♥ Why I’m different from my peers?
I’ve been specializing in weddings for over 15 years. Starting as a bridal consultant & tuxedo specialist, boutique owner, wedding fashion buyer, to wedding stylist and planner. My love of details and my experiences in the industry makes me a true wedding expert.
♥ What do I do?
I’m the logistics and wedding muscle,You’re the inspiration! I offer you guidance and recommendations so you can truly make educational decisions best for your wedding day. You dream up your wedding design, or pin it together and I help create the style plan. On the wedding day I execute your details, act as the “Go To” for your dream team and guests so you get to enjoy every moment of your wedding.
♥ Why hire a Wedding Planner?
Because you don’t want to be a wedding statistic, most couples say after their wedding they wish they would have hired a wedding planner. Wedding planners are familiar with all the local professionals personalities, rates and experiences. With these relationships we save you time researching and extra costs, and reduce common day of situations that may occur. We are hired for our experiences, knowledge and solutions with wedding planning and coordination.
♥ What is the cost for your wedding services?
Depending on your various factors and wedding services you need from me, your investment can range from $850 – $5800. This range is very comparable to my peers of similar experience and reputation. Now our first meeting, I never charge because I want to make sure we are a good match before we commit to a long-term relationship.
♥ Why is there such a big difference in costs for wedding planners services?
Experience, education and skills! The average planner can coordinate a ceremony, research locations and vendors, even build a killer secret Pinterest board. But a professional wedding planner knows and understands the logistics and details needed to pull off a smooth, memorable and fun event every time.
♥ How many weddings do you book a year?
(10) Ten, I prefer to limit the weddings I plan. This way I truly have the time to develop the relationships and really know my couples’ weddings. Quality not quantities is important to me… Weddings have too many details involved for what services I provide, also for that reason I only book one event a day.
♥ Do you do this fulltime?
Yes, I just can’t do anything else but weddings. Planning, styling and creating fun & sophisticated events is what I have always done and if that makes me crazy then I admit I am a little crazy. If I am not personally planning weddings I am working with other wedding planners and coordinators in the northwest on their events or helping industry professionals with styling for trade show booths, inspiration shoots and marketing.
♥ Are you a member of any professional wedding organizations?
Yes, I am a member of Wedding Network USA. This is important to me and my business so I can receive ongoing professional education, stay on top of all the local trends and network with other local top wedding professionals.
♥ What is your position on Marriage Equality?
Our industry is to celebrate two people coming together and their love for one another. I feel that love doesn’t discriminate and either do I. Love is Love… Let’s Celebrate!
♥ What other celebrations do you plan?
I specialize in weddings, but I love me a good party! I have planned anniversaries, bridal showers, baby showers and other pre & post wedding parties.
