*Wedding Planners are there to negotiate exactly what you want for the best deal possible while maintaining the best quality of the service or product.
*Wedding Planners are there to keep you on track and prevent overspending. They will prioritize the wedding details so you can get everything you want without going over budget.
ding Planners will also save you time. They will do all of the calling, setting up appointments, research for the perfect venue and vendors that fit in your budget and design ideas. They will create planning checklists to keep you calm and organized.
What separates me: I feel that my calm personality helps the bride stay calm during the planning process as well as on the wedding day when things can become chaotic. I also have a great eye for design. I can take small idea of the brides and really transform it in something more!
