Wedding Planner Service Description
Available in the 7 counties of the Twin Cities Metro
Hello! Feeling overwhelmed by miriad choices, and meetings, and price schemes out there?
You're not the first one!
And, more importantly, you need not be alone!
Getting married is one of the biggest and best days of your life!! Planning weddings is my passion because I know how important this day is, how much every details matters, and because I get to share in the joy and happiness of your day.
For a wedding to be a wonderful event, a lot of thinking and careful planning is needed so that everyone and everything comes together just at the right time, just like the steps of a serene dance, with romantic music in the background and a happy ending just under the horizon.
First, you need a good foundation, the Planning Service. This means we'll spend some quality time and envision the day, all things that need to happen and get purchased,create schedules for the months ahead and for the wedding day so you know exactly what's coming and when, so you can be organized and relaxed.
Once you have a plan, you can go ahead and shop and compare and worry till you drop :) I know it's a lot of work and it's hard because you want it all to be perfect. If you have the energy and time to do all that, once you have a plan, you are good to go. If you want some help along the way, then consider the Worry Free Service, so that there is the two of us from start to happily ever after... well, just up to that moment, because the happily ever after it's up to you and him.
The Wedding Day Service: on your wedding day, you will be on heels and in an impossibly impractical dress, however incredibly pretty. You will wear a fabulous hair do, and incredible make-up. The problem with these, of course, is that they tend to get messed up if you try to run after vendors and relatives that have not quite memorized your plan. That is why you need someone to run, bring, check, look, tell, yell (ok, no yelling), and keep everyone and everything in line so they do what you want and need, without having you lose your cool, or sweat or even get mad. Have you ever hosted a party and worked so hard that you did not have time to enjoy it and it felt like you weren't even there? I imagine you have. So, don't miss your own wedding, let me suffer in your stead!

|Before you get too far down the road of making reservations, and shopping and organizing, it's good to lay a plan on paper, create a budget and figure out how far in advance you need to arrange each vendor, from ceremony site to tuxes and dresses.||A lot of things and people and vendors need to come together on your wedding day, at the right time, in the right order. Someone needs to make this happen. It could be you, the bride, and then your day will be long and stressful. Or, it could be me, and you'd be all smiles, relaxed in the knowledge that everything will be just right.||Get organized before you start, and pampered on your wedding day, and have a friend and sounding board throughout your planning journey. This is the Planning Service with the Wedding Day Service, plus a shoulder to lean on throughout.|
