FAQs for Your Planner

I wanted to use this post as an opportunity to share some of the common questions asked to planners.  Please use these questions to vet professionals you are considering so that you can find your best fit.  Enjoy!

 

WHY DO I NEED A PLANNER? I CAN PLAN MY OWN WEDDING WITH THE HELP OF MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY!

The statement here is one hundred percent true.  You can!  In fact, I planned my own wedding with friends and family.  This is definitely an option, however, I honestly would have rather enjoyed that time with them as opposed to running around trying to make things happen.  Check out the “Why This Planner Wished She Had a Planner” post for details.  Ultimately, there is nothing wrong with planning your own wedding however, the time consuming tasks can be unwelcomed if your life is already busy.  “What if the cake is not delivered on time?  Did I remember to pay that last vendor?  Oh no, I left something at home!”  All real questions and concerns that a bride should not be having while putting on the perfect dress or walking down the aisle.  Having a planner takes the stress and pressure off the couple so they can enjoy what is truly important.  I want you to enjoy every moment from engagement to the “I dos” because that is what you deserve.

 

CAN I AFFORD A WEDDING PLANNER?

Yes!  The key is to find the right fit for you, the couple, and your budget.  I am not the planner for everyone and that is okay!  I provide services that are tailored to you.  What does that mean?  It means you don’t pay for what you don’t want or need and we invest wisely on areas that will make the day what you want it to be.  With my expertise and relationships, I can guide you through prioritizing what’s most important, help pair you with complementary vendors and keep you from wasting money on things that don’t fit your needs. 

 

DO YOU ONLY PLAN ONE STYLE OF WEDDING?

Of course not!  Think of me as the ring master.  We plan out a customized wedding that will have guests smiling from ear to ear as they experience an event that is uniquely your own.  You are the star in the spotlight, as you should be, and I’m ensuring that you shine brilliantly.  I’m juggling of the budget, raising the bar on exquisite meal choices and assisting vendors in jumping through hoops with easy as it all comes together flawlessly.  I’ve done very traditional and corporate events as well as modern and glamourous events!  I pride myself in making your dream a reality.  If your vision is a little blurry, I’m right here to shed light on the possibilities.  Overall, I do not discriminate and service all ceremonies and styles.

 

WHAT MAKES YOU DIFFERENT THAN OTHER PLANNERS AND WHY SHOULD WE HIRE YOU?

I’m Bree.  Each day I get to work with loving, thoughtful and fabulous couples who want a memorable wedding with attention to detail that is reflective of who they are.  I have the opportunity to give them a stress free and unparalleled planning experience.  What you may not know is that I’m a military spouse and have an engineering background, so problem solving, design and being flexible is what I do best.  I pride myself in personally connecting with each client and believe that EVERY MOMENT is worth celebrating!  I want you to enjoy every moment together, even during planning, as the wedding is only the launch event to a phenomenal marriage.  For me there is nothing like cultivating a color palate, curating details to match an individuals’ style and marrying all elements of taste, sound and visual décor to create a moment that is remembered for a lifetime.  Why?  Because the weddings and events I do are like my gift to each client, which surpasses any investment.  I’d love to make this happen with you.
