- Even if you are doing most of the planning yourself, KUDOS TO YOU for recognizing the need for a professional to execute all of your hard work. You have made the smart decision to not throw everything on family and friends on the wedding day. Not only can many things go wrong, but, it could very easily stress an inexperienced person to their limits, and that person will not be able to enjoy the event as a guest and will end up feeling like event staff.
- its also great peace of mind for those who are not DIY brides. Please keep in mind that most venues may say they have a "wedding coordinator" but that person works for the venue....they are hired by the venue to make sure you don't go over your allotted time, don't damage the facility, etc. We honor house rules but the difference is WE WORK FOR YOU! Your happiness is our #1 priority on your wedding day.
