Happy New Year!  And, if you became engaged over the holidays – CONGRATULATIONS!  This is an exciting time for you and you may want to jump right into the planning of your wedding!

My advice to you today is – BREATHE!  Just breathe!  Planning a wedding can be a daunting and overwhelming task – but I can help you not only have an enjoyable journey from saying “Yes” to saying “I do”, but also help you have a stress-free wedding day!  Yes, you want your guests to have an enjoyable time at your wedding – but so should YOU!  After all, your wedding isn’t just an average every day event – it is a celebration of the love you share with your fiancé and it is a day when you join together in marriage.  Your wedding should not just be “fun” – it should also reflect your feelings for each other, your interests, and your dreams.

Give yourself a little time to relax before you delve into deciding on a wedding date, searching for a venue, selecting your wedding colors or deciding on a theme.  But, once you start thinking about your wedding, the questions will come at you like a bolt of lightning!

·       Where should we get married?

·       Should we have our ceremony and reception at the same venue?

·       What kind of food do we want to serve?

·       What style wedding do we want?

·       How many people do we want to invite?

·       Should we have a DJ or a live band?

·       How are we going to pay for everything?

·       How do we decide where to seat our guests?

These are just a few of the myriad of questions that you will have – planning a wedding takes time, organization and attention to detail.  But you don’t have to be stressed about it.  I am certified as an International Event & Wedding Planning Professional, and have 15 years of experience planning weddings as well as corporate/municipal events for previous employers.  I am not only extremely organized and detail-oriented, but have a creative eye and can handle all of the vendor contracts, meetings and plans while you simply give the okay and enjoy the journey!  I will work closely with you on color schemes, themes, décor selections, vendor selections, seating arrangements, and managing your wedding budget.  You have the vision – and I have the professional contacts and expertise to turn your vision into a reality!
