Why Hire a Wedding Planner?

Don’t know what a wedding planner does? Is the only image that comes to mind, J. Lo. from the Wedding Planner movie?  You are not alone.

Many people come to me not quite sure what a wedding planner does, they just know that they are seeking some relief for their wedding day.

Therefore, we have put together a little educational video on what wedding planners support you with- including:

1)  Making the planning process and your wedding weekend as stress-free as possible.

2) Saving you money!  Yup.  And support with all budget related items.

3) Save you time.

4)  We keep you focused and excited about everything “wedding”- because sometimes, it is just a little overwhelming.

How to Plan a Vail, Colorado Wedding

I had the honor of working with Bridget and Brett during their September 2011 wedding weekend.  It was a wedding filled with so much love and laughter- and what was palpable was the importance of family and friends.  From Bridget’s brother officiating, to their 2 dogs walking down the aisle, to the stylish wedding party, to the kids tearing it up on the dance floor, to the skype call with their grandfather who couldn’t make it into town…everybody was made to feel like they were part of the fam’.  The couple’s intention…crazy fun!  And that is what they created with the help of the Donovan Pavilion with its gorgeous backdrop and versatility, and Funkiphino serenading them into their life together.

What I loved with this couple was their attention to detail (so fun for a wedding planner), and that they were not afraid to include their personality.  Who needs champagne?  Beer for toasts it was :)!  Brett is also an artist with Tarazzo Vintage Original, and being the amazing artist that he is, he created a logo for their wedding weekend.  This logo and design translated into being printed on the tote bags  they gave to each guest with their welcome gifts, to the programs, to the escort cards, to the table signs, to the matted frame they had for their guestbook.

(If you are interested in creating a logo for your event and you are not an artist- do not despair.  Their are many companies out there who will do this for you. So have fun with it!  Be creative!)

Bridget and Brett, thank you for allowing me to share your beautiful day.  I had a blast meeting your family and friends and watching you all dance the night  away…

Plus- as a wedding planner, I always love to hear the guests exclaim, “best wedding ever!”
