Between going to school full time during the week, working at the bridal shop on weekends, and freelancing doing makeup every chance that I get, it was a no brainer for me to hire a wedding planner. I figured that not only would she save me time, but also money. However, my initial search was a bust (you can read about it here) and I figured I'd do it all myself - I've been engaged since May and nothing has been booked - there's been no progress - I need help.
While searching online I some how came across a wedding coordinator who specialized in budget weddings. I browsed her website and decided to give her a call - we talked for about 20 minutes. She seemed extremly knowleagde and assured me that I could have a quality wedding at any budget and that she had a list of vendors that she could provide me with, who have "special rates" for her clients. She told me about caterers for $21-$26 per person - but of course I don't have access to even the names of these companies unless I become her client. But the best thing about her is her affordability - what she charges for Full Planning Service is the fee for only The Day of Coordination for some planners!
She emailed my fiance and I a questionairre in order to find out exactly what type of event we want and what we expect. She will then send us a proposal (free of charge) to look over and then we can take it from there.
I'm so excited about her, and ready to get things moving for 09! OOOOOOOOWWWWW!
