Wedding Consultants and Coordinators

Planning and coordinating
your wedding will be so
fun and easy, right?

Wedding consultants/coordinators
are usually considered luxury services,
but are in fact as much of a necessity
for a wedding as a professional DJ, florist or baker.
Yes, you could hook your portable music player up to
the sound system and have your cousin push the buttons.
Yes, you can go to the wholesale district, buy a truckload
of flowers and arrange them yourself the day before your wedding.
And yes, Aunt Mary can bake her famous lemon cream cake and swirl
little rosettes all over it. So why not also have your recently
married sister (who will only be 7 months pregnant at your wedding)
coordinate it, since her wedding went beautifully? Because
that's not the kind of service you need on your one day to shine.
A product is a product, but professional service is what makes
the difference.

Walking with you through the process of planning of Your Day,
addressing every detail and ensuring the least amount of friend,
family, and hair-loss possible is what wedding consultants do best.
We allow for all of your loved ones to celebrate with you, not work
for you, on your wedding day by providing you with a team of quality
professionals to carry out the flawless execution of your plans.
Planners can be there from the beginning to answer any questions
you may have, and stay with you until the last light goes out and the
hall is empty.
We've seen what works and what doesn't so your wedding doesn't
end up as a case study in “What Not to Do”. Our job is to make sure
every element of your Wedding day - the most important day of your
life - goes As You Like… If you don't remember anything going wrong,
then we've done our job just right!

So rather than trying to do it all yourself or stressing your family
and friends, make sure you budget for a consultant. Your peace of
mind is worth every penny.

Plus you won't have that little worry wrinkle in the middle of your
forehead in all of your pictures!

What Getting Married Means

Getting Married Means You'll Have

Getting married means you'll have
Someone's hand to hold,
Even when you're feeling sick,
Even when you're old.

It means when you sit down to eat,
Someone will be there,
So you won't have to tell your day
To an empty chair.

It means that you can have some kids
Just like a mom and dad,
And play with them all afternoon,
Except when they are bad.

It means that when you need some help,
Someone will help out,
Someone always near to you
So you won't have to shout.

But best of all is when it's time
To turn out all the lights:
You won't have to be alone
Those long and scary nights.

So even though you don't have toys,
You don't have to care:
Once you're married you can be
Each other's teddy bear!
