What makes you qualified to be a Wedding professional?
I am a Certified Wedding Planner (CWP) through The Bridal Society, the nation's leading wedding planning certification program. Not only am I certified but I actively pursue continuing education courses to keep up with the latest trends and wedding practices.
How far in advance should I book a wedding planner or month-of-coordinator?
Helloooo, as soon as you've set your wedding date, silly!!! Once you've selected a partial planning package, we pretty much hit the ground running to start building your "Dream Team" of vendors. If you've selected a month-of-coordination package and we're several months out ... you still get VIP access to the online planner where you'll receive my custom timeline, list of fabulous vendors and design studio along with monthly check-ins via email. Take advantage of ALL the perks! Here's a fun post directly from my blog on Why You Should Hire A Wedding Planner. Go check it out ... like right now! =)
I'm already working with a Catering Manager oR coordinator at my venue, and he/she is VERY helpful. Why do I need your help?
Oh boy, I've actually written an awesome post on my blog where I go into full detail on how different our roles actually are. Go check it out! >> 5 Things Your Venue Coordinator Won't Do
Will I lose control of my own wedding after hiring YOU?
Oh NOOO! ... that is NOT how I role! Your wedding is a magical day when YOUR life-long dream comes true, not mine. As your wedding planner it is my job to guide you through a stress-free planning process while providing expert advice, resources and seamless execution of YOUR big day.
What areas do you serve? Are you available for travel?
I currently serve the Charlotte, NC and surrounding area (50 mile radius) but I love to travel. Thinking of Asheville, Boone, Outer Banks or any of the other awesome cities North Carolina has to offer? Let me know and I'm there!
I am planning a destination wedding in Charlotte, but I live in another city/state/country, can you help me?
Absolutely! Depending on your service package, I'd do all or most of the ground work for you. We'd communicate mostly through email, Skype or FaceTime and when you're in town, I'd plan full days of meetings and tours to maximize our time together.
What forms of payment will you accept and Do you offer payment plans?
I accept PayPal, Card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover & AMEX), Cash and Certified Check. You may choose to pay the full amount upfront or a 50% deposit at booking with the final balance due 30 days prior to your wedding.
