We recently rolled out our Intimate Wedding Package as our response to the COVID pandemic. This was created because so many of our clients have had to postpone and reschedule their weddings. This of course is such a hard situation and very emotional because of all of the planning that has gone into preparing for the wedding you envision. Since it appears that we will have some limitations for the foreseeable future on gatherings, we decided we wanted to HELP couples that decide they want to go ahead and get married, but have the large celebration later.

Our job as Planners requires that we be creative, flexible, and pro-active, and reduce the stress of our clients. We want the planning process to be easy and we have the tools and connections to ensure that it is. With that in mind, we have created an Intimate Wedding Package. You can make this a one-stop shop for putting together a beautiful celebration. We have partnered with some of Orlando’s best vendors and venues to bring to our couples special pricing and packages. These are not available to couples on their own or even with another Planner.

We are highlighting another one of our venue partners that would be a perfect place for your wedding. Details included here relate to our Intimate Wedding Package, however, if you are interested in planning a larger celebration, we have a variety of planning packages for you to select from based on your needs.

So without further ado, here’s the details for your I Do’s!

Why Hire a Wedding Planner?

Posted in Planning Tips and Information, Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:25 am by JBEvents

n-WOMAN-STRESSED-628x314

Stressed Bride

There are so many things that a professional Wedding/Event Planner can assist with to make planning your wedding or special event easier and less stressful.

Let me first ask this question –

How many hours on average does it take to plan a wedding?

A.  25-50 hrs   B.  100-150 hrs   C:  150-300 hrs   D:  400-600 hrs                                           (Read on to find out the answer)

When consulting with my clients, I am listening to pick up on information not only for the vision of the event but for other specific things that can impact the overall details of planning and the stress level of the client.  For instance, if the client has very limited time to spend planning the wedding, they should select a full-service planning package.  While the cost of the full-service package might be more of the budget than anticipated, care should be given to consider all that the Planner is able to do, from sourcing and securing the venue and proposals, to developing the vision, negotiating contracts, maintaining the budget, providing guidance on etiquette, consult on custom stationery and event branding, design a floor plan, construct a wedding day schedule, communicate with all vendors, as well as orchestrating the entire event to ensure a smooth and flawless wedding, to just name a few. There are so many tasks that a Planner handles behind the scenes to ensure that any emergencies are handled without the client having to know, we keep things running smoothly to ensure that all vendors are able to perform their contracted services in a timely manner and we handle packing up all of your items at the end of the reception so that you or your family don’t have to.   All of these details require many hours to complete and as a bride with already restricted time constraints as well as not being familiar with all that goes into planning a wedding – the stress factor drastically increases.

If you choose option D in the question above for the number of hours to plan a wedding, you are correct!!!!  Yes, that’s correct – 400 – 600 hours to plan a wedding from start to finish. If you consider how much time you have available between the time you become engaged until your wedding, keeping in mind your work/school schedule as well as having personal time as well, this will help you to determine just how much help you may need.  A professional planner can save you time since we will already know the venues and vendors to contact based upon your budget and vision, whereas trying to do this on your own is a daunting task.

Stressed bride ecard

Many times brides will think that hiring a planner is a luxury, but considering that we can provide referrals to appropriate vendors to accommodate the budget, style and overall vision which can result in discounts that would not be garnered on your own, the savings can balance out the fee for our service. Not only that, but don’t forget, we are able to save you time and that is something you can’t put a price tag on.  One thing I always tell my clients is that it is important to maintain and cultivate your relationship during the planning process because you are preparing for a MARRIAGE not just the wedding day.

Some times brides think that a wedding planner will insist on the vision for the wedding, but that is not the case (at least with my company).  We are there to offer suggestions and provide advice, and to align our client with the best vendors to achieve the vision.  My goal is to always produce the wedding my couple desires.  While I have had clients task me with making all of the decisions, that certainly is not the norm.

If you or someone you know is getting married, do yourself or them a favor and have them contact us so that you/they can experience stressfree planning and a flawless wedding.
