I DO... WEDDINGS

Making Your Wedding Dreams A Reality

We take great care in collaborating with you to best achieve your goals. Regardless of how extravagant or simple your event may be, your budget shouldn't compromise the quality of your event.
From events as large as 500 to as intimate as 30, no event is too big or too small. Private mansions, estates, museums, gardens, hotels, and clients’ own homes, no location is off limits! Your needs could be as simple as needing an assistant for the day to as detailed as full planning, styling and coordinating of your event. I Do...Weddings can help you determine what your needs are and help you fulfill them.

The Top 5 Reasons Couple's Hire a Wedding Planner

1. You have little or no free time to plan- The average wedding takes over 200 hours to plan! Hiring a wedding planner can save you time by researching vendors, making phone calls, keeping up with timelines, budgets, and more!

2. You want to save money- Because wedding planners provide so much business to vendors, they are often able to negotiate discounts for their clients. Wedding planners are also there to help couples set budgets and stick to them.

3. You want a stress free wedding day- Wedding planning and the events that lead up to your day will be stressful. We will manage even the smallest details from the budget to all the different things that will require hiring or contracting wedding vendors. Your job is to be the bride. You need time to take in and enjoy this special time with your loved ones.

4. You want something unique and memorable- Wedding planners are innovative with their ideas and themes. A good planner is up-to-date with the latest trends in marriages. Yes, marriages also have trends! Who doesn't want their weddings to be the best and the most memorable?

5. You have a vision and would like a wedding planner to help you make your dreams a reality- Most brides have been dreaming of their wedding day their entire life. Wedding planners work FOR the couple to ensure that all dreams are met!

Services

Depending on the needs of each couple, our fees are billed hourly, or on a percentage basis. We are able to help as little or as much as you may need. Keeping in mind that each couple is different and will want us to perform different tasks, we have prepared an a la carte menu from which each couple can pick and choose the services they need. They, in turn, will only pay for those services, nothing more and nothing less. We are also able to offer packages that include anything from vendor referrals to full-service planning.
