You’re engaged…Congratulations! It’s such an exciting time for you and your fiancé. You’re engaged for a day or two and suddenly everyone is asking…when, where, how many people…Where do you start? Hiring a Wedding Planner will remove all of the stress that can come along with the long list of decisions that you will have to make in the coming months. A Wedding Planner will utilize their years of experience to help you create and manage a flawless event.
So what do I do and how can I help?
Kelly Strong Events is a full-service firm which means we handle everything related to the design and planning of your event. I will source venues and present you with a detailed list with the important facts. Based on your style and event design, I will recommend vendors (think rentals, photographers, florist, decor specialists, entertainment, transportation, etc.) and manage negotiation of the contracts with the vendors you decide to work with. I’ll build a budget and track expenses (so important!) I am there to offer suggestions and advice along the way. I will build an entire weekend timeline to ensure everything is flawless.
Many brides hear that their venue has an onsite planner so they think that they’re covered – and they are definitely correct to a certain degree. Onsite planners are experts when it comes to their venue and they are critical in a successful event. Unfortunately, your venue is only one vendor you will work with. You will work with at least five additional vendors, which means coordinating the details and timing of a lot of moving pieces.
Beyond event logistics, your Wedding Planner will assist with the vision and design of the event. You tell me the look and feel you’re hoping to achieve and I will present you with various ways to accomplish your goal, keeping your venue and budget in mind. Whether that is through furniture rentals, floral design, or special installations – we can help you turn a space into something made of dreams.
