A wedding consultation is a great service for those brides who simply just need a little advice or guidance and may not have the full need to hire a coordinator. Consultations consist of questionnaires and discussion and are followed up with notes of our conversations and the necessary materials needed for your specific situation. The best part is that we can connect as many times as you need, whenever you need it! Below are some examples of topics that couples need help with the most:

·Connecting you with the best local vendors that fit your style and needs

·Helping to create and understand a general budget based off what is most important to you

·Contract reviews and how to negotiate better pricing and inclusions

·Establishing a wedding day timeline for you and your bridal party to follow through

Investment Starting at $200

With a long time passion for event planning, I got my start in 2018 when I switched career paths from the healthcare industry to the wedding industry. I began working weekends as a day-of coordinator’s assistant for local and out-of-state weddings while weekdays consisted of training courses to become “International Event & Wedding Professional” certified. Soon after, I was working full time as a wedding specialist at venues across the Chicagoland suburbs. I understand the process of being a bride and the crucial components of how wedding venues operate behind the scenes. Let’s get together and plan your wedding to perfection, I cannot wait to be part of your happily ever after!
