Just Say No!

We believe the best weddings are those that represent our clients personalities, tastes, likes and feel.  So when working with a client, we always want them to feel comfortable saying NO!  I know, it sounds funny right?  But here is the deal. We will take your vision and your explanations of your vision and create ideas for you.

But here is the deal, No one is perfect, Your explanation may not be 100% a vendors suggestion may not be 100%, but the fact that it's your wedding is 100%.  Which means Say NO if you are not 100% on the suggestion.

As a wedding planner I want every bride (even if they are not working with us) to walk away from their wedding saying "it was everything we wanted"

Here is the deal, If you don't want pipe and drape to cover a wall, just say no, if you don't want a certain flower in your arrangements, just say no.  If you don't want a particular food, just say no.  It is just that easy and no professional will try to force you into something just because they "think" they know better.  A professional may explain why they have recommended something heavily but in the end it is up to YOU!

This also applied to family and friends.  Believe it or not we hear more from our clients about how stressed the planning process is because of family more than anything else.  "Aunt Jane, says I need to have roses", "Cousin Sara said I have to have the same dress for all my bridesmaids" "my mom says I need flower girls" All great suggestions but if you aren't going to be happy about it on your day then just say NO!

Our dream clients, know what they want, want something that represents them and their relationship and most importantly can speak their mind with what they want.  In your first meeting with us you will hear us say, "if we suggest something and you do not like it just tell us. We are married and have already had our day, this is YOUR day!"

So do things differently, do things the same, but do them YOUR way!
