Great advice from Martha Stewart Weddings

I don't know how many of you eagerly await the new month's copy of Martha Stewart Weddings in the mail like we do, but I tear into it like a kid at Christmas. This month they had a great piece in the Q&A section about using a wedding planner, and I wanted to share this excerpt...

"Q: We don't think we'll need - nor can we afford - a full-service planner, but we might need some help. What are our options?

It depends. If you'll need some suggestions for finding reputable florists, photographers, and venues whose rates will fit your needs, arrange for a consultation with an experienced wedding planner. Joyce Scardina Becker of Events of Distinction in San Francisco says paying for about three hours of her time could help you allocate your budget (don't worry if it's small, she stresses) and find pros to interview.

This is great advice! A talented and experienced planner has the goal not to spend all your money, but to show you the ways to spend what you've got wisely, to achieve the look and feel you're going for as closely as possible.

Williamson County Weddings offers hourly consultations at the rate of $150 an hour, in which we can assist you with several important tasks, including budget allocation, scheduling assistance, vendor recommendations, and styling. Questions? Call us today at 615.465.8099!
