QUEEN PACKAGE- Full Service Wedding Planning  $3,995

This investment is ideal for the couple who have little to no time to plan and oversee all the wedding details and planning so they are looking to a professional to be there from start to finish. The leg-work, coordinating and responsibilities that need to be accomplished will be delegated to your wedding planner.

Hiring an experienced wedding planner allows you to benefit from our knowledge and relationships. You will be educated on where to save and how to stretch your dollar without sacrificing quality as well as what decisions affect your budget most significantly. For example season, number of guests, venue and caterers are some of the big items to consider. At You're The Bride we have relationships with outstanding vendors who provide quality service, fair value and superb professionalism. Hiring vendors on your own is often successful but there is risk in enlisting the services of vendors based solely on the price. You know the old saying "You pay for what you get". You receive peace of mind that you’ve made good decisions, nothing has been overlooked, that you’ve done everything you can do to ensure your guests will be happy. You will be made aware of how much wedding items and services should cost. That savings alone often will pay for a portion of our services! Only You’re The Bride has created a service that is designed to make you feel less stressed and allows you to save you time and money. In fact, 98% of our clients wished they would have started working with us sooner. They also felt immediate relief having us help. You will be a guest at your own wedding!

Myth: Your reception hall “coordinator” will help you plan your wedding

Truth: I often hear brides say that they “don’t need an outside planner” because their venue has an on-site coordinator, and unfortunately, some brides find out it's not true when it's too late. The on-site coordinator is there to manage the services being provided by the venue and the services they will provide are very different from those that we provide. A good on-site coordinator will assist you with items like table arrangements, place settings and linens and opening the building for vendor deliveries. Your on-site venue coordinator will not call your vendors to verify anything the week before the wedding, find you vendors that meet your budget, call your bakery with your final numbers, uncover any mistakes or help you to trouble shoot difficult issues with vendors on your wedding day. These on-site coordinator's are great but typically they leave after dinner service. It’s important to understand what they will and won’t do for you, so you can be properly prepared for your big day!
