I do wedding planning from the engagement to the end of the reception if you wish, this takes all (or most) of the stresss from the bride. I will help you with your wedding from any point. And let be known now I have NO issues with gender marriages/handfastings, or mixed marriages the more the marrier. I do ask that at three pictures of your wedding including myself and the bride and groom be sent back to me so that I may use them on my web site.
I offer packages which since I feel a wedding is a very personal event I will only discuss them and my prices in person by appointment. I am a certified wedding planner through the Ashford College in Georgia. Any booked package will include one engagement photograph if the couple wishes for one. there will be a 50% deposit at the time of the booking (non-refundable) and the remaining balance due at 3 weeks before the wedding.
We can do as little as you wish by helping to just pick out your gown if your parents are not availabe, help you choose your color scheme, and bridesmaids dresses, and most of all the venue and how to keep you at or under budget and the flowers.
I do have certain vendors I go to which in turn do offer discounts these vendors on the short list includes a DJ who will take your music on mp3 if you prefer as to letting him play his (no extra cost), DJ Doug his calander fills fast. I have a photographer, who if refered by me and you are military will usually offer a discount, she does excellant work,(she just did my wedding, as well as DJ Doug. I have a bagpipest if one is needed or wanted, as well as two officiants one female and one male.
I do work with ALL religions and even those considered "alternative" I find the "alternative" weddings usually turn out the best.
but please keep in mind all planning in the world, and record keeping and planning everyting to the last second something no matter how big or how small will go wrong, it is a fact of nature, and it gives you something to talk about and laugh about for years.
