Dear Brides and Grooms to Be…

Dear Brides- and Grooms-to-Be,

Wedding planning can be difficult!   People rarely tell you this when you’re daydreaming about your “big day” or busy falling in love with the partner of your dreams.  The pressure of picking flowers, venues, invites, times, people, shoes, linens, favors, (and the list goes on) can leave you feeling incredibly overwhelmed and stressed out, ultimately taking away from the joy and excitement you’re supposed to be feeling at this time, as a Bride- or Groom-to-be.  This task (or in some cases, major project) can feel daunting  and overwhelming, almost like a second  or third job.  This is especially true if you’re one of many who don’t have tons of organizational help from friends, a sister, wedding planner or partner.  The minutia of “where will Uncle Frank sit” and “why can’t I seem to find an affordable caterer for this ONE day of my freaking life” can really drain the joy out of designing what is supposed to be a genuine celebration of your love and wanting to spend the rest of your life with someone.  Who has time for that anymore?

It’s easy to leave details left hanging in the whirlwind of to-do lists, magazines, websites, binders, phone apps, wedding inspiration blogs and emails from relatives you forgot you had.  I often hear from brides 3-4 months before their wedding date who just haven’t found the right photographer for their budget, or a professional that can shoot that day, or at that location, or within that time frame.  It happens!  Please don’t start calling up old friends or Uncle Bob to do the deed.  You won’t regret hiring a professional…in fact you’ll thank yourself in twenty years.  Let me help with the burden by offering a ‘last minute/DIY discount,’ for all you overwhelmed do-it-yourselfers (and I know there are a lot of you superwomen out there).  

I’m now offering wedding packages starting at $1200 for the rest of 2019.  I get it!  Planning a wedding is a financial, mental and sometimes physical, drain.  It shouldn’t be.  Take a helping hand and enjoy this discount, effective for the rest of 2019 until I run out of dates.  Contact me for details, mention DIY2019 and in the infamous words of Sir Paul McCartney, we can work it out.

PS.  If you’re planning your wedding and have already hired a wonderful photographer and navigated to this website/page elsehow, I have a growing list of vendors (in various cities) I’m happy to share, too!  Happy planning!
