What is Wedding “Planning”?

 

Your wedding day is the most important day of your life. The Barb Wired team is committed to doing everything we can to help you take in every moment and create great memories.

Some suggest that all you need is a “day-of” coordinator, but a coordinator is not a planner. Hiring someone for the day is simply hiring a director to carry out what you have already planned yourself. We can never assume that the venue can fill any part of the planning role, as they are on site to oversee the venue operations solely.  

We are service-driven and will manage every aspect of the day as you have envisioned it. We offer partial and full planning packages, starting with a complimentary initial consultation. The packages can be customized to accommodate your specific needs so that everyone (including Mom!) will be able to relax and enjoy the day.

During that initial consultation and throughout the entire planning process, we will find the best ways to keep your budget in line, while still achieving your vision. We will carefully build a “team” of vendors to suit your goals and budget, all with cohesion and trust in mind. The result? A seamless wedding day!

How will a team of wedding planners make your wedding just as you imagine? Call and speak to Barb, the “Fairy Godmother” according to our brides. A quick conversation with Barb will show you the value of allowing a wedding planner to invest in your special day. As a result, you and your loved ones will have more time to enjoy your engagement and take pleasure in the planning process.
