My Big Splurge...

Planning a wedding can be stressful and overwhelming. Especially if you're detail-oriented and want everything to be perfect. I even thought delegating simple tasks were hard on me because I wanted to make sure it was exactly how I wanted it.

Everything turned out as I envisioned it.

I went back and forth on getting a wedding coordinator. Could I really squeeze it in my budget? I mean, let's face adds another chunk of money on top of everything else we need. I went thru every scenario..."well I could have a friend in charge of decorating or maybe even someone in our family".....but I wanted everyone who would be at the wedding to be stress-free and to just enjoy the day. I wanted my bridesmaids and family to have fun getting ready for the "big night" rather then spending all day at the venue making sure everything is perfect.

So I splurged....I met with several wedding coordinators and went with Beth Carrick of Flawless Occasions. I did the "day-of Package" and was still able to plan everything. I then passed the baton
over to Beth the week prior to our wedding. She confirmed with all the vendors that I had booked and she made sure to make everything I had planned come together beautifully.

 My mother, mother-in-law, close friends and little nieces were all able to spend the day together getting ready. We had such a great time and it was very memorable. I wouldn't change that quality time we had for the world. I will admit that I went down to the venue a couple times just to see how everything was going (I couldn't help myself).

Good times!

Such a precious picture!!

I strongly recommend a wedding coordinator. It is just as important as the flowers or the decor. It relieves so much stress knowing you have someone handling everything for you. My wedding day went so fast and the time flew by....I don't know where I would have found the time to set the venue up if I didn't have Beth. A wedding coordinator is worth every penny. I was able to spend great time with friends & family before heading into such an important night! :)

No worries here!

It's GO time! :)

The boys had a great time getting ready too!

Our wedding was so memorable and we had such a good time celebrating our new marriage with all our friends and family. Be sure to take a moment to take the night in. It flies by and is over before you know it.
