I’ll be honest — budget was a huge concern. Besides that I contacted her references, and just tried to see in general if we had a good connection.

I used Hollie from EAP (Exquisite Affairs Productions) and I absolutely LOVED her. 🙂

Budget was an issue also, but I went with how I felt when I spoke with Katie.  For me, I knew I would be working with her for a while, so I knew we better get along really well and we did.  Plus, it was important for me that the planner had done lots of wedding similar to mine, as I got married in a loft and had to bring literally everything in, except the four walls!  If you don’t have someone who has done this before, it could be a disaster.  But Katie had lots of experience with this and it made everything very smooth with planning and the day of.

I only contacted one person/company (EAP) because they were completely in budget, and once I met with Tara I totally clicked with her and didn’t feel like I had to look elsewhere.

$20k to plan a wedding???  that’s probably how much a whole wedding can cost!

 

I know in NYC, there are probably high-budget brides.  What are the price ranges for these budget wedding planners?  And what benefits do they provide?  For instance, do they work out deals with vendors to save money, and basically pay for themselves?  Or are people just looking for help decorating, etc.?

Try Pampered Bride Weddings, they’re based out of Shrewsbury and you may have seen Jenny Orsini on the Style Network. I’m not using a planner but I queried them on some pricing b/c I was curious and they have lots of differnet packages, starting at around 4k.

I had my wedding last month and used a church friend who does a wonderful job at very reasonable prices (ONLY $500). Her name is janina and I was totally confident in giving her the reins and not worrying about a thing. I planned the wedding myself and used Janina to coordinate everything on my big day. She was in contact with me a month before the actual day and had everything executed beyond my expectations. her email is [email protected] and her website was just put up: http://www.weddingsbyjanina.vpweb.com.

Janina also custom made my ring bearer pillow. Attached please see the image. It was perfect.

I’m using Fouzia Eldrissi of My Budget Bridal.  I wasn’t even planning on getting a coordinator but thank goodness I did, she read over every contract and detail so thoroughly that she saved us from booking a shady venue (brand new- so of course they had no clue what they were doing.)

She’s very affordable and she’ll rearrange things in each of her packages based on your needs.  We only met with her but she got us right away.  She’s super organized, attentive, and really listens to what the couple wants.
