- Wedding: October 2013
Terrified of becoming a bridezilla in real life, I have come to Weddingbee for all my complaints, silly questions, rants, and panic attacks.
BUT…. There are so many great things about wedding planning too! Lately, my planner has been one of them!
Planner #1: wanted 25,000 flat fee for planning (um. no thank you). Said they do everything but did not detail what “everything” was.
Planner #2: wanted 8,000 for full planning, (she was awesome, my dad vetoed it). Sent a full list of services, very comprehensive. But during our initial meeting did not give any thoughts about what she would actually do for ME, not just a bride in general.
Planner #3: wanted 2.000 for full planning. He had zero weddings in his portfolio, mostly does club scene, and frankly seemed ghetto, no thank you
Planner #4: 14,000 for full planning. sent detailed list. BUT. when I asked for “day-of” options offered services for 3,000. And here’s the thing, “Day of” includes the final 2 months. I am currently in the 3 final months before the big day!
When I interviewed planner #4 LK events in chicago she arrived with a gift: a bottle of wine and a cute candle. FOR THE INTERVIEW! SHe brought her planner and spreadsheets (no one else did) and gave me specifics on what she would do for each segment. She asked specific questions and made specific suggestions based on my big day. She followed up the next day by email with copies of all her spreadsheets so that I can start using them, recommendations of vendors for what I still needed, and asked for my contact list so she can begin contacting the rest of the vendors!
DING DING DING!
LK events rocks!!!!!!
Let’s hope this is a sign of more good things to come! 🙂
