  • Christine Kirby - A wedding planner is certainly worth the weight in gold!  I have been to weddings where there was a wedding planner and where there was not – the difference is night and day!  (And on the professional side, I enjoy working with wedding planners and their clients to incorporate my stationery & calligraphy into the big picture of the wedding.)  It is a seamless and enjoyable process!ReplyCancel

As a brand new planner myself, I’m realizing how important it is to be able to educate potential clients on what they gain from investing in a planner, and I think that your advice is wonderful. It’s so clear that you put a lot of thought into writing this, and I can only imagine that you must put the same attention and care into your work with your clients. Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

    • Meagles13 - Thanks so much Kelly! I did take a lot of time and thought to write this out in hopes of helping potential clients to understand the value!

      Thank you for your wonderful comment! xoxoReplyCancel

Intentionally Living, in Work & Life

This post, right here, is about as personal and as truthful as I will get in this journal. It’s all of the real reasons I became a wedding planner and why I truly love what I do. People always joke “Oh, like J-Lo” when I tell them what I do for a living, but honestly,…

  • Ellie - “I craved a career that would give me a sense of accomplishment upon the completion of each project and individual challenges to face throughout, but I also knew that I wanted to live a slow, intentional lifestyle outside of work and my choice of career would have to fit in with that.” I LOVE this!! Isn’t that the beauty of a creative career? 🙂ReplyCancel
