You're newly engaged, and trying to now set a budget for your big day. The task is daunting, and you really don't know how much to budget for different services and items. Contact a wedding planner! We can help you manage your budget, and make sure you receive the very highest quality of goods and services, without blowing your bank. We can also help you move money from different categories like money set aside for the cake to the floral budget, after we move through the process of working together, and finding out what is the most important thing for you both as a couple. For some couples, the cake is the most important thing, and for others it could be the centerpieces or bouquets. We, as planners will help you manage your budget to include your preferences, and we strive to get everything done for you BELOW budget.
Great planners have great relationships within their local wedding community, and we work with so many different vendors to give you great perspective on what you might be able to expect with each one. Also, we often are able to negotiate with these vendors, to get you a discounted rate on a good or service. We also receive planner discounts on invitations with different companies, which we are happy to pass on to you!
As for Diamonds and Pearls Events, we never recommend a vendor that we do not 100% know does great work, or that we haven't worked with before. We have several vendors that have become like family to us, and they often give the "Diamonds and Pearls Events" discount, when we mention we have a bride interested in their services. These are all valid and important reasons to consider when thinking about hiring a planner. We truly want you to feel like guests at your own wedding, and will go the extra mile for you to help you save money and time. Let us know if we can help you and your fiance with your big day, we'd love to hear from you!!!
