Do you really need a planner or designer?

A very common question most couples ask themselves is “do we need a wedding planner?”  
This question is sometimes followed up with the question “can we afford a wedding planner?”  

We often get a puzzled look when chatting with engaged couples when we pose the question “can you afford not to have a wedding planner?”  Here are some things to ponder:

·         Who knows how to use your budget most efficiently, and who knows what a “reasonable cost” is for each vendor’s services?
·         Who knows how to select trustworthy vendors depending on their reputation and not just their website?
·         Who can get automatic discounts through their network of wedding professionals on venues, catering, photography, cakes, etc?
·         Who has the experience to arrange, coordinate (and manage) all of the vendors and their sometimes quirky behaviors on the wedding weekend?
·         Who understands the best manner to execute a lavish reception (taking into account design, seating, traffic, venue restrictions, etc)?
·         Who knows the scoop on the latest hot trends?
·         Who makes sure that the bride is being pampered with hair/makeup at her hotel while she and her bride squad are sipping mimosas?
·         Who keeps track of all the RSVPs? (not to mention the tedious stuffing, stamping, sealing, mailing)?

Carolina Event Design allows you to concentrate on the fun aspects of the engagement and day, rather than the redundant price comparing ghost chairs and color matching a handful of eyelash pintuck linens.  We help you from beginning to end, promising you that every detail will be handled.

We offer customized budgets. Instead of cutting your budget and removing items that you've dreamed of having, we know how to justify your budget and move dollars around to achieve your dream.

We handle the most minute details of the planning process, and then combine this intricate plan with the overall design and décor that will be incredible for your wedding.  Many brides have ideas of elements they like; however, they get completely stressed when trying to incorporate everything not knowing how to tie it all together.  Color for example...funky color schemes can be a world of fun, but they must be tastefully tied together.  We've seen every color scheme imaginable, and when it's complemented in the proper manner it makes an unforgettable wow factor for your guests.
