My husband and I LOVED our experience!!! We didn't know what to expect being kind of young and planning our own wedding , but everything was so perfect! We honestly recommend a "meet and greet" with Ms.Hill prior to your ceremony because we gained information and details on the proceedings that we didn't know about.. we had a really great conversation with her that made us so relaxed and comfortable as if we had known her for years! She was amazing and extremely professional and so personal I couldn't have asked for anything more on our special day! If we ever were to renew our vows in the future we already know who we would go with..😊Thank you again and we are forever greatful for your service!Apr 14, 2017Verified

Q & A
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The content of the questions answered on this site by potential clients do not even begin to get at the meat and potatoes of details we need as planners. So we at TEWE love to take a moment and speak one-on-one with you about your vision for your wedding/event to get a better understanding of how best we can be of service to you. Once we get the details we can then give you a comprehensive quote instead of giving you starting rates only to increase them later because something that comes up wasn't factored in. So let's talk!
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?There are two questions that every client should think about, and hopefully be able to answer, early in the process. The biggest ball to get the process rolling, after the dream is envisioned, is knowing your overall BUDGET! I can show you products/services/venues all day long that will fill your head with dancing sugarplums and glistening shooting stars, but might ultimately end up being hot air balloons that I'll eventually have to deflate because it doesn't fit into your now realized budget. Planners hate being dream killers, but we are the reality checks. So save us both time and heartbreak by setting your budget. Follow these few steps: 1. If your parent(s) aren't footing the bill, sit down with your fiancé and have "the talk".....the "honey how much money should we spend on our wedding, what can we afford?" talk. 2. Be realistic. Look at the time between now and your proposed wedding date. Then look at your combined monthly income and expenses. What can you afford to save between now and 1 month before your proposed date? 3. Also, mom and pops (on both sides) might not be able to foot the entire bill, but maybe they'll want to gift you a portion thereof. Get dollar amounts from them and add this to your savings in #2. Voila! You now have your BUDGET. But, your homework is not done yet. The second question you both should have answered is.........drumroll......... How many guest do you want to invite? Do a preliminary guest list. Divide them up into the following: 1. MUST invite; usually consists of bridal party, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, first cousins and best friends whom you can't live with out. 2. WANT to invite...it would be nice to see them; usually consists of extended family, friends, and co-workers you go to lunch with all the time or who invited you to their wedding. 3. IF there is room and we can afford it, it would be nice to have them list; these are your neighbors, your children's best friend and their parents, your 5th grade teacher, etc. NOTE: *Both you and your fiancé should each write these three list. *Don't forget to include spouses and significant others that live together; mainly for those in list #1...and #2 if they are family. That's a point of etiquette. Otherwise you are not obligated to invite plus ones, so don't be afraid to say no if a guest asks. *Bottom line however, you are not obligated to invite ANYONE you do not wish to come. This is your day and energy is everything. There you have it! The 2 wheels to enable the vehicle to drive the process of planning your wedding or event. Let's get rolling!!!
