Introduction: Are you an educated, career-driven professional, and... now you are ENGAGED!
CONGRATS.... But WAIT.... you are already BUSIER than ever!
IS THIS YOU?
- DO NOT HAVE THE TIME to plan an entire wedding OR
- Need to put together a realistic budget OR
- You might not know HOW to START, where to start, how to put together an entire PLAN, find the correct checklists without copying everything off the internet or spending $400 at Barnes and Nobles, find the RIGHT/BEST vendors, know what the BEST prices are, how to put it all together, and so on, and so on, and so on.
We know EXACTLY how you feel because we talk to people just like you every day, and we really LISTEN.
This is exactly how most of our clients felt before we started working with them. Now you should see all the fantastic reviews they've given us and how happy they are after their beautiful weddings...
Here's THE GOOD NEWS!
Whether you would love to have someone in your corner to either partner with you and work together as a TEAM to plan your wedding (hence, the TEAMWORK package)
-OR- you'd really love for an experienced professional to DO IT ALL FOR YOU! (but you can still do as little or as much as you want)
We've got you covered!
Over 95% of our clients are either FULL PLANNING clients or TEAMWORK clients, and once we chat, you will see exactly why...
If this is you, then go to our website BOLDImpactEvents and go to my calendar today, and
set up your COMPLIMENTARY One-On-One Wedding Planning Consultation!
We might be booked out for a few days, but I PROMISE it will be worth it.
All I ask is to give yourself permission to talk to us FIRST before you commit to making any final decisions. You won't regret it either way. We genuinely want what is best for you.
WHO is this NOT for?
#1 - If you are looking for the "cheapest price you can possibly find" and really don't care about how it turns out, then we are not for you...
#2 - If you are STILL wanting a Day-Of Coordinator ONLY - after you scrolled to the bottom and read my blog, then we are definitely not for you...
#3 - If you are a Bridezilla/Groomzilla/Momzilla (which I have yet to meet one in all of our weddings), then we are not for you. (this one is supposed to be funny, by the way)
#4 - If you are looking for some young, cutesy, flighty, part-time/hobbyist, inexperienced, non-certified, wedding planner who lacks business experience and a proven track record of success with happy clients... who may also have a really pretty little website without much substance or a way to reach them, then we really are not for you.
#5. If you are looking for a wedding planner, who LIMITS the number of times you can communicate with them (which is MOST of them), then we are not for you.
#6. If you are looking for a wedding planner who receives undisclosed COMMISSIONS, Bonuses, and Kickbacks from vendors and venues for referring you to them (which is very typical in the wedding industry), then we are NOT for you...
We are quite DIFFERENT & UNIQUE like no other... First, we have the BUSINESS & financial background other wedding planners do not have, -AND- our founder is one of the first women in the country who served in 2 Combat Tours in the US Army.
So as you can imagine, we GET THINGS DONE to make your day the most amazing day ever...
We have our own proven process and system. We know how to find exactly what you need and want, negotiate on your behalf, and have an experienced team who works hard to make it all happen.
Not to mention, we have an amazing DESIGN & DECOR team who looooooove what they do whether you want something simple, minimalist, sleek, modern, classic, traditional, boho, rustic, elegant, romantic, or even WOW... you will be amazed!
While Day-Of Coordination is included with all of our Planning Packages,
we DO NOT OFFER Day-Of-Coordination ONLY, and here's why...
Experienced Wedding Planners KNOW that Day-Of-Coordination ONLY does NOT WORK... so we do MONTH-OF COORDINATION at a minimum.

Why DAY-OF COORDINATION Only Doesn't Work
And why we don't offer it. Suppose you find that a coordinator does offer it. In that case, you may want to ask HOW MANY weddings (not quinces or baby showers) have they coordinated overall, per year, and so on. Everyone starts someone, and we did it too when we first started. I remember... I was a hot mess. I probably faked it pretty well since I had a lot of event experience before that. Still, one thing I didn't know was to take on a 3-day Indian wedding of 450 guests all on my own without anyone else on my team was going to kill me physically. I was going to rethink this newfound passion before I even got it off the ground!.
The point is that I only did a handful of "DAY-OF Coordination Only," and they weren't working out the way they should. The clients weren't thrilled, and I really couldn't put my finger on the problem. I emailed and texted all the vendors the day before. I did the timeline the night before, which no one read or paid attention to, collected all the favors and everything I was going to set out that morning, got up super early the morning of the wedding, and collected everything from the bride she wanted me to set out that day which really frustrated the crap out of me because they were always missing something and acted like it was my fault. I worked really hard during the wedding, and I ran around quickly to ensure everything got done on time. Of course, there was always one or two vendors who never did their job correctly and didn't want to play well with the rest of us. For some reason, there was always one or two bridesmaids who always had an attitude toward me no matter what I did for them. I bent over backward for everyone and worked my tail off, but I felt overwhelmed and rushed all day. I thought I was doing everything right, so I thought the problem was ME.
Then I put myself through one of my first wedding planning certification training courses and found out that it DOES NOT WORK and that 300 other wedding planners in the room from all over the country had the same problem. The instructors who had over 30 years of experience didn't do it either. So DAY OF COORDINATION ONLY does not work, and I promise you, and it's NOT what you want.
To plan the most important day of your life, it will take you over 100 hours of planning time. (yes, really...).
Then for a coordinator to come in for the day-of only to ensure it runs smoothly so you can relax, have fun, and not have to worry about anything at all, it takes many hours of prep time to prepare for the massive task at hand. By the way, these are NOT things the VENUE COORDINATOR does. You may have a day-of coordinator at the venue, but it is not the same thing.
The minimum we do (which is not all-inclusive) is Vendor and Venue takeover, creating complete contact lists for all vendors, the venue, the entire bridal party, and important decision-makers of the wedding, and the EXPERT review all executed contracts. (this is where the fun begins.. and it doesn't matter WHO planned the wedding)
Then we need time to start asking those important but touchy questions of the vendors because at least 100% of the time; there will be a minimum of one contract that is either too vague, has no backup plan, is missing necessary items, was executed incorrectly, has the wrong items, or never even addressed your needs, to begin with (to no one's fault). We will need to work hard to get that corrected. (remember, these are already executed, so this is when we have to put on our "sweet talk wedding planner" faces to get the vendors to make corrections hopefully, so these corrections do not cost you more money. Again, when we aren't the ones who professionally planned the wedding, this has happened at least once, 100% of the time...
Then we get busy working with vendors to receive their essential input (only inexperienced wedding planners "dictate" the timeline) in creating extensive timelines for each vendor and the venues and one Master Timeline that fits together with all of the others. We also work together to create an all-inclusive list of all items to be set out by our team on the day of the wedding and receive those items well before that day. When you wake up that morning, you are the PRINCESS. No one is scrambling to find anything at all. It has taken you months to collect and buy all of these items, so as you can imagine, they aren't going to be put together in just one day.
This is all done before we even get to the day before the wedding that you want us to do "just Day Of Coordination Only" and doesn't include all of the amazing and organized details we do on your wedding day.
So can you see WHY "Day Of Coordination ONLY" doesn't work?
