Introduction: Our service stands out because we are able to custom tailor our assistance to exactly what you need. If you have the plan in place and need someone to help execute it on the day of, we can do that. If you are unsure about some details and want someone to help finalize them and take the lead on the day of the wedding, that is one of our specialties. If you find that you just aren't sure where to start though, we can help through the entire process. We will take the time to learn about your event and the assistance you need so that you can focus on what's really important the day of your wedding - celebrating your love and starting your new lives together! We love learning about you and what makes your connection unique. Blanchard Special Events started when I was spending time with my mother-in-law. We loved watching the wedding shows and she encouraged me to start my business. After I did, we still discussed weddings, but the fun thing was that I was able to discuss the weddings I had the honor of coordinating! Now, each time we get to work with a couple, we spend time finding out what makes your relationship unique and work with you to bring that to life!

Wedding Coordination

Heidi was amazing! She was very communicative through out our entire wedding planning process and made our wedding look fantastic. My wife is very particular and often has a tough time letting go of projects because she's afraid things won't turn out as well if she doesn't do it herself. Heidi helped ease her fears by working closely with her to understand her vision for our event and took total control of the day. She assisted with several parts of our wedding including, setting up tables, configuring decor, coordinating with vendors, and keeping our wedding schedule on track. I highly recommend Heidi!

Wedding Coordination

Heidi made our wedding come together. If you’re reading this and considering whether you need a coordinator, you most definitely do. The amount of work to make this day happen left me overwhelmed with gratitude. My better half did most of the planning and Heidi’s help made all the difference. If Heidi is available, bless your lucky stars and call her.

Wedding Coordination

My wedding took place on August 31, 2018 and it wasn’t until 4 to 5 weeks before my wedding that I decided I needed a day of coordinator. When I read the reviews for Blanchard Spevial Events, they really impressed me. From the first time I spoke with Heidi, she put me at ease. She really took the time to talk to me about what I envisioned for my wedding day and was just so willing to help in any way possible. I had no idea how important that would be until I realized that I hadn’t purchased the flowers and some of the decor that I needed for the wedding venue. This was two days before the wedding and without Heidi‘s help, things just would not have come together the way they did. She worked with the venue decorator to pull together the look that I wanted with items that she had access to. She also managed to keep me calm from the day of the walk-through right through the wedding. I greatly appreciate her patience, knowledge of how the wedding should flow, and outstanding ability to work with people. Choosing to work with her was one the best decisions I made and I am so grateful to Heidi for everything she did to help make my wedding a beautiful success.

Wedding Planning

I am so glad I hired Heidi and her team to coordinate our wedding day. She communicated well, helped decorate and tear down, took care of tons of day-of details and really helped us to to enjoy our day. I would absolutely recommend her services to anyone needing assistance in planning and executing an event. She even purchased and delivered our cake which was a great time saver. Thank you, Heidi!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Most importantly, our pricing is flexible. Whether you are looking for help with a specific item or a day of coordinator, or you are interested in full service planning, we can create a package that meets your needs and budget.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to get to know each of our couples individually so we are happy to schedule a call or face to face meeting before you make a decision. When you decide to work with us, we arrange an initial planning meeting and then design a countdown schedule and checklist that takes us through the wedding day.
