You're The Bride
Who needs a wedding planner? What a waste of my budget!! Is this what you think? It's exactly what I thought. Until my fiance and I met with Tracie. Here's why. Getting married should be fun. Wedding planning should be fun. Problem: wedding planning is inherently stressful. That stress will jade your attitude towards both the planning and ultimately, the wedding day itself. And here's the worst part. The stress only increases as the time before your wedding day decreases. My fiance and I thought we knew this. We thought we could handle it. So when we met Tracie, we were skeptical. But here's the thing about Tracie, she understands. What do I mean? Right from the first meeting with Tracie, we explained everything we wanted for our day - not even knowing if we would hire her. She understood EXACTLY what we had in mind and was able to to tell us EXACTLY what it would take to get there. Moreover, she was able to tailor a program for EXACTLY what we would need. It quickly became clear that Tracie could help us in more ways than we even realized we needed help. We hired her on the spot. This was the single best wedding-planning decision we made throughout our engagement. Tracie was with us every step of the way. She listened to what we really wanted and worked hard to find vendors who were the right fit for us and the right fit for our budget. She is easily accessible, always responding to emails quickly. She is amazing at logistics. And on the day of the actual wedding, she ensured everything went smoothly. There was no pressure on my fiance. No pressure on me. No pressure on our parents or friends. We could all just enjoy the day. But the best thing about Tracie is that she was personally invested in our wedding and in us as people. We could tell that what mattered to us really mattered to her. And she goes above and beyond to make things happen. For example, my brother has a special dietary need and could not eat cake. So Tracie managed to find a special dessert from Hawaii so that he could eat while everyone else had cake. The dessert was a special request from me to surprise my brother, and Tracie made it happen. It's that kind of personal effort from Tracie that at the end of the day, makes a wedding memorable. Perhaps the best piece of advice I can offer is this: Your wedding day will be better if you hire Tracie than if you don't. So, who needs a wedding planner? Anyone who feels stress about planning. Anyone who knows exactly what they want and needs someone to make it happen. Anyone who doesn't know the first thing about wedding planning. Anyone who doesn't want to burden family and friends. And, anyone who would like to maximize their enjoyment of the entire wedding experience from the engagement until the honeymoon.Nov 5, 2015
Tracie coordinated our "dance party" wedding for 150 at the Jam Handy. Her calm, competent, caring approach made our event perfect. She is extremely good with details and her diligence assured us that everything would be taken care of. She has wonderful contacts and worked seamlessly with our caterer as well. Tracie's own staff is equally good. Do not hesitate to hire Tracie - if she can pull of an event at a venue requiring everything be brought in she can handle a "normal" venue with her eyes closed.Sep 16, 2015
