Did you know it takes over 300 hours to plan a wedding on your own without a guide? That is the equivalent of a part time job for an entire year! Click here to learn more about that. Consequently, when you hire a luxury planner they should be fully capable of completing those 300 hours in under 100 hours. Isn’t it amazing what an expert can do? Teamed with you, your mom, your mother-in-law, and your bridesmaids the sky is the limit! For example, this one couple we had, began the planning process and started vetting a few vendors when everything started to unravel. The couple had hired and paid a retainer to a DJ. To clarify this was what they thought was a completely finished part of planning, but they were wrong. He called to say he was now unavailable only one month later after this couple had spend hours vetting him and talking to his assistant. At least they found out with enough time to hire a professional with insurance and references. By now fear and worry began to paralyze their decision making, are we making good decisions or bad ones and how do we know, they thought to themselves? Meanwhile one day while the groom was doing a Google search he saw a video about how Tonya made everything easy and was the solution to his problems. Easy, solution to my problems, he thought to himself. Above all else I love my bride-to-be and I want her to be happy no matter what so he pulled out his cell and made a call to discuss this easy solution to his problems concept further. We discussed the couples needs and then he bought luxury services for his bride-to-be. She was so overjoyed she began to cry and through the tears joyfully asked, when can we get started. I asked her if she was ready right then and there which of course she was more than ready. Most importantly I had two more peace filled clients knowing that I would make everything right, fun, and ever so easy.
Lastly, we were able to find a DJ that had insurance, references, and ended up rocking the venue all night long!
